Get free security software with Barclay's bank online banking

From shopping and ordering takeaways to socialising and dating, the internet is becoming an ever more prominent feature in the everyday life of the consumer.

And, because of its high convenience factor, online banking is also growing in popularity. People who use internet banking can manage their money 24/7 at home, on the move, even on holiday!

Among other things, Barclays Bank online banking allows users to check statements, transfer money between savings and current accounts, and make one-off and regular payments.

To help keep your personal details as safe as possible, the bank issues its internet customers with PINsentry, a card reading device which provides an extra layer of protection when you log in to your online account.

By inserting a debit card into the gadget, it then creates a one-off code to be used for certain internet transactions such as setting up new payments.

In addition, Barclay's Bank is offering online banking customers free internet security software. The Kaspersky Internet Security suite, which normally costs up to £49.99, can be installed on up to three computers or laptops in your home. It is designed to help combat online fraud and identity theft and provides protection against trojans, viruses, spyware, worms, keyloggers and phishing.

The bank also offers a free Kaspersky Mobile Security suite for mobile banking, which retails at £19.99, or Anti-Virus for Mac, normally priced £39.99. To get the complimentary software, you simply need to log in to your Barclay's online bank account and follow the links for the special offer.
