Encryption is the conversion of data into a format, called a ciphertext, that cannot be understood by people or computers not authorised to view it.
Clydesdale Bank's Internet Banking requires that your browser supports a minimum of 128-bit SSL Encryption, which is the industry standard. This is to ensure that your personal data cannot be read by third parties while being transmitted across the Internet.
Most modern browsers, like Internet Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla Firefox, Safari and Opera, fully support 128-bit encryption, and some use higher levels, including 256-bit encryption.
No, you can access the Internet Banking Service through any Internet Service Provider or broadband provider.
Most computers used in corporate organisations are set up with a server through which all communication passes, and this is protected by a security mechanism called a firewall. If you are at work and can't connect to the Clydesdale Bank website or to Internet Banking, it is likely that your organisation has a firewall that deliberately blocks access as part of the organisation’s security policies. We suggest you contact your organisation’s system administrator to arrange access through the firewall.
