What is a card reader?

A card reader is a security device needed by all Anytime banking customers, looking to get the most out of their Anytime Banking.  It works with your Anytime Banking service to provide an extra layer of protection against online fraud. The card reader also allows you to set up new payments, change your details and more.

It's battery powered so there is no need to attach it to your computer. It works by simply reading the security chip on your debit card and generates a code which you type into your computer to authorise certain transactions and processes.
