How do I know my FastNet Classic Internet Banking is safe?

Last Updated: 29 Sep 2016

We’ll always ask you for your unique username and password when you log in to FastNet Classic. If you attempt to log in with an incorrect username or password, after 5 attempts you will be locked out. During this process you may be presented with our reCAPTCHA security feature.

We’ll also show the time and date of your last log in, so you know that no-one else has accessed your accounts.

FastNet Classic security monitoring and software is sophisticated; we use something called 128-bit encryption which scrambles information passed between you and ASB before it travels over the internet.

FastNet Classic holds an Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificate. It’s a badge of authentication and means that if you're using Internet Explorer 11 or another modern browser, your address bar will turn green when you visit FastNet Classic. This makes it easy for you to be sure you’re on the genuine ASB website.

FastNet Classic also has a second level of security, called Netcode. This applies to One-Off, Automatic, International and Bill Payments. Netcode sets a 24-hour limit (midnight to midnight) of $1000 for payments made from your account. You can change this amount to anything between $0 – 1000.

When One-Off, Bill, International and Automatic Payments of a certain type exceed $1000, you’ll be sent a Netcode; either as a SMS message, or to your Netcode token.  You will need to enter this code to authorise these payments.
