Automatic log-off

For your security, you will be logged off after twenty minutes of inactivity on the site. Therefore, no one can use the site in your place if you leave your computer without logging off. To log back on, you must re-enter your access code and personal password.

  • Each time you log on, check the date and the time of your last visit (displayed in the top right of the screen when you log on), and the last operations recorded (personal information, trading orders, etc.). You can then detect any anomalies. Mobile internet connections are also included.
  • Remember to log off by clicking "Log-off" when you have finished using the site.

For your security, your banking website uses "cookies". These are small text files stored by your browser, which are used to identify you each time you change a page on the site. This device makes your browsing quicker and easier.

The SSL128 bit communication protocol

Societe Generale uses the SSL 128 bit (Secure Socket Layer) communication protocol to encrypt all data exchanged. The SSL 128 has the highest level of encryption available on public web browsers and ensures the privacy and the integrity of data exchanged over the web. The website and your workstation establish an encrypted connection through which you can send your customer code and your password without the risk that they will be intercepted by a third party.

7 good practices to adopt

1. Use a quality password

It is essential that you know how to select a quality password, i.e. one that is hard to find or guess by a third party (for example, do not put your date of birth).

2. Have an up-to-date, protected operating system and software

It is advisable to regularly check all your software versions, particularly:

  • Your operating system (e.g. Windows, Mac OSX)
  • Your web browser
  • Your antivirus software
  • Your firewall
  • Your anti-spyware
3. Do not click links too quickly

A typical attack, which aims to fool the web user to steal personal information, is to encourage him/her to click a link in a message. The link may be misleading and malicious. Instead of clicking the link, enter the website address in the address bar of your browser.

4. Be vigilant before you open an unknown email and/or an attachment

One of the most effective methods of spreading viruses is to use email attachments. To protect yourself, never open attachments from people you do not know.

5. Monitor the disclosure of your personal information

It is highly recommended that you never leave your personal details on forums and that you never enter sensitive, personal information (such as bank details) on websites which do not offer all the necessary guarantees.

6. Check that an SSL padlock is present and/or that you are on a secure site

In the "address bar" of your browser, check the spelling of the website address and that an SSL padlock is present. You can easily check that you are on a secure site through the "https" (instead of http) which appears in the address bar of your web browser.

7. Disable ActiveX components by default

You are advised to disable their default interpretation and to only select to enable them where this is necessary or if you believe that you are on a trusted website.
