iBusiness Banking Security Centre

In 2015, £755 million was lost to financial fraud, but we can all help to lower this figure by remembering one simple action – to stop and think. 

That’s why the Take Five campaign – led by Financial Fraud Action UK Ltd - is encouraging the nation to do just that; to take time to stop, step back and think before they act.

NEW Fraudulent Screens on iBB

We are aware of new fraudulent messages that are being used in an attempt to trick customers into making fraudulent payments on iBB. You may be asked to key codes provided by iBB into your Digipass.

iBB will never ask you to do this.


Examples of some of the fraudulent messages are:


The computer you are trying to log onto has not been recognized. Changes in AIB Cookies Policy require you to confirm your identity. You can do this by using your iBusiness Banking (iBB) Digipass, or visit your local Business Centre for assistance. Please accept our apology for any inconvenience it may cause.


For more information, go to our Common Frauds and Threats page.


How do you know that you are under attack?

  • Bogus iBB screens or pop windows asking you to key details into your iBB Digipass (see the screen below)
  • Your PC slows down while using iBB – particularly at logon.
  • Suspicious phone calls are received purporting to be from Allied Irish Bank (GB) regarding iBB – asking you to create codes on your Digipass, perform test payments and/or authorise payments.

Remember: Always check that the Beneficiary details for payments you are authorising are legitimate.
