The Russians are at risk of losing their savings due to SMS with code passwords. Experts consider this method of confirming transactions unsafe.

Some Russian banks began to request more often by phone a code to confirm transactions and activate services. According to «Kommersantand»This method is practiced in Promsvyazbank, Pochtbank and Tinkoff Bank. As a rule, the message indicates that passwords cannot be communicated to anyone, even bank employees. However, banking security experts believe that this can be confusing to customers.

Such a system of interaction can become a habit of customers. This, in turn, will lead to the loss of vigilance and increase the likelihood of becoming a victim of fraudsters, because there are already precedents when the attackers call from the replacement numbers and appear to be employees of the bank.

According to experts, the banks themselves tend to refuse to send codes to SMS, but so far they cannot afford it due to technological and economic restrictions.
