- Do not use the same PIN that is associated with something else (email, online shopping account, debit or credit card PIN, etc.)
- Tips on accessing the Online banking service
- Access the Online banking service only through the official website of the bank: www.otpbank.al. Check that you are accessing the online banking site with https: // and it is followed by the respective name of the site and in the top or bottom panel of the site is the lock mark

- Tips on getting “phishing” messages
Phishing is a “trap” message used to extract confidential personal or professional information (login, password …), to commit fraud or to install malicious software on your device. The “hacked” URL coming to your email or your device as an SMS may seem perfectly legal. However, if you hover your mouse over the URL without clicking it, you can see the redirect page (the address of where it actually leads). If the URL address in the message text is different from the address that appears when you place the cursor, it means that we are dealing with a phishing email.
Please notify the relevant customer relationship specialist at the bank in case of receiving suspicious emails.
Do not open SMS / MMS / e-mail messages without checking the sender’s identity and title. If you have any doubts about the origin of the message, delete it immediately and do not open any files that may have been attached and do not follow any links that may be in the message.
- Other tips
It is your responsibility as a user to make sure your device has licensed antivirus software and keep it up to date. Make sure you always keep your device’s operating system up to date.
Do not download / install any non-standard / unreliable software on your login device.
