Security

Your Internet security takes a high priority at Landsbankinn. We make every effort to ensure that your personal information remains secure and inaccessible to unauthorised parties.

When you open Landsbankinn online banking, your browser transmits your user name and password from your computer to our server using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) technology. SSL encrypts this information before it leaves your computer, thus ensuring that only Landsbankinn's server can read it.

Once you have logged in, you can ensure that your Internet connection is secure in two ways:

  • Check for the tiny padlock Hengilás icon, which is usually located in the bottom right corner of your browser window. A closed (locked) padlock indicates a secure connection. If you are using Internet Explorer, you may have to place a check mark beside "Status Bar" in the View menu at the top of your browser in order for the padlock to be visible.
  • Check for the symbols "https://" at the beginning of the URL (in the address line of your browser). The letter "s", for "security" indicates a secure connection.
