Security Token

Citi Private Bank is committed to offering the highest level of online security.

The Security Token is simple to use. It is a small device the size of a credit card. By holding down the red "OTP" (one-time password) button for two seconds, a random 6-digit security code appears. The code works with your User Name and Password each time you log on to the Citi Private Bank Web site. Together, the password and security code provide additional measures against unauthorized access to your online account information.

The Security Token supplements existing security technologies, including 128-bit encryption and a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection. Our approach helps to protect you and your privacy against unauthorized access to your account information online. To obtain the Security Token, please consult with your Private Banker.
