Good for those worried about being scammed online; offer ends 31 August
Personal finance portal, SingSaver, conducted a recent pandemic survey to find out more about Singaporeans changing financial habits. The poll gathered 1,000 responses on Singaporeans’ attitudes pertaining to their personal finance amid Covid-19. There were two key findings:
1) There is a rise in online banking
2) Singaporeans are concerned about online data security
Here are the details:
- 7 out of 10 respondents are concerned about online data security due to increased usage of online banking
- 35% of the respondents indicate that they are “not comfortable” or “neutral” when using online banking tools
- When asked reasons for their discomfort, 45% of these respondents mentioned the fear of fraudulent transactions
