What is a one-time password?

It's common for online web applications to ask users for an extra layer of security for their account. The general term for this is 2-factor authentication (2FA). There are various ways of implementing 2FA and using one-time passwords is one of them.

A one-time password is a randomly generated, six-digit number sent to a phone as an SMS or can be generated via a physical or virtual security token. It's valid for one session or transaction and is only available for a very short period.

Staying secure is easy.

When performing certain transactions online via your Regional Australia Bank Mobile Banking App or Internet banking you'll be asked to enter a 'one-time password' to make sure the request is being performed by you and no one else.
