Thanks guys. The house problem should (?) be solved when we move out the clay lump built cottage into the modern bungalow. Depends how much insulation we manage to stuff in to the walls though! Will bear the solution in mind as it is a pita to keep explaining to people that the will not reach us on our mobile!

Different Banks, different systems and names.

A Barclay & Nationwide reader Geoff, I'm led to believe all Visa cards will work with all "Visa" cards.

Nationwide reader weighs 45gms and the Barclay 62gms.

They obviously would not fit in a card pocket in a wallet like the HSBC device. Don't know the weight but seems to be the weight of 4 credit cards.

It gets worserer and worserer.

I check my balance almost every day online here in France to see if anything has 'hit' or deposited in. It takes seconds and immediately lets me know of any dubious activity.
Today the bank has decided I need "Two Step Authentication" just to look at the balance.
As the signal to any mobile phone is hit and miss at best I called the bank and asked if this was really necessary? It's a government directive the girl at the bank stated and it's obligatory.
But I said as the cell signal is crap I leave the phone in the car just for emergencies and hardly ever use it. Her answer is to go check the phone in the car every time you want to access your account for the SMS code?? Even when in pyjamas in the pouring rain? Still no sympathy or excuses.

My UK Nat West started this and would only send a SMS code to our UK portable which is usually dead flat in my wifes handbag. Progress my arse.!

Can you not get an option to get it to use a land line number Ray? I think some two step Auth systems can do that. It will be an automated message reading the number so you will need a pen or put it on speaker to type it in.

To be fair its actually a good system if a bit of a PIA. Almost impossible to hack.

I will ask Baz as I do only check my banks at home. Not wishing to risk any phone or Wi-Fi.

Yes, it is a nuisance Ray, but I'm with Barry on this - I do think it makes it more secure.

Maybe buy a waterproof onesie??!! Haha!! I can just see it!
