Security Tips

To safeguard your online security, ET Net wishes to remind you to stay alerted when accessing and using our online services through our financial and lifestyle website at www.etnet.com.hk, and/or our mobile applications (“ET Net Services”) and also wishes to bring your attention to the following security measures:

Beware of Online Threats

  1. It is not advisable to attempt access to ET Net Services by clicking on any hyperlinks or attachments or scanning any QR codes embedded in or through any third party websites or mobile applications, search engines, emails, SMS messages, instant messages, social networking platforms, URLs or mobile applications of unreliable or questionable sources. You should at all times have access to the ET Net Services through ET Net official website (www.etnet.com.hk) or ET Net Mobile Applications, or by bookmarking ET Net official website (www.etnet.com.hk) for subsequent access. Download and upgrade ET Net Mobile Applications from the official applications stores or our websites.
  2. Please take precautions against hackers, viruses, spyware, and any other malicious software when sending or receiving emails, opening email attachments, visiting websites or downloading files or programs from them which you are well known of or are unreliable. Do not open files or browse websites, or click on the hyperlinks, QR codes and attachments in emails or messages received from SMS, instant messaging and social networking platforms of suspicious origins.
  3. During your access to and use of ET Net Services, you should be aware of any unusual login screens (such as unordinary pop-up window, or unusual slowed computer response, and/or request for providing information of a personal nature). In case of doubt, you should never concede to any instructions of these suspicious webpages for inputting information and should close them immediately.

Protect Your Device

  1. Only use the operating system, mobile applications and browsers recommended by ET Net for access to ET Net Services. Do not “jailbreak” or “root” your mobile device.
  2. Keep the operating system, mobile applications and browsers installed on your device up-to-date with the latest security updates and patches.
  3. You should install firewall, anti-virus and anti-spyware software/programs in your device and keep them up-to-date and scan your device from time to time to strengthen its security.
  4. Do not download, install or run mobile applications, software or programs from questionable sources on your device. You are recommended to set your device to block automatic or unintended installation of mobile applications, software or programs from unknown sources and keep it properly configured at all times.
  5. Carefully read installation and/or permission requests from websites, mobile applications and other software or programs. Be wary of any unusual or unnecessary requests.
  6. Check the storage, battery, and mobile data usage in your device from time to time to see if there are any suspicious or unnecessary mobile applications and stop them from running in the system. Uninstall any suspicious or unnecessary mobile applications when necessary.
  7. Please set a passcode to lock your device which should be difficult to guess and activate the auto-lock function at all times. If your device is capable of biometric authentication (such as fingerprint or facial recognition), do not let any other person register his/her biometrics on it or impair any features that can strengthen the security of biometric authentication.
  8. Do not share your device with other people or use other people’s devices for access to and use ET Net Services.

You should also avoid disclosing your personal information to anyone or sharing the access information in any social networking platform.
