It's important to you, and to us
We maintain strict security standards and procedures to prevent unauthorized access to information about you. We use leading technologies such as data encryption, firewalls, server authentication, and digital certificates to protect the security of your data. We also require the use of 128–bit encryption browsers or a browser that supports Server Gated Cryptography (SGC). SGC allows a browser using 40–bit encryption to function as if it has 128–bit encryption for the duration of the session.
Browsers (such as Netscape or Internet Explorer) using 128–bit encryption (or supporting Server Gated Cryptography) provide the highest level of commercially available security for your financial transactions. Encryption transforms the banking transactions you send over the Internet into code that can then be translated by us.
A Digital Certificate is a randomly generated set of characters that our computer sends to your browser. The browser on your computer stores this information and uses it to verify that the Internet address is actually HSBC Bank USA, N.A. and not someone masquerading as the Bank. It can be used in the same way a passport or driver's license is used as a means to establish identity.
You have a significant role to play in security.
There are three pieces of important information that you must keep confidential – your Personal Internet Banking Username, Password and Security Key. These are the keys to your access into the Service.

For your added security, HSBC has updated a session time–out feature. If your EasyView session is idle for 14 minutes, a warning notice will appear giving you the opportunity to either continue or to logoff the session. The system allows you 1 minute to respond before your session is automatically ended. This is done to protect your accounts from unauthorized access if your PC is left unattended and you are unable to exit normally. You will then need to log back on to EasyView.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Personal Internet Banking Username, Password and Security Key. Adding new accounts to the Service will require that you also provide authentication for your other online accounts that you wish to add to EasyView. For your convenience, an auto–login feature is available that allows "click through" access directly to your online services. You can disable the auto–login feature, by account, at any time. However, the importance of protecting your Personal Internet Banking log on information is increased significantly when using the auto–login feature, as direct access to your online services is enabled.
Although every precaution has been taken to offer the service using state–of–the–art security measures, there is a risk of unauthorized access to your personal information if you fail to exercise adequate controls over your login information. Your registration for the Service acknowledges that this risk exists and that neither HSBC nor Yodlee is liable to you for any harm or damage that may occur.
Lastly, always remember to exit and close the browser window when you have completed your banking. If you suspect any unusual account activity, email or contact us at 800.975.4722.
