Online Banking Security Tip

  • Always enter the Citibank International Personal Bank Singapore website address "www.ipb.citibank.com.sg" or "www.ipb.citigold.com.sg" directly into your browser address bar before you login to ensure that you are on the legitimate Citibank website.
  • Check that the bank's website address changes from http:// to https:// and a security icon that looks like a lock or key appears at the bottom of the webpage when authentication and encryption is expected.
    • If you do not see the "https://...", close your browser session immediately and call our 24-Hour CitiPhone Banking at
      +65 6224 5757.
    • Even if you see "https://..." and a warning is shown that the SSL Certificate does not belong to Citibank International Personal Bank, you must terminate the session immediately and contact our 24-Hour CitiPhone Banking at +65 6224 5757 to report the incident.
  • You can click on the lock icon at the bottom of the webpage to review the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate information. The certificate should be issued to www.ipb.citibank.com.sg or www.ipb.citigold.citibank.com.sg.
  • Click log out when you have finished your banking session. Do not just close your browser window.
  • Update the bank when you change your contact details. This will enable us to contact you in a timely manner if we detect unusual transactions.

We wish to inform you that the revised MAS Notice 626, "Prevention of Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism" has come into effect. The new regulations are to help combat money laundering and terrorist financing. These new rules will require banks to include additional information on wire transfer payments. The rules will also require customers to provide details of the beneficial owner(s) of the customers' accounts.

If you are remitting / transferring monies exceeding S$ 2,000 overseas, effective July 1 2007, the revised MAS Notice 626 on Prevention of Money Laundering requires banks in Singapore to provide complete originator's information, i.e.:

  1. The name of the remitter.
  2. The remitter's account number.
  3. The remitter's address (or date and place of birth).

In addition, if you are receiving an inward wire transfer for credit into your account, the revised Notice also requires banks in Singapore to obtain the complete originator information from the remitting bank. There may be a delay in crediting such funds to your account if the remitting bank had not provided the complete originator information.
