Identity and access management controls
Identity and access management is the way we help you control access to your online account information. Individuals who require access on behalf of your organisation are issued security credentials with a Password or PIN. The security credential is used to uniquely identify an individual when they log on to an ANZ online platform.
The type of credential that you will be issued with will depend on the platform that you are using, the regulatory requirements of your country and the access level that you have been assigned within your online account (for example, view only access or transaction approver etc.).
ANZ has a number of different security credential types which are described below.
Common security features of ANZ credential types
- Credentials are issued in an inactive state. You will not be able to use the credential until you have been successfully verified and provided with a temporary Password or PIN.
- The credential will be automatically disabled after a number of incorrect log on attempts.
- For security reasons credentials that have not been activated or have been inactive for a defined period of time will be automatically disabled.
User ID / Password
- Password strength controls (such as rules about password length, special characters, case etc.) have been implemented to reduce the risk of someone guessing or stealing the Password.
