Traditional banking as we know it is on its deathbed. In fact, technology is taking over at the banking halls. It is not uncommon to see robots serving people if you ever find them in a banking hall. Moreover, with high mobile penetration, a typical Equity bank account holder is doing business far from banking halls.

However online banking comes with its own risks. Remember to avoid public Wi-Fi, public computers and keep your passwords to your heart.
