is it safe to enter my bank's online username and password on paybright’s website instead of redirecting me to my bank’s website?
Why would they need your username and password ? Any service that needs to authenticate you using banking credentials will redirect you there, or a popup, and use and backend API to get any authentication tokens. Just like Revenu QC, Revenu Canada, and any other services.
Call me paranoid, but there is no way I would enter my banking credential DIRECTLY on some other website.
I agree, sounds crappy, a redirect like on the CRA website is fine, but asking plainly I wouldn't trust.
Redirecting you to your banks website is actually safer. Why would you not want this ?
Thanks guys! That’s what I thought too and haven’t done so. But what’s weird is that Paybright is the company Fizz deals with for financing their phones and plans. Did anyone else have the same issue or was I redirected from Fizz.ca to a fake Paybright website?
So I personally haven’t used Paybright but I am confused as to why they want your bank log-in details.
I don’t think you were redirected to a fake site but it’s still quite confusing
The only thing they should need is your direct deposit details so that they can withdraw the money but not your online bank credentials
@StefanM Did you try it to ser what I mean?
@StefanM Did you try it to see* what I mean?
Don't think it's safe.
What do you mean ?
