    Certificate from my bank with a chip card reader in where I put my credit card and authorize the transactions with the card pin code.
    Sweet and easy, and I assume it is the safest way.

    I use my keyboard and make sure nobody is looking over my shoulder ;)


    As long as the computer is mine and noone else has used it, I can log in without any extra mumbo jumbo. If someone else has had use of the computer, I do not use online banking on that pc :)

    Empty Sandbox.
    Keepass 144-bit master password, stored in my head and in my head only.
    48-bit truly random login password (max chars allowed by the bank).
    no other info (bank url, bank login) stored anywhere in my computer, only in my head.

    For money transfers, my bank has a 6-digit unique password generating token, stored in a safe box.

    I use the fingerprint scanner on my laptop. Swiping my finger automatically logs me into my bank account. I also use netcode where any transaction requires a passcode which is sent to my mobile phone.

    I use Online Armor in banking mode to communicate with my money providers :)

    In addition to strong HIPS OA banking mode provides strict IP set where your computer can connect to. Any unexpected connections are just dropped.

    I answered the poll as I don't use anything . As long as my computer is clean from malicious software , my bank uses secure HTTP connection and I use a certificate signing for transactions , I feel calm for my money .

    Unfortunately, everything fails sometimes, including brains.exe. So I'd think about more multilayered protection :)

    Password stored in Password Safe. I also use a card supplied by my bank that generates a random 6 digit number to complete the log-in.
