    Sorry to duplicate a thread but it wasn't generating any replies in privacy software, so perhaps this section is better suited. I am interested for any views on this software.
    Thanks Rollers



    Any thoughts on this new software that Natwest has brought out for its customers. Is is any good?

    The rapport website can be found here http://www.trusteer.com/solution

    Is this worthy of consideration, especially as it can also be used for other secure sites, you just need some manual additions. I did try it sandboxed and it used about 18meg of memory, which I thought was a bit steep for an addon.

    The way banks are behaving at the moment, I would not trust anything they say, The protection I have now will suffice as will using whats left of my grey cells.

    Thanks for the replies. I have it installed but just as another layer of security above the rest of my apps.

    Is there a list of supported financial institutions?

    Have you configured it manually for additional sites? Can you describe how it works? The description on the NatWest site is pretty vague.

    Yes you can configure it manually to protect up to 50 sites. The whole address bar goes green when you connect to a protected site. There is more to it than I have found or used yet, it is supposed to give extra protection agains keylogging and screen capturing when on protected sites.
    Its easy to use and you forget its there until you hit one of your protected sites. I believe also it has some anti phishing where it will altert you if you are on some compromised cloned site instead of the one you want.
    Runs nice and light here does not affect browsing on xp home and explorer 8.
