I can't honestly remember the last time I used my generator. Perhaps NBG are now catching up?

I've been using OTP via SMS with NBG for the last 2 years

Now Alpha Bank use Viber for preference, or SMS if you don't have a Viber account, to deliver the OTP. I presume they prefer Viber because sending an SMS through the telecom network must cost them something, while I think Viber is free, and Viber uses end-to-end encryption so it should be more secure. I haven't used it but I might give it a try.

NBG are pushing Viber too.


Yep. I loged into NBG this morning and got the blurb about Viber. Lacking a Viber account I got my code via sms. I must admit I hadn't even noticed before that OTP via sms was even available.
