“Docomo Account” Issue Request to Consider Multiple Authentication Methods National Bankers Association September 14 18:55
The National Bankers Association has asked banks across the country to consider multiple authentication methods, such as “one-time passwords,” when linking electronic payment accounts with bank accounts, in the case of illegally withdrawing deposits and deposits at banks around the country through “docomo accounts” of electronic payment services.
DOCOMO Account is a service that allows electronic payment in conjunction with bank accounts, and since October last year, deposits and deposits of bank accounts in various places have been illegally withdrawn, and a total of 120 cases and damage of more than 25 million yen have been confirmed so far.
In response to this problem, the National Bankers Association has issued a notification to member banks to make sure that there are sufficient procedures in place to prevent spoofing when transferring accounts in cooperation with electronic payment services and bank accounts.
Then, as a means of verifying identity, we asked them to consider not only the PIN number of the cash card but also multiple authentication methods such as “one-time password”.
The National Bankers Association said, “Protecting customers’ assets while being aware of the convenience of cashless payments is a top priority. We want our members’ banks to respond quickly and politely.”
