If you’re trying to transfer money via i-Muamalat but encounter some issues, probably it’s due to the BMMB i-MSecure token.
But do not worry too much. We will help you to activate BMMB i-MSecure in a simple and easy way.
What is BMMB i-MSecure?
BMMB i-MSecure is a new solution designed by Bank Muamalat to authorise transactions, offering a more effective alternative to the traditional SMS OTP/TAC system. In July 2023, BMMB seamlessly integrated this feature within the i-Muamalat application for enhanced user convenience and security.
The BMMB i-MSecure system employs advanced technology to validate transactions, ensuring a higher level of security for BMMB customers.
This system is designed to eliminate the vulnerabilities associated with SMS OTP/TAC systems, such as interception or retrieval of OTPs by unauthorized individuals.
By incorporating this feature into the i-Muamalat application, BMMB not only enhances the security of its services but also simplifies the transaction process for its users.
Customers can now authorize transactions directly from the app, without the need for SMS codes. This innovation underscores BMMB’s commitment to provide secure and convenient banking solutions for its customers.
