Safekeeping and updating your personal password            

  • Upon completing your enrollment with Bank of Jerusalem's online service, you will receive your initial personal password. Within 30 days after receiving your password, you should login to the bank website and replace the initial password with a new one - known only to you.
  • Should you not login to the online service within 180 days from replacing your password - the password will be automatically blocked. To release a blocked password, use the "Restore password" service on the website, or contact our Technical Support Help Desk on 076-8096666.
  • We at Bank of Jerusalem recommend choosing a special, complex password - which another person would find hard to guess. Your personal password may be composed of six or more characters, including at least two English letters and two digits. To get a robust, high-quality password, we recommend using special characters, such as @, $ or !
  • The new password should not contain any personal information which others may know, such as name, surname, birthday, ID number, bank account number, any simple sequence of digits etc.
  •  If you enter a wrong password five times in a row, the service will be blocked. To remove such blocking, restore your password using the website or our Technical Support Help Desk.  
  • Do not write your personal password on any note or paper kept in a visible place. 
  • To ensure your security, replace your password once every 180 days.
  •  We recommend that you DO NOT use any computer software for automatically saving passwords.
  • Do not provide your personal password to any one - not even your spouse, friends or relatives. Even if you get a request, by email or telephone, from someone claiming to be a "Bank of Jerusalem representative" - do not give out your password under any circumstances.
  • Do not send any confidential account information by email, such as account number, username, password or credit card number.
  •  In any case of suspected unauthorized use of your account - inform the bank immediately in any way that is convenient to you:
1.      Call a Bank of Jerusalem representative on *5727.
2.      Call the Technical Support Help Desk on 076-809666
