Our Toolbox web page uses 128-bit encryption, which is the same as banking websites! You can rest assured that your information is secure. To crank the safety up a notch, we don’t ask you for your full credit card number, just a part of it.
If you exceed the limit of unsuccessful attempts, you’ll be barred from using the password retrieval tool for that username (or for any username on that specific computer) for 24 hours. If this happens to you, please give us a call on 13 22 58 to retrieve your password.
For security reasons, we must limit the number of password retrieval attempts by username as well as by the specific computer being used to retrieve it.
If you are using a work computer or non-iiNet internet connection, you may be behind a firewall. That means our system can mistake your computer for another computer that is also behind the same firewall. It doesn't mean that someone has retrieved your password, but unfortunately it does mean that you can't use the retrieval service from that computer until later.
If this happens to you, please give us a call on 13 22 58 to retrieve your password.
These days it's really easy to end up with more usernames and passwords than you can keep track of. Why not write them down and keeping them somewhere safe at home, like the same place you keep your passport or birth certificate? You can always check it if it ever slips your mind.
If you are no longer able to access your account due to lost account information, or you need to take control of an account via Power of Attorney or a similar scenario where the account holder is unable to manage their account, please call us on 13 22 58.
