Trusteer Rapport is advanced security software that protects your online banking communication from being stolen by criminals. The program is highly recommended and offered by your bank as an additional layer of security to any antivirus or security software the customer already uses. By protecting your Internet connection and creating a tunnel for safe communication with your bank’s website, Trusteer Rapport blocks malicious attempts to steal money from your account. When you browse to a website, the Trusteer Rapport icon appears in or near the browser’s address bar. The icon is green when Rapport is protecting your communication with the website, and the icon is grey when the communication is not protected.
