If you are unable to access the AIB Internet Banking service.

  • Ensure JavaScript is enabled

    AIB Internet Banking has been designed to work with JavaScript enabled.

    To enable JavaScript, please follow the instructions below.

     

    Internet Explorer  
    • Click on 'Tools' at the top of the browser window. For Internet Explorer 9, 10 & 11 the tools option is a small circular icon at the top right hand corner of the page.

    • Click on 'Internet Options'

    • Click on the 'Security' tab

    • Ensure the Internet icon is highlighted and then click 'Custom Level'

    • Scroll down to 'Scripting' (almost at the end of the list)

    • Ensure 'Active scripting' and 'Scripting of Java applets' is enabled

    • A warning may appear stating 'Are you sure you want to change the security settings for this zone' press 'Yes'

    • Click 'OK' to close the open boxes

    • Close down all open Internet Explorer browser windows and open a new browser window for the changes to take effect  

     

    Mozilla Firefox
    • In the address bar, type about:config and press Enter.

    • Click "I'll be careful, I promise" if a warning message appears.

    • In the search box, search for javascript.enabled

    • Toggle the "javascript.enabled" preference (right-click and select "Toggle" or double-click the preference) to change the value from "false" to "true".

    • Click on the "Reload current page" button of the web browser to refresh the page.

       
    Google Chrome Version
    • Click the Chrome Menu at the end of the url bar (located to the right of the yellow star)

    • Click the 'Settings' option

    • Click on 'Show Advanced settings'

    • Scroll down to 'Privacy'

    • Select 'Content Settings'

  • Check your browser is not saving your password

    Some browsers may ask you if you wish the browser to save your password. This can be a useful and time-saving option for some single password sites.

    However, AIB Internet Banking will ask for different digits from your PAC each time. In this case a browser with a 'saved password' will try to use the wrong 'password'.

    To stop this from happening follow the instructions below:

     
    Internet Explorer
    • Click on 'Tools' at the top of the browser window. For Internet Explorer 9, 10 & 11 the tools option is a small circular icon at the top right hand corner of the page.

Are you getting a message about the Security Certificate when accessing online banking through Google Chrome?

  • Why are you seeing that message when you connect to onlinebanking.aib.ie?

    1. That onlinebanking.aib.ie has a valid certificate, that the certificate has been verified by a third party and that your connection is encrypted and secure.
    2. It is also telling you that the site uses the SHA-1 algorithm as part of the encryption mechanism. This is happening because Google Chrome now identifies when a website uses the SHA1 algorithm for secure communications. 
  • What is SHA-1?

    SHA-1 is one of a set of encryption algorithms used to secure your connection with onlinebanking.aib.ie. An industry effort to migrate from SHA-1 to the more secure SHA-2 is underway, Google is leading this change and has started to highlight the use of SHA-1 in newer versions of Chrome. This explains why you are seeing this message now. Other browsers will follow over the coming months. 

  • What is AIB doing in response?

    AIB is currently updating its systems to support the SHA-2 algorithm within its online channels. 

     

    After this is completed you will no longer see this message and your communication with onlinebanking.aib.ie will use SHA-2.
