Dynamic Password


Dynamic Password

Dynamic password, also known as one-time password (OTP), is a security mechanism, designed to reduce static password-related fraud and abuse when using e-banking applications. To that end, for certain banking operations, instead of using a static password, a temporary one-time password is generated and delivered to you either through text message (SMS) or MEB OTP mobile application which can be applied within 120 seconds to carry out the banking operation.
