Constant protection from computer viruses, malware and other external threats requires continuous vigilance.

This means regularly scanning your computer to ensure its systems - including virus protection software and settings - are up to date.

To help maintain your online protection, Westpac Protect Security Tools is a simple 2 step process incorporating a system check and virus scan, designed to help increase your online protection.

Step 1 - System check

To help maintain your online protection and improve your browsing experience, the system check is a Westpac tool which will perform a diagnosis of your system settings. The check will be performed based on:

  • Your version of browser and operating system
  • Your JavaScript, screen resolution and cookie settings.

Please note: Westpac will not compromise privacy or retain any record of your data during the system check.
