As part of its Financial Education Project, the Portuguese Banking Association will launch, from September, a Digital Literacy Programme under the theme “Everything you need to know about online banking”.

Learn how to make a transfer or payment online, consult your banking account through your laptop, PC or mobile phone, take out a credit or make an investment in just one click. Learn also about the precautions you should take to avoid being a victim of fraud when using online banking.

These information sessions are free of charge and open to the general public, essentially targeting the more senior population not yet familiar with the use of online banking, either via computer or mobile phone.

The programme will consist of 12 monthly information sessions that will run from September 2021 to July 2022 (see programme). These sessions will be promoted by representatives of the APB member banks and will initially take place online.

With this initiative, the APB and its member banks aim to promote a set of basic digital skills from the user's point of view, foster capacity building in the use of digital channels among the target population, raise awareness to the importance of adopting better informed and safer financial behaviours and contribute to increasing the levels of digital and financial literacy in Portugal.

In parallel, the Portuguese Banking Association will develop a set of 12 videos (on the themes of each session) that will work as tutorials and audio-visual support for the information sessions.
