What is Rapport?
Trusteer Rapport is free online fraud and identity theft protection software that helps protect your User ID, password, and other information from fraudsters. It also helps prevent malware and fraudulent websites from stealing this sensitive information.
How it Works
When you connect to the Republic Bank website, Rapport does 3 main things in the background to make it extremely difficult for criminals to target you:
- Rapport verifies that you are really connected to the bank’s genuine website as opposed to a fake website created by criminals. Although this sounds trivial, it’s not obvious that you reach a genuine website when you type your bank’s address into your web browser
- Once verification is complete, Rapport locks down communication between your computer and the bank’s website. This helps prevent criminals from hijacking your online connection with the bank
- Rapport helps protect your computer and internet connection by creating a tunnel for safer communication with Republic Bank, which helps prevent criminals from using malware to steal your log-in data and tamper with transactions
Rapport takes several additional steps in the background to further improve security. If you are interested in reading about them, please click here.
