Hello friends, This is with regard to HSBCs Internet Banking. I reside in Hyderabd and have been a customer of this bank for more than 5 years.I hold a regular savings account and also possess a credit card of our reviewers recommend us. I requested for Internet banking and was given a password. But as I forgot my password I requested for another which was supplied to me in due course of time. For personal of our reviewers recommend us reasons I could not use internet Banking for quite some time. Since last year I have been trying to activate my Internet Banking account using my old user id(that I got from a phone banking officer) but havent met with success. Repeated calls to the phone banking officers have proved futile. In fact I wasnt told as to when I would be able to use my user id as in between the banks site was under maintenance and the phone banking officers had no clue as to when /why I wasnt able to use my userid. Only when the computer accepts my user id will I be able to log in using the password given by them. Though this matter has been brought to the notice of the bank people in Hyderabad, they simply passed the buck to their software department which hasnt till date rectified the matter. I am just not a happy customer though have remained one. I would advice all those who are planning to open an account in HSBC to carefully make sure that when they opt for internet banking they make sure it really works right in the presence of their officers. The mantra of banking through the net is being actively preached by many banks of our reviewers recommend us, but I fail to understand if banks such as HSBC do not address the grievances of their public with regard to internet banking how will their customers do so?
