Like the other transaction procedures, the eTAN procedure is intended to make transactions more secure against phishing.

The different TAN procedures

The different TAN procedures

The eTAN is generated electronically by a TAN generator. This is a small TAN computer with a display that generates a transaction number (TAN) before each transaction and shows it on the display. However, a control number must be entered before the transaction number is generated. A similar procedure is used with the Bankey technology, in which the Bankey token generates a transaction number for the next transaction at the push of a button.
