NewsMaybank will replace TAC codes with Secure2u starting 15 March

Maybank says that it will no longer be generating the SMS TAC code for users to approve selected online transactions on Maybank2u. Maybank will be enforcing Secure2u as the preferred authorisation method.

You might be wondering, why did Maybank enforced this method of authorising payments. Secure2u pairs your device with your Maybank2u User ID. This gives you an extra level of security, as all transactions initiated can only be authorised on your registered device.

Depending on the transaction type, users can easily generate a 6-digit Secure TAC from your Maybank app to approve or decline transactions. Alternatively, with Secure2u, you need not have to wait for SMS TAC anymore.

For those who have already registered for Secure2u, the service will be the default method for all transactions starting 15 March.
