Please do not bookmark the "Sign In" page as the location could change. Instead, bookmark and follow the "Sign In" link.

Information Security

RBC Royal Bank Financial Group members have gone to great lengths to ensure your confidentiality and security. We use several layers of robust security methods including encryption, firewalls and timed log-outs among others to ensure the confidentiality of your personal and financial information.

Here are some additional steps that you as a user can take to ensure that you are safeguarding your information:

  • Never share your Online Banking password with anyone.
  • If you are using Internet Explorer 5+, ensure that the "memorize password function" or "auto-complete" is disabled. For information on how to disable this function please see below.
  • Never walk away from your computer without properly signing out from Online Banking and closing your browser.
  • If you are using a computer other than your own, always end your banking session and close the browser.

For more information on security please visit our Security site.

Disabling Memorized Password Function or Auto-Complete

If your client card number automatically appears on the "Sign In" page, we recommend that you disable the auto complete function to protect your information.

In Internet Explorer 5 or higher:

  • Select "Tools" from the menu bar
  • Select "Internet Options" and then "Content tab"
  • Select "Auto complete" and remove the checkmarks from the "User names and passwords" section
  • Select "Clear forms" and then "Clear passwords"

Common Sign In Error Messages

Error Message: "Page Cannot Be Displayed" (IE)

Is the Sign In page bookmarked?
From time to time it is necessary to change the location of the Sign In page. If this is done, your bookmark will not function properly. This bookmark will override anything you try within the site. Even if you click Sign In and do not use the bookmark, you could still encounter problems. The best thing to do is remove the bookmark entirely and then sign in.

Are you connecting from a network or from work?
Permissions for a network are set by your network administrator, which may not allow you to connect to secure sites. You will not be able to sign in if this is the case. Please contact your network administrator.

The encryption level of your browser may not be adequate for Online Banking.
The encryption within your browser may have been deactivated or may be inadequate. The easiest way to verify your encryption level is to complete the browser test located in our security section.

Error Message: "We are having trouble identifying you..."

Have you ever viewed your accounts Online before?

  • If not, you'll need to enrol in Online Banking. Follow the "Enrol Now" link to get your temporary password.

Are you using the correct client card?

  • Some clients will mistakenly use a family member's client card number. A family member's client card will have a unique password and number, to be used by that family member.

Did you forget your Password?

  • In order to protect our customers' account security, access to Online Banking will be automatically blocked once multiple attempts to log in are made with an incorrect password.
  • If you forget your password, or inadvertently have your access to Online Banking blocked, please click the "Forgot Password" link on the Sign In to Online Banking page at and follow the steps to create a new Online Banking password.

Still unable to sign in after using “Forgot Password”?
