  • The beneficiary’s bank’s correspondent account number in the Settlement Board of the Russian Central Bank (20 characters) (the account number stars with figure 3, in individual cases might be absent, inserted in the beneficiary’s bank’s box following the BIK code);
  • Payment purpose – currency operation (CO) code (5 characters) must be provided; the client chooses it based on what is paid for from the code table: CO codes. If the transfer is made from Lithuania, the payer is Always non-resident. If it is an advance payment for goods, column 10 shall be selected, if it is final payment for goods – the code (CO13010). Where the payment is made for services, column 20 shall be selected.

You can cancel the payments in the "List of payments" section of the Internet Bank. In the " List of payments" you will find payment orders that you submitted after the established bank hours or on bank non-business days, if such payments were not sent from the bank.

Note: in certain cases (if technically possible) payment orders to transfer funds to other banks submitted on bank business days within 30 minutes after the established bank hours may be sent to the beneficiary's bank on the same bank business day.

If you do not find the payment you want to cancel in the "List of payments", then you need to send the message "Payment order cancellation" in the Internet Bank. In this case, the cancellation of the payment will be subject to a commission fee according to the applicable bank service and transaction fees, regardless of whether the funds will be refunded.

If the funds are credited to the beneficiary's account or the payment is sent from the bank, then the funds can be returned to the payer only with the consent of the beneficiary.

Important

Please be accurate when providing the beneficiary‘s account number so as to make sure that money will receive the desired beneficiary’s account.

Monetary funds received from abroad to the beneficiary’s account with Swedbank, AB are credited to the account only according to the beneficiary’s account number in IBAN format, i.e. the Bank does not verify, whether the account specified in the payment belongs to the beneficiary of the funds; for this reason, if a wrong account number is provided, money might be credited to another client’s account regardless of the specified beneficiary’s name, surname (company name).

Secure your login data

  • You shouldn’t confirm transactions or logins to internet bank or app, which are not initiated by you under no circumstances.
  • You shouldn’t ever disclose your personal data or data used for login to internet bank & app to other persons, including family members, friends or bank employees, unless you are calling to the bank.
  • Do not write down, send by e-mail, SMS, etc. or otherwise save any confidential codes and passwords to unlock the screen of your computer or mobile phone. Create complex passwords, that are difficult to guess, memorise them and change them regularly. When creating PIN codes, be sure to make PIN codes in random number combination. Do not use combinations, such as 1111, 1234, dates of birth other personal details etc.
  • Remember that your User ID number is as important as your personal code, thus pay a great deal of attention to its security.
  • Keep in mind that after login you will have access to many services including external ones which do not require additional authentication.

Closing browsing session

The login session is terminated when no activity happens for 5 minutes. You will be asked to re-enter your login details. Time limits are used for security reasons, to prevent Internet Bank access if a user forgets to log off from his/her account after finishing using the Internet Bank.

On the smart device:

Before entering your login data, make sure that the website domain is “swedbank.lt”.

Take a moment to familiarise with our security recommendations:

  • Do not share your personal authentication means. If you want to give your family members or your employees rights to manage funds on your accounts, please, request the Bank to grant them respective rights. They will be able to use company’s accounts on behalf of their own and by using their own personal authentication means. You can revoke these rights at any time. It is also possible to order a supplementary card linked to your account for a family member to use.. Sharing the same authentication mean between the employees or family members is strictly forbidden.
  • Remember, that security of all your data (User ID, PIN codes, mobile phone number provided to the bank, personal number, etc.) is the key for protecting an access to your money.
  • If you’re using a public computer, avoid entering personal information as there might be malware that records your details.
  • Do not keep User ID number together with authentication means and their confidential codes.
  • Never send authentication data by email.
  • Never disclose your login information, unless you are initiating the call with the bank. No one has the right to request you to provide your personal number and authentication mean by phone. If you receive a call from a person stating he is an employee of the bank, end the conversation immediately.
  • Your Smart-ID or PIN code generator PINs should not coincide with any part of your phone number or the sequence of numbers.
  • Always compare control number and read “see what you sign” if available.
  • By entering PIN2 of Smart-ID you are usually confirming a payment or an agreement. Be extra careful when doing it.
  • You will get an SMS when new Smart ID account is created. Contact bank immediately if it wasn’t you who created Smart ID.

When accessing internet bank via a laptop or stationary computer, follow these safety measures:

  • Install antivirus software and configure it to automatic update of the virus definitions database (at least one auto-update per day).
  • Install the local firewall. It should be configured so that it prevents connections from the Internet to your computer.
  • Use the latest browser and operating system available.
  • Turn on automatic updates for all software. If it cannot be updated automatically, regularly check on its latest software.
  • Set your browser to block pop-ups.

Check computer safety

  • More information on the ways to secure your device and to safely use other Internet services is available on the following websites:

Do not forget to follow safety measures when accessing internet bank via mobile devices:

  • Download applications only from trusted sources such as the App Store, Google Play or Windows Phone Apps – Microsoft store.
  • Do not jailbreak your mobile device to get around limitations set by your mobile network operator or device manufacturer. It will remove protections built into the device to defend against mobile threats.
  • Always screen lock your smart phone or any of your computers. If several levels of screen lock security are offered, always use the highest security level.
  • Do not allow other persons to use your phone or tablet were Swedbank App is installed.

  • Always adhere to the requirements or security alerts of the manufacturer of your phone device.

When shopping online, be prudent with your personal and financial data. Properly assess the threats, which you may encounter on the internet. We recommend to ensure protection of personal devices and always follow these safety tips:

  • Shop in reliable shops only. It is always safe to buy goods and services in well-known Lithuanian and foreign e-shops with a good reputation. Take a critical approach to unknown sellers and try to find out more information about their activity. Study public internet feedback about a specific online shop. Find out whether the website presents detailed contact data of its administrator (address, phone, email, etc.), and make sure it does not contain various errors in their links (additional words or letters, strange symbols), popup windows, advertisings, a great number of links instead of informative content.
  • Be cautious about discounts. You have found a high-quality product offered at a particularly low price? Before making a payment order, be sure that the company that offers the product really exists and is trustworthy. Be careful about advertisements in social networks. They may lead you to a fake online shop.
  • Safe shopping by card. When shopping in foreign e-shops, the most common way of payment is by card. In this case you will have to indicate the details of your payment card. If an online shop participates in international security programmes, special logos such as “MasterCard SecureCode”, and “Verified by Visa” for Visa cards are used in this shop. You may be redirected to internet bank to confirm payment transaction by logging in. Learn more about “Safe online shopping” programme here. Before making payment in online shop, please evaluate safety of such online shop and study public internet feedback about its activity.
  • Safe payment via electronic banking system. When shopping in Lithuanian online shops, usually you will be redirected to Swedbank internet bank account. You will recognise it from the Swedbank logo and internet bank address: https://www.swedbank.lt/banklink. It confirms that payment is made directly through the bank system. After you enter your login details, the website will automatically display the generated payment form.
  • Third party providers. As of 14/09/2019, when you shop online, you might be offered to use payment initiation service, offered by payment institution (PISP), other than the bank, to pay for goods or services. If you choose to initiate payment from your account, kept with the bank, you might be asked to fill in the payment order form in the PISP’s environment, and give your consent to transfer data, necessary for performance of payment transaction, and later to confirm payment order with the Swedbank internet bank authentication mean. If you have noticed any transaction in the account statement, not authorised by you, inform us immediately by calling 1884 (for private clients) or 1633 (for business clients).

Suspicious SMS messages. Stay alert!

  • Fraudsters could impersonalize bank by sending fraudulent SMS under our name to obtain personal and Authentication mean data. These messages usually offer to click on an indicated link, to open an attachment or to call the indicated phone number in order to allegedly update, revise, check or activate your account in internet bank.
  • Never answer to a SMS message requesting you to submit confidential data. Never click on the links and do not open attachments from the unknown sender because this way you can activate a virus, or you will be redirected to a fraudulent website.
  • In case you are clicked on the link and were redirected to a website resembling our site, do not enter any requested data and contact us. Here you can find the information on how you can recognise the authentic website.
  • If you suspect that other persons have gained access to your login data, contact us immediately.

Suspicious emails or calls. Be cautious!

  • If you receive a suspicious call or email from an alleged “bank employee” or “police officer” requesting you to disclose confidential login details – under no circumstances disclose such information. Do not trust this person only because he or she knows something about you. Fraudsters can have different scenarios to steal money (they request to update data; inform about suspicious bank transactions, etc.), yet they have one common feature – they request to disclose confidential internet bank login data or to enter the generated code of Authentication mean and transaction confirmation.
  • Neither bank employees nor representatives of law enforcement or other institutions contact residents requesting them to disclose their Internet Bank details (User ID, PIN codes, etc.) or initiate as well as confirm transactions not initiated by you. Therefore, stay alert and do not open suspicious emails. Make sure that you log in to the Internet Bank via the right website (https://www.swedbank.lt).

Here are some of the most common indicators that a phone call or email or SMS that you have received is most likely a scam or an attack:

  • Any message that communicates a tremendous sense of urgency. The criminals are trying to rush you into making a mistake.
  • Any message that pressures you into bypassing or ignoring our policies and procedures.
  • Any message that promotes possibilities to gain high profit. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
  • Be very suspicious of any phone call or message that pretends to be an official or government organization urging you to take immediate action.
