The receivers can retrieve money by presenting the codes at the branch or from the KTB ATM without the need of bank account, or by choosing for the money to be transferred to the wallet on the application. Moreover, customers can be ensured of the KTB netbank service security from the use of the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) code, which will notify user via SMS every time the account is logged-in or when there is a movement in the account, as well as the Time Out Password (TOP) that will notify the account holder with details of all transactions.
