How can I login?
Through our website www.bankofchina.com/uk click the button ‘Personal Internet Banking’ to access the Personal Internet Banking page.
Before you reach the login page, you will be advised that you are leaving the Bank of China (UK) Limited website and are being redirected to the Bank of China Limited site, which you will need to click the button under ‘I have read and understood’ declaration to confirm you are in agreement with.
User ID & Password
At the login page, the system will ask you to enter your User ID, password, a one-time E-Token password and Verification Code to access the service.
Your initial User ID and password are sealed inside the PIN envelope.
When you log in for the first time, the system will ask you to change your username and password. If you have forgotten your password, please contact our branch as soon as possible.
E-Token enhances our Internet Banking security, because of the time-sensitive, synchronised nature of the authentication. Every 60 seconds, an E-Token produces a unique 6-digit code, also known as a one-time password, which is displayed on a small screen on the E-Token. You need to use it within its life span for your login to the Personal Internet Banking Service. The randomness, unpredictability, and uniqueness of the one-time passwords substantially increase the difficulty for someone to capture and use it to compromise your account. E-Tokens generally last 3 to 4 years before they need to be replaced. A fee of £6 will apply for each E-Token replacement.

When I use Internet Banking, why does it sometimes prompt ‘dialog failure’?
In such case, you should resume access to the Internet and login to the Personal Internet Banking in the normal way and check the balance or transaction records of your account through ‘Accounts Overview’ and ‘Transaction Records’ in ‘My Accounts’, and determine whether or not any transactions you were requesting have been successfully fulfilled. If the transaction has been successfully completed, you need not to take any further action. If the transaction has not been completed, you should restart or cancel the transaction.
After logging to Internet Banking, if you leave it unattended for a long time, the system will prompt ‘dialog failure’ and log off automatically. If you still want to use the system, please login again. Such design is to prevent your account from being maliciously operated if you leave your computer unattended and forget to exit Internet Banking.
The information displayed on the ‘Help’ pages does not seem to always apply to me.
The Bank of China (UK) Limited Internet Banking Service is hosted by Bank of China Limited and some of the information displayed may be for the attention of customers in China.
What should I do if my computer suddenly crashes or the network connection is suddenly cut off in course of transaction?
