North Star has been operating with a Swiss license and is governed by the same laws and regulations as any other bank or finance company. This means that your funds are protected up to €100,000 by the Swiss Deposit Protection Scheme—and that your money and North Star account are secure. Below, learn more about the additional security settings and measures that keep your finances safe.

3D Secure technology

Benefit from extra security against fraud, thanks to advanced 3D Secure (3DS)—an additional authentication step that protects your online purchases.


Log in within seconds using a secure password—or via fingerprint identification and face recognition—and manage your bank account on-the-go.

Instant push notifications

With real-time push notifications on all account activity, stay up-to-date with all your incoming and outgoing payments, and always know what’s happening with your account.

What is phishing?

Phishing is when someone attempts to get your password or login details through deceptive emails, text messages or fake websites. To protect yourself from online fraud, avoid clicking on links in emails or text messages that seem suspicious. We will never ask you for your password or PIN—if you’re ever in doubt, contact our North Star Support team before you proceed.
