1. What is Smart OTP?
BIDV Smart OTP is a authentication method installed on customer’s mobile devices to generate OTP for each transaction. OTP is encrypted with complex multi-layer protection system. Therefore, it is safer and more secure than SMS OTP and hardware Token.
2. Advantages of BIDV’s Smart OTP integrated by BIDV?
Unlike the previous Smart OTP version, from 16 August 2019, BIDV integrates Smart OTP into BIDV SmartBanking. Thus, customers only need to install and use only one app, which is BIDV SmartBanking, for conducting transaction on a mobile device.
This integration proves to have many outstanding advantages:
- Customers do not need to install or open another app during the online transaction process.
- User-friendly, safe and secure since the whole process is implemented right on BIDV SmartBanking on one mobile device only.
- No need to remember and enter OTP by hand. OTP will be displayed and filled in automatically after customer entering the valid PIN code.
- Convenient app with 3 “NO”: NO network connection required, NO roaming, NO mobile phone signal (NO waiting for SMS OTP) – useful when traveling abroad.
- Free to use and easy to activate and register within the app.

- Individual customers who are using BIDV SmartBanking and wish to transfer with limit of over VND100 million/day.
