The SecurePlus token is your personal security device that enables you to generate a One-time Password (OTP) for internet (UOB Personal Internet Banking) and mobile (UOB Mobile) banking transactions. It comes with a security feature called Transaction Signing which uses transaction-specific information to generate an OTP. Transaction Signing offers added security capabilities for your online transactions.
