I'm on 'Step 1 – Installing ANZ Shield'. What happens if I press the 'Return to previous page' button?

This button will return you to the 'Profile' menu in ANZ Internet Banking.

Can I register for ANZ Shield on the same device that I'm using for ANZ Internet Banking?

When you first register for ANZ Shield, you will need to have ANZ Shield downloaded onto a device other than where you are running ANZ Internet Banking. For example, if you have downloaded ANZ Shield to your phone, you should use your tablet or computer to run your ANZ Internet Banking session.

How do I turn on push notifications?

This varies by device and operating system. If you need help to switch on push notifications, you should refer to the user guide for your phone or tablet. Depending on your phone settings, you may receive a pop-up message when you first open ANZ Shield asking you allow push notifications. If this happens, you should click ok/allow.
