So why isn't it called "sign in"?

So why not "transfer"?

Might be for telephone banking, but they always ask for other stuff.

Because you are being asked to identify yourself.

You are signing the transaction.
Wy are you obsessing about this? The onscreen instructions tell you what to do.

Because it is confirming your identity (by possession of the card and pin) - you may need to do that for something without signing in.

Probably from signing cheques and you are "signing" the payment. Anyway, while you could be transferring money between your own accounts, you could also be paying for something, as distint from a transfer.

No idea.

Challenge response. My bank (NatWest) uses it if I want to make a change to a standing order, or add a payee.
I am given a string of digits from the website. I insert my card, press Respond and enter my PIN. I also enter those digits. I am given another set of digits as a response to type back in.
I probably do it about once a month.

On the Lloyds' card device I use - you insert your card, press identify and then enter your 4 digit PIN. An 8 digit number will appear in the window whci you then type into your PC.

I thought there was something odd there but that's a bit better but still not quite right.
You first press 'Identify' and type in your PIN.
Don't worry, though, you'll be given full details every time you use it so you won't have to remember anything - except your PIN, of course.

You may be thinking of the procedure if you do on-line banking as opposed to just confirming your identity without O_LB, but I'm pretty ignorant of these things. Like I said, a dinosaur!
