ING Direct Introduces User-Friendly Login Names

This is just a quick note to let you guys know that ING Direct, which is the top online bank amongst FiveCentNickel readers, has rolled out a new feature to making logging into your account even easier.

Instead of having to use a clumsy, eight digit customer number, you can now create a custom “Saver ID.” Honestly, I’m not sure how long this option has been around, but I didn’t notice it until about a week ago.

Here’s the scoop…

Trouble remembering your Customer Number? You now have the option of creating you own easy-to-remember username to login, known as a “Saver ID.” Then, you can use either your Saver ID or Customer Number to login.

To create your own Saver ID, login and click the ‘My Info’ tab.

So there you have it… ING Direct just got even easier to use.

    Usernames have been around since sometime last year.

    One nice security feature that ING has that I have not seen elsewhere is that you enter your 4-digit PIN (yeah I know, how secure is that?) on a screen keypad. The keypad associates a letter to each digit. This letter changes each time you try to login, so it is impossible to guess.

    This is awesome! I had always only used Yodlee MoneyCenter auto-login to access ING Direct because it was such a pain to dig out the customer number.

    Thanks for informing those of us who weren’t aware.

    I had no idea this feature was even there. Awesome! I never bothered to memorize my number though because I would just go into Gmail and search for that email.

    Hmm…I’ve used this option ever since the first day I opened the account, which was quite awhile back. I have a habit of going through all the settings of any account I have so that’s how I found this.

    Have people really been memorizing their account numbers?! I feel bad…I should’ve said something earlier!

    I don’t remember when this came out, but I was very excited. There are so many numbers I try to remember in everyday life. Instead I just used the SN I had used before in banking.

    Well, congratulations Ing! Welcome to 2003 ;). No one likes to sign in to things with their account numbers. it’s such a pain to remember.

    Ah well, better late than never is what I always say.

    I also opened my account at the beginnning of Feb, and it wasn’t an option then. It was one of the things, if not the only thing, I complained about when asked about the sign up process.

    This is wonderful news. We have an ING account for our daughter that we put spare change, birthday money, etc. in. This will definitely make it easier to make deposits.
