OTP or One-time password does a great job in keeping our bank account safe. Whenever we try to do a transaction or major change to our profile. The bank sends us this code number via SMS to our registered mobile number. This is very common. But in this guide, I will tell you how you can receive South Indian Bank OTP via Email.
Usually, the banks do not send the OTP via email. Because the chances of the email address being compromised are considerably high when compared to that of the mobile number. So some banks send an Email notification that the OTP has been sent to the mobile number.
But those emails don’t contain any kind of OTP. You can have a look at the above screenshot. Also keep in mind that the bank will never send you an email or SMS asking for details like your username, password, PIN number, and OTP, etc. If you ever receive such calls, emails, or SMSes. Then you should not reply.
