I'm just resetting my bank password (thanks to having to use a different system than usual, I can never remember it after changing it).

I almost thought it was possible to do so using only publicly available information and with no security check, but they do at least give you an automated phone call and code, so (as well as knowing my account number, sort code and date of birth) you'd also have to have access to my phone at the time. Still doesn't seem all that secure, though...

For some reason, when it asks you which number you want to be called on, the numbers are partly masked. (Why? If somebody has got that far, or is looking over your shoulder, they've already seen more sensitive information than the phone numbers). I haven't entered a home or work number, which leads to an unfortunate unintended result:

Home: No N***er
Work: No N***er
