I'm one of the ones who did stay away from it, partly as no system is 100% foolproof, and partly as I try to maintain a small online footprint

here too .... never used online banking and wont be.

 

I did notice in the usual spam this week an increase in emails purporting to be from certain banks (which I dont use anyway) .. all comes in the junk folder though ... so never touch it.

I'm not in the UK, obviously, but I do bank online. I use Linux but no system is completely safe.
