Bancopopolare and certificate of Home Banking (Byweb) on Mac (Safari)

The banks of the Banco Popolare Group, at least the Banca Popolare di Novara, need to use the service Byweb, or the Home Banking, the installation of a certificate (.p12 format).

No problem for users on Windows with Internet Explorer and / or Firefox nor for Linux and Mac users who wish to use Firefox (which includes the installation of the certificate directly into the browser) ... some more problems for Mac users who wish to use Safari.

No alarm, with the correct configuration in a few minutes will be around the problem by following the steps listed here:

  • Download the certificate to your desktop from https://certificato.bancopopolare.it/ in a folder to your liking
  • Fully close Safari (Command + Q)
  • Open the file with the application of the system Keychain (just double click the mouse on the downloaded file and it will open automatically)
  • Enter the password for certificate authentication (the same that is used to download the same)
  • Select the certificate in Keychain and click on the top to the voice Archive (here in the image file), and then click the submenu Preference new identity ... (in English here New Identity Preference)
  • Enter the link https://web.bancopopolare.it:443 (important to write it correctly as shown here) and click on Add
  • Open Safari and go to the address https://web.bancopopolare.it:443

I leave you to the images to understand even better (and visually) the procedure described above ...

Happy surfing to all!

Ps if you were still having problems, try to add even https://web.bancopopolare.it:443/ (including /) final!

PPS: If you fail again ... trust in Firefox that independently manages certificates.
In this case just open the Firefox Preferences and go to Advanced, and then select Show in the Encryption Certificate and then import the certificate downloaded.

    Hello Max, by chance you were able to make it work on mobile Safari on the iPhone? The certificates can be installed by sending them via e-mail, but then connecting to https://web.bancopopolare.it:443 just gives you access denied (on iPhone obviously missing the passage "Preference new identity" keychain, I fear it is the one ).

    Sorry, but the iPhone still nothing ... although I must alert you that these days has started the new service Services By (Byweb for example) that allows you to not use the certifed by resorting to the use of a stick, which can be requested at the branch ( working on it I can tell you that the game is just this week the initiative). The one-time cost issue (the cost of the key) is 15 euro.
    The key, in the form of credit card (but far thinner), generates a code OTP (One Time Password) which is inserted during the log-in!
    I think that will be the only way to access via iPhone ...
