If you are looking for guidance on how to register or activate your Maybank2U account, chances are that you have already created an account and retrieved your Maybank debit or credit cards.
If you haven’t, well, you should! After all, without opening a bank account and getting your debit / credit card, you will not be able to register on the bank’s online interface.
Step 1: Visit Maybank2U.com
Step 2: Click on ‘Open Account’ at the bottom of the screen.
You will be brought to the screen shown above. Just select the fields that are the most relevant to you. In this example, we will be using the default fields give, which shows that the user is a student looking to open a savings account.
Once you are done with your selection, click ‘discover’ to see the bank account types that will suit your needs.
Step 3: View and compare your choices
The next screen that comes up after you click on ‘Discover’ will show you the types of accounts that you can apply for. Scroll downwards and you will see more information.
Step 4: Click on ‘Discover’ for any account types that you may be interested in.
Yes, just click on ‘discover’ under the images of the account types to find more information for the bank. Let’s take the first account choice, Kawanku Savings Account as our example.
Step 5: Note the requirements to open this account.
In the example account that we chose, the Kawanku Savings Account, the initial deposit is either RM50 or RM250, depending on whether or not you have a letter of employment. Keep scrolling down and reading to find more information about this account.
When you scroll downwards, you will find the ‘How to Apply’ section. As it is with other Maybank accounts, you only need to bring either your identity card or your passport to open this account. Of course, you will also need the initial deposit amount stated in the account information page to get started.
Step 6: Visit your nearest Maybank branch and follow the staff’s instructions to get your Maybank account set up!

- E-mail – Which email do you want to receive your online bank statements on? Enter your e-mail address here – preferably, one that also has a strong password protection as well!

You will be asked to choose your own security image. There will be a few basic ones to choose from, and you can even personalize your own security image later on once you have created your account.Meanwhile, choose a picture that you will remember, and if prompted, enter the word for the image. As an example, in the screenshot above, the user is prompted to key in the word ‘fish’ for the corresponding image.
- Choose 3 security questions and key in the answers.
There won’t be many questions to choose from, but you can choose any questions that are more relevant to you. Make sure that these questions are the ones that you can answer accurately.Most of the questions given will be something like ‘In which city did you meet your spouse?’ or ‘Where did you go to the first time you were on the plane?’. These questions should have answers memorable to you alone, so there shouldn’t be much of an issue for this.
