The method for authenticating an account transaction includes associating an account with a device; creating a confirmation message on the device for a transaction; and authenticating the transaction if a confirmation message is received from the device. The method may use an authenticating device in the form of a personal computer connected to a communications network, a mobile telephone, a wireless personal digital assistant, and may also include a biometric device.
