Purpose – The purpose of this research paper is to explore and mature the Impact of selected factors on the customers’ intention to use internet banking in Bahrain.

Design/methodology/approach – This research based on an empirical study using a questionnaire with five-point Likert-scale, is applied to 171 usable responses. Three factors are tested, that is perceived usefulness (PU), perceived ease of use (PEOU), security and privacy (PC).

Findings – Results indicate that all the elements for the three identified factors are important with respect to the users’ adoption of e-banking services. Credibility factors (Security and Privacy) are the major sources of dissatisfaction, which have remarkably impacted users’ satisfaction. In the meantime, perceived ease of use (PEOU) and perceived usefulness (PU) are sources of satisfaction. The results also disclose that security and privacy factors play an important part in determining the users’ acceptance of e-banking services with respect to different segmentation of age group, income level and level of education.
