    I had to fill in a form for online banking.
    After the phone # it asked for my "phone nickname."
    It was a required field and I couldn't submit the form without it.
    What the heck is this?

    It's asking you for a name you'll use to identify that phone later, I'm guessing for log-in using a multi-factor authentication token on the device?

    I'd go for "Bugsy" or maybe "Universal Tracking Device", whatever floats your corn flakes.

    It's like a CB radio handle. "Breaker one-nine. This here's the Rubber Duck." That's how I answer the phone.

    Nope never heard of it,it’s a trick, possibly one of those robots we hear about

    I got pretty creative naming my two phones. One's called Landline; the other I call Cell.
