Secure Online Banking

Bank safely online.

By employing just a few basic best practices, you can stand in the way of online threats, protecting your money and your identity.

 

 

Secure Online Banking

Secure Online Banking

  • When you travel the Internet to access online banking, you want to be assured, first and foremost, that effective safeguards are in place to make your visit safe, secure, and reliable. When you use online banking to visit your bank, whether it’s to learn about rates, to review your accounts or to pay your bills, you are entering a secure area. Measures they take include one or more of the following: 
  • Password Protection & Pin 
    Your password and PIN (personal identification number) are the first line of defense, and are your unique identifier. Be sure not to share them with anyone-most frauds involving hijacked accounts originate with someone the victim knows. 
  • Multi-Factor Authentication 
    This form of identity verification provides added security by requiring multiple forms of identification, such as something you know (password or PIN) and something you have (ATM card, smart card). 
  • Encryption 
    Once online with your bank, your transactions and personal information are secured by encryption software that converts the information into code that is readable by only you and your bank. 
  • Privacy Policies 
    Bank privacy policies protecting your personal information are stringent. Your confidential information is treated with the utmost care, meeting or exceeding federal and state mandates.  
  • View the bank’s Privacy Policy. 

 

 

Using Online Banking

Using Online Banking

  • Security begins with a strong password, which only you, the user, knows. Experts advise a combination of letters and numbers, and advise against using easily guessed passwords such as birthdays or home addresses
  • Make sure the anti-virus software on your computer is current and scans your email as it is received. This simple step is critical to your personal safety and security when online.
  • Email is generally not encrypted so be wary of sending any sensitive information such as account numbers or other personal information in this way. If you receive an unscheduled or unsolicited email purporting to be from your bank be cautious-take the time to call your bank and make sure the email was sent from your banker. 
  • Always log off by following the bank’s secured area exit procedures to ensure the protection of your personal information.
  • Crooks are trying to get your personal information-and they employ some ingenious methods. Don’t respond to any unusual requests for personal information-when you opened your bank accounts you already gave it. When in doubt, call your bank.
