Safeguard your information
Help prevent fraudsters from accessing your information by taking some simple steps.
What can you do?
Taking steps to ensure the security of your information can help go a long way in the fight against fraud:
- Keep personal or account info in a safe place
- Check your credit report for discrepancies. You get one free report a year from each of the credit reporting agencies (Equifax, Experian, & TransUnion)
- Create a strong password using the 4 character groups: lower & upper case letters, numbers and special characters
- Install firewall, anti-virus and anti-spyware on your home computer
- Set up Account Alerts to receive notices based on events you choose, such as when your account falls below a certain amount
- Sign up for eStatements. Using online eStatements can prevent mailbox theft. You'll also get your statements faster online, so if something is amiss, you'll be alerted sooner.
We also recommend using the following supported browsers when accessing Online Banking:
- Google Chrome
- Safari (version 9.0 or above)
- Internet Explorer (version 11.0 or above)
- Mozilla Firefox
- Microsoft Edge
