Tips for Using Online Banking Safely

Whether you’re new to online banking or you’ve been using it for years, it’s important to take steps to make sure all of your online information is secure.

Here’s how:

  1. Ask your bank how they monitor fraud, if they use anti-virus protection on bank computers, have firewalls in place, and use website encryption.
  2. Beware of scams asking for your online banking login information. Always do your research before allowing anyone to have your login credentials or bank account numbers.
  3. Avoid using public Wi-Fi for your private banking. This makes you more susceptible to hackers.
  4. Change your passwords regularly, and make sure they are strong.
  5. Keep your computer or mobile device’s antivirus software current.
