Find out what you can do to help protect your information.

The Internet has made it easier than ever to bank, shop, communicate and gather information. Unfortunately, it has also made it easier for criminals to gain access to your personal and financial information.

We’re doing everything that we can to make sure your information doesn’t fall into the wrong hands, but there are also some simple things you can do to help.

  • Protect your computer with anti-virus software and update it regularly
  • Never share your passwords or PINs with anyone, and never write them down
  • Avoid obvious passwords or PINs, such as zip code or year of birth, and never use personal information like your Social Security number
  • Change your password regularly

Here are some other things you can do:

Use a UPIC
Safeguard your company’s sensitive account information by using a dummy account number known as a universal payment identification code (UPIC) to receive ACH payments.

Increase Your Online Banking Security Measures

Browse the Internet with Care
You can surf the web confidently when you keep these tips in mind.

  • Review websites’ security and privacy policies before entering personal data
  • Make sure your web browser and anti-virus software are up to date
  • Don’t download anything from unfamiliar sites
  • If you enter any personal information on a public computer, always clear its cache memory
