Online Security

Learn how to help protect your online account against fraud.

Protect your online account

  • Tip 1

    Fake, “phishing” emails appear to be from financial institutions and copy logos and links to scare you into relinquishing information. Take time to examine them; verify they are real by contacting the company—but not with contact information provided, as this could also be fake.

  • Tip 2

    Create a strong password with a combination of at least 8 letters, numbers and symbols. Never share your password with anyone, and do not write it down and carry it in your wallet.

  • Tip 3

    Make your password easy to remember and hard to guess. For example, turn your dogs’ names, Spot and Rover, into "Sp0t&R0v3r," or try something like, "I<3mdS&R" ("I love my dogs Spot and Rover").
