• Periodically sign in to Digital Banking to review your contact information and update when necessary so that we can always contact you quickly in the event that we see suspicious activity on your account.
CREATE STRONG PASSWORDS
• A strong password means a strong defense against hackers. When creating your passwords, go for length, complexity, and memorability. A strong password should be at least eight to 10 characters and based on something you can remember but that would be difficult for a hacker to guess. Start with a sentence and transform it to a code, such as “I love ice skating” transformed to “EYElvEYEsk8tng.”
PROTECT YOUR DEVICES
• Keeping your phone, tablet, and computer up to date with the latest browsers and operating systems helps protect against vulnerabilities that criminals can exploit.
ENABLE BIOMETRICS (fingerprint sign-on or facial recognition)
• Biometrics are an extra level of security to prevent someone from gaining access to your pin and impersonating you online.
