Protect Your Financial Information

Don't let fraudsters steal your personal information. Taking proper precautions with your banking transactions can help you avoid becoming a victim of fraud, giving you more control over what happens with your credit rating.

So what steps can you take to protect your information?

  • Set up email and mobile alerts to notify you when your account balance* is low, warning you of a potential threat.
  • Sign up for Online Statements to help reduce your risk of account take-over or identity theft.
  • Make sure that your antivirus software is up to date and that your browser and system software have the latest updates available.

The Security Center also has more information about fraud, along with additional ways you can help protect yourself.
