Take steps to avoid fraud
Protect Your Financial Information
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.
*The most accurate record of your account balance is your own transaction register. Any balance information provided by Bank of the West, whether in a document, online, by telephone, or in person, will not reflect un-posted transactions.
