Simple Steps to Safely Bank Online
Keep Your Password to Yourself
Never give out your username or password. Not even to your bank. And especially not by email. Your bank already has it and only a few employees will have access to it. If you need to address this issue with your bank, stop by a local branch or call them at an official number. Stay away from supplying any contact information that is requested in a solicitous email that could have been sent by an imposter.
Keep Your Anti-Virus Software Up-to-Date
Make sure that any computer you regularly access your accounts from has up-to-date anti-virus software. You should also make sure that the machine is running an up-to-date browser that can support the standard 128-bit encryption used by most secure websites. When you are finished accessing your accounts, be sure to log out and even clear the auto-complete bar. If your username remains, it's possible for someone to guess your password.
Use Different Passwords for Different Accounts
Choose a good password and don't use it for multiple accounts. If a hacker, worm, or virus breaches your computer and finds a password, they will try that same password in all of your cached login areas. Try incorporating numbers, letters, and punctuation, as well as capital and lowercase letters. Birthdays, pet names, and nicknames tend to be the easiest to guess.
Don't Fall Victim to "Click-Bait" Emails
Never trust any email that links directly to your login page. This is the number one trick for hackers to "cloak" or "phish" you out of your own private information. Even though the site looks like your bank's website, it may not be. Always go directly to your bank's URL and log in from there.
