Security Update: Going Online Means Staying On Your Guard

Our world becomes increasingly digital every day and, as more personal & financial information goes online, strong cybersecurity is essential. Here are some ways to stay safe:

  • Strong passwords offer better protection than PINs. You should also create different, personalized phrases for each account.
  • Take advantage of two-step account authentication when it’s available.
  • Monitor transaction activity frequently with free online banking and immediately report any discrepancies.
  • Download our free Card Guard® mobile app to set controls for when, where, and how your Visa® credit & debit cards can be used.
  • Always lock your smartphone or tablet.
  • Don’t click on unfamiliar or suspicious links/attachments, especially if you didn’t request them.
  • Limit what you share on social media.
