As far as security, online and mobile banking offer very secure platforms to do your banking. As online and mobile banking continue to mature, so do the security measures. However, there are some security measures that you can take to even further protect your online and mobile banking accounts:

  • Create a username/login and password for your online bank account that are easy for you to remember, but would be hard for others to understand. The use of capital letters, symbols (&,$,#, etc), numbers and phrases tend to increase the strength of your username and password.
  • Set up a password or pin to unlock your cell phone or computer.

  • Research any app before downloading it.
