Security at home and online

Follow these financial security tips:

  • Shred old and unnecessary financial documents.
  • Don’t send personal financial info via email.
  • Use only one low-limit credit card for all online purchases.
  • After a Web transaction, close down your browser ASAP.
  • Turn off your computer when not using it, vs. “sleep” mode.
  • Regularly update your firewall, virus protection & spyware.
  • Never click on email hyperlinks from sources you don’t know.

Note: To maximize Web transaction safety, use a recent version of your Web browser. Web addresses starting with “https” and Web pages with a padlock symbol in the lower right corner are safest.
