Notice of Internet Safety Tips


As with any financial transaction, please exercise discretion when using the Internet. For your own safety, be careful. The following suggestions may be helpful:

  • Install the most recent security updates for your operating system & firewall software.
  • Install the newest version & security updates for your Internet browser.
  • Install a trustworthy security software that detects viruses, spyware, trojans, worms, bots, rootkits, etc. and keep it updated.
  • Use caution when receiving unsolicited or urgent sounding email notices. Many are fraudulent or scams.
  • Use trustworthy sites or businesses when using your credit or debit card online.
  • Avoid “Free” offers that require a credit or debit card. Many enroll you into clubs that charge your card service fees.
  • Use caution using personal and private information on public or social web sites.
  • Use hard to guess or cryptic passwords and change them often.
  • Never provide your debit card PIN on a web site or over the phone. Your PIN will never be used to identify you or authorize a purchase in this way.
  • Use caution if you receive an email or text message about your credit or debit card. Many are scams. If in doubt, call your card issuer directly.
  • Always be careful & use common sense.
