HANDY HINTS TO KEEP YOU SAFE WHILE BANKING ONLINE
By taking some simple precautions, you can take an active role in reducing the chance of being a victim of scams. As well as following these simple tips, check with your bank to see what precautions they recommend. You might be surprised how easy it can be to improve your level of security.
BANK ON A SAFE COMPUTER
Install and regularly update anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall software on your computer. Avoid using public computers or internet cafes. You never know who could be watching and a scammer may be able to retrieve your details from the computer after you have finished using it. Always log out from your internet banking webpage when you have finished. Clear your browsing history.
PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL DETAILS
Keep your banking information private,never tell your PIN or password to anyone. Choose a secure password with both letters and numbers,avoid using any obvious giveaways such as your date of birth, part of your name, address or your pets. Change it regularly.
Do not use the same password for multiple purposes,make sure you have different passwords for accounts with different banks and the other internet sites you visit. Do not just bin personal information and bank statements destroy them first.
BE SUSPICIOUS OF EMAILS
A legitimate bank or financial institution will never email you asking you to follow a link or asking you for personal details. If you receive an email that you think may be genuine, telephone your bank or financial institution to let them know about the email and ask their advice.
If you receive a call from someone who claims to be from your bank and says your account been defrauded or they have seen a suspicious transaction, you should ask for their name and number, and say you will call them back. Check the number they give you against the number you normally contact your bank with. It could be a legitimate security check.
