Simple safety steps when banking online will help protect your money and finances.

When banking on the internet follow these steps: 

  • Always access your bank's website by typing the address directly into your browser. 

  • Keep your computer up-to-date with anti-virus and firewall software and set them to update automatically. 

  • Set strong passwords and update them regularly. 

  • Do not store your password or PIN on your computer. 

  • Look for 'https://' at the beginning of the address bar and a locked padlock in the browser to indicate the web pages are secure. 

  • Always log out of the internet banking menu when you finish your banking and close the browser. 

  • Beware of any windows that 'pop up' during an internet banking session and be suspicious if they direct you to another website which requests your customer identification or password.
