How to Protect Yourself in Online Banking.

Would it be safe to assume you're banking online? Whether it's for personal, small business, trading and investments. In fact, over 60 million Americans are doing it. And why not?! It's simple, efficient and easy access to statements and investment needs. The customer service is not hard to come by with online chat options too.

Even though a majority of us are banking online, how do we know if we're being safe? Or how safe the bank's website is? With that, I give you part four of “Be Smart, Secure and Safe. A Guide to Managing Your Online Privacy.”

Rather than providing original content as learnings for you on this one, I believe it's best to provide you with the right tools you need to ensure you're being safe in online banking. Please use this post as a resource to find the tools you need and pass it on to others!

The FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) has an excellent and robust brochure on tips to maintain your privacy and security while banking online. A great read, I suggest you check it out! Click here.

It's important to be informed of your bank's current privacy policy so that you're aware of how the bank is using your personal information. You can find your bank's privacy policy below. Please let me know if your bank isn't listed so I can add it! Thanks.
