Tips for Safe Online & Mobile Banking
We invest in technology and processes to secure the electronic environment for all of your financial transactions, data transmissions, and communications. However, online security and protection of your identity and personal information is a team effort. That’s why we recommend you take steps to shield yourself and your computer from attempts to obtain your personal information electronically:
- Do not share your user ID or password with anyone.
- Do not send or receive personal or account information by unsecure or unencrypted email.
- Use Online Banking to check your account balance and transactions regularly. Notify us immediately of unexpected account activity. Set account alerts when using Online Banking. For more information on account alerts please click here.
- Never respond to, click any link in, or open an attachment in an email that requests information about you or your accounts. Union Bank never makes such requests. If you accidentally click or respond to such requests, contact us immediately.
