Online Safety
Before you enter sensitive data on a Web page, ensure that:
The site uses encryption, a security measure that helps protect your data as
it traverses the Internet. Signs of encryption include a Web address with
https ("s" stands for secure) and a closed padlock beside it. (The lock might
also be in the lower right corner of the window.)
Save financial transactions for your home computer
Never pay bills, bank, shop, or do other financial business on a public
or shared computer or on devices such as laptops or mobile phones
that are on public wireless networks. The security is unreliable.
Protect Yourself from Identity Theft
•
•
•
Safe Keeping (Debit card, ATM card,
checkbook, Social Security Card, etc.)
Don’t give out personal information
Check your credit report each year
(www.annualcreditreport.com) – FREE and NO
subscriptions to purchase
•
•
•
•
Shred financial papers before throwing
them away (6% of Identity Theft is from
stolen paper documents.)
Do not respond to suspicious emails or
text messages
Maintain good financial records
Never carry your Social Security card
with you and give out this number
sparingly
Debit Card Fraud
• Protect your debit card number and
your Personal Identification
Number (PIN)
• Be aware of your surroundings
when at an ATM
• Use caution at night or in the dark
• Check the ATM for tampering or
additions that do not seem part of
the machine – these are warning
signs that something might be
wrong
• Don’t leave your receipt behind
• Check your debit card account
regularly and contact your bank if
you see any discrepancies
