Benefits of Online Banking with Clark County Credit Union
Signing up for online banking can make managing your finances quicker and easier. You can perform a variety of tasks online, such as checking your bank balance, transferring funds, ordering checks and more. You can also sign up to receive your banking statements online, which not only saves you time, but is environmentally friendly. The online experience allows you to utilize your account to its full capacity without having to physically visit a branch.
Online Banking Safety Features
You'll find many safety features with our online banking portal will help to protect you from unauthorized account access, fraud and identity theft. One feature you can receive with online banking is two-step authentication. This will require you or anyone else who wants to access your account, to perform two processes that prove you are the legitimate account holder.
Online banking programs use encryption systems to prevent your personal information from being shared while you are online. Fraud alerts are another feature you will receive if you sign up for online services. The advanced system can notify you by text message or phone call if a suspicious charge is noticed on your account. You can then take steps to verify if you recognize the transaction or refuse to process it if you do not.
Best Safety Practices for Online Banking
You should also exercise other safety practices while using online banking. First, you should never share your username or password with anyone, not even a family member. Secondly, change your password at least once every three months. You should also log out of online platforms each time you use it and close your web browser every time, as well. Thirdly, never click on a link in an email that claims your account is in jeopardy and asks for information.
Your bank will never send you an email like this, and it will never ask you to log into your online account from a random link. Hackers use that method to retrieve information from account-holders. It's called phishing, and it's a new method of fraud.
Follow the tips above, and you can enjoy all the features and benefits of online banking to the fullest. Your provider's priority is to make banking safe and convenient for you.
