With the growing use of online services, hackers have become an issue. West Suburban Bank offers convenient and user friendly online and mobile services to help minimize fraudulent activity from occurring on your WSB accounts.
Here are a few tips to help keep your accounts safe:
- Make sure to use a unique password for each site. This helps keep your other accounts safe if one of your passwords is compromised.
- When banking on a mobile device, the most important tip is to know where your mobile device is at all times. Make sure your phone locks after a certain amount of time (we recommend immediately) and create a password that only you know to get into your mobile device. If logging into your bank account using WiFi, only log in when connected to a secure, trusted WiFi source. This will prevent hackers from gaining access to your account.
- Keep your WSB debit and credit cards safe by using the CardValet app. With the CardValet app, you can instantly turn on and off your debit and credit card. You can get real-time alerts when your card is being used and even set transaction controls for dollar amount limits, merchant categories and geographic locations. These features ensure that you are the only one able to use your card.
