Protect Yourself from Malware – Look for the Green Bar!
PC World reports that malware known as “Tiny Banker” has been customized to target banks. It often appears with the bank’s logo and asks for online banking users’ information. To be sure you’re safe, we encourage you to check the address bar when logging into Online Banking to be sure it turns green. An Extended Validation certificate, which appears as a green address bar, was added in April, which provides a visual confirmation that you are on a secure site.
The bank uses multiple channels of authentication to protect our customers’ information. At every log in attempt, we verify all the following:
– A valid User ID and Password
– The computer or mobile device must be recognized
– The geographic location
If any of these three do not match the customer’s existing profile, customers will be asked to answer a security question.
