  3. Guarantee that no personally identifiable information is returned or asked for in text banking, such as your full account number, PIN, email, personal address, user ID, and password
  4. Truncated account numbers so that your account numbers are safe and do not appear on the screen of your mobile device

Safety Tips

Like your computer, your mobile device needs to be protected. Help protect your personal information by being aware of the following mobile security threats:

  1. Spammers may use text messages to "phish" for your information. Do not respond to any text messages asking you to "verify" your account information.
  2. Fraudulent mobile apps may capture your personal information and transmit it to their servers. Always download apps from approved sources like your mobile service provider or mobile device manufacturer’s marketplace.
  3. Identity thieves may physically access your mobile phone when you are not watching and try to steal personal information. Use the password or PIN feature on your mobile device.
  4. Be aware of shoulder surfing while accessing mobile banking.
  5. Do not store your PIN and personal data on your mobile devices.
  6. Do not leave your mobile device idle while your mobile banking session is still active.
