    Deleting Saved Passwords in your Internet Browser

    If your password is saved and showing in the ‘Password’ box—and you don’t want it to be, we recommend clearing the cache on your device(s).

    This can be done by following the steps below:

    •For Windows select CTRL + Shift + R

    •For Mac select CMD + Shift + R

    •On mobile devices, this is found in your settings.

  • Our Personal Financial Manager tool, located inside Online & Mobile Banking, allows you to manage your money from your AltaOne Online Banking account by allowing you to see where and how you spend your money and more.

    Mobile Picture-Taking Guidelines
    •Hold the camera parallel to the item and match the check inside the guidelines on the phone.

    •Turn off the flash, as it may wash out the image quality.

    •Ensure the background is a solid, consistent color without patterns or obvious texture. (Marble or wood grain tabletops have been known to cause issues with image quality.)

    •If your table surface is not a solid contrasting color, use a solid-colored sheet of paper in a contrasting color behind/under the check.

    •Do not use a background close in color to the check, as the optics may have trouble reading the edges of the item, causing cropping issues.

    •Ensure the lighting is bright, without any shadowing.

    •Lay the check as flat as possible, without folds, so the image is not warped.

    •If needed, place a small dot on each corner of the check (about the size of a pencil eraser) to help align the check and define the borders.

    •Business Checks: 8.7 by 3.8 inches

    •Personal Checks: 5.7 by 2.2 inches

    3. Click on your Credit Card number

    4. Hover your cursor over Services

  • Do not use a public computer

    If you are using a computer that others also have access to, they can easily install a key (logger software) that can collect your user ID, PINs, or credit/debit card information.

    Do not use a public Wi-Fi network

    All it takes is a moderately tech-savvy criminal and a low-cost scanner, and your information can be plucked out of thin air. By the way, a hotel Wi-Fi network is not a secure network.

    Keep your browser up to date

    No matter what browser you are using, make sure you keep it updated. All browsers are regularly updated to address security and performance issues. If you haven’t or can’t update your browser, your security can be compromised easily. When those pesky boxes pop up telling you to update your browser, take the time to do it—especially if you are using online bill pay. Also, always look for a secure connection. You should see a secure padlock in the bottom right-hand corner of your browser that tells you your information is encrypted. Lastly, make sure that any page you use to pay bills online has a URL (address) with “https” in it, as this signifies a secure connection.

    Use anti-virus/anti-malware

    If you use your own personal computer to access the Internet, you need to have anti-virus and anti-malware software running and current.

    Passwords, passwords, passwords!

    Don’t even think about using 1234 or abcd as your passwords. Take the personal responsibility to secure your information with a secure password! It is very important to change your password on a regular basis. A strong password should contain uppercase and lowercase alpha characters (but no words or names) and numeric characters and be at least eight characters long. Use a special character as well if the site allows one. If you’re having problems managing your passwords, think about using password management tools like KeePass Password Safe.

    Don’t click on links

    Either bookmark the website in your browser or type in the website address. Don’t click on a link provided by your bank or a biller in an email. These links can lead you to fake websites that attempt to capture your information when you log in using your ID and password. By not clicking on that link, you are protecting yourself against a phishing expedition.

  • Mandate and enforce process controls

    Such as segregation of duties and dual control when handling payments, sensitive bank information, and personally identifiable information (PII).

    Use secure and trusted internet connections

    When conducting business and sharing sensitive information.

    Regularly inspect credit agency reports

    And state record databases to identify and fix any discrepancies.

    Conduct background checks

    On all employees and contractors who are authorized to handle sensitive data, as well as initiate and/or approve payments.

    Review all accounts at least once daily

    And reconcile frequently to identify any unusual debits or credits, including small dollar amounts that may seem negligible.

    Reduce the risk of loss

    By using fraud mitigation tools such as positive pay and ACH blocks/filters to prevent unauthorized transactions.

    Be alert to emails that contain attachments or hyperlinks

    Although anti-malware and anti-phishing tools may block most malicious emails, it’s best to be cautious since no single solution catches everything.

    Notify the credit union and law enforcement

    If accounts and/or sensitive data have been compromised or seized. The credit union can safeguard accounts from further exposure and restore services while the matter is investigated.

    Verbally authenticate all changes

    To payment requests and delivery instructions, especially those that require urgent and discreet handling.

    Separate activity for payables and receivables

    To allow better control over account transactions and easier reconciliation.

    Watch out for emails claiming to be from legitimate sources if those communications are not typical

    Random and unsolicited emails should be scrutinized closely since these are likely phishing attempts.

    Build and promote a culture

    Where fraud awareness and mitigation are second nature for the whole team. Educate employees about the different scams they may encounter from external threats and adopt measures to identify fraudulent transactions that may originate internally.
