Personal Security

 

Security is a priority at Security Service. This section will help you learn how you can take steps to protect yourself and your family when you use a computer, your ATM or debit card, and more.

Protect Yourself And Your Finances, Online And Off

ATM/Debit Card Security

  • Treat your card like cash and protect it at all times.
  • Do not lend or give your card to anyone.
  • Take your card with you after making a purchase or withdrawal.
  • Take your receipt with you and verify it against your monthly account statement.
  • Report a lost or stolen card immediately, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to 1.800.725.5411.

Personal Identification Number (PIN) Security

  • Do not share your PIN with anyone.
  • Do not write your PIN on the card or the card sleeve.
  • Do not store the PIN with your card, in your wallet, or in your purse.
  • Do not allow anyone else to enter your code for you.
  • Stand between the ATM/terminal and anyone waiting to use the machine so that others cannot see your PIN or transaction amount.

ATM Security

  • Park close to the ATM and observe the entire ATM area before leaving the safety of your car.
  • Do not allow a stranger to help you make a transaction.
  • Observe the entire ATM area before rolling down the window of your car to use the drive-up ATM.
  • Minimize the time spent at the ATM by counting the money after you have left the ATM.
  • Cancel your transaction and leave immediately if you see anyone or anything suspicious.

Home Computer Security

  • Change your passwords on a regular basis.
  • Do not download or install software without verifying the source.
  • Do not click links inside spam email.
  • Install a personal firewall on your computer.
