There are several steps you should take to increase the security of your computer, which can help to protect your personal and financial information.
To guard against unauthorized access, make sure you have a personal firewall installed on your computer and that it is turned on at all times. Many Internet service providers offer a personal firewall feature.
Make sure your computer operating system (Windows for example) and your web browser (such as Internet Explorer) remain secure against the latest threats. Turn on automatic updates for both. Doing so provides security updates and patches that protect against the latest criminal attempts to attack your computer.
Malware is malicious software that is installed on your computer without your knowledge. It includes viruses, spyware and adware that infect your computer with harmful intent, for example to capture your login passwords or other personal data. By installing malware-detecting software, commonly referred to as antivirus and antispyware software, you can set it to update automatically to guard against new risks.
Only install applications and software from well-known companies you trust. Many times, software downloaded from the Internet, such as free games, carries and installs malware.
Typically, a pop-up blocker is available as a feature of your browser (such as Internet Explorer). Don’t click on any links within pop-ups, as this may install malware on your computer.
When conducting Online Banking and financial transactions, it is best to use a trusted computer, preferably your own. It is a good idea to clear your computer browser's cookies and cached files, as they can store information about your Online Banking session. Refer to your particular browser’s “Help” feature for directions on clearing cookies and cached files. Close the browser window when you are done.
It is not recommended that you use a public computer for online banking. When you use a public computer, there is the risk that the computer could have malware or a person using it after you could sign on to your account.
Networks in cafes, hotels, airports, libraries and other public places are usually not secure and are easy to tamper with. Even if you are provided a password, that does not guarantee a secure connection. If you are unsure about the security of a public network, it is best not to conduct Online Banking while using it. For more information about using public Wi-Fi networks, visit the FTC OnGuardOnline.gov web site.
