Protecting Your Online Accounts
With identity theft on the rise, protecting yourself from hackers can be more challenging than ever. TFCU wants your account information to be safe and secure. We suggest changing your User ID and password in Home Branch to something unique. Taking these few precautions can save you a lot of trouble and headache.
- Select a unique User ID. We recommend not using your account number as your User ID. Pick something only you would know. It is best not to use names or words which could be easily guessed.
- Pick a strong password. Don’t use common words or significant dates in your life. Create a password that is a mix of capital and lowercase letters, numbers, and is a minimum of eight characters.
- Memorize your passwords. Do not write them down. If you must to remember them, keep them in a locked file or drawer for protection.
- Use multiple passwords. It is a good idea to use one password to access your TFCU online accounts and not use that password on any other accounts. This limits the amount of damage that can be done.
