Online Security

  • Never click on suspicious links in emails, tweets, posts, or online advertising.  Links can take you to a different website than their labels indicate. Typing an address in your browser instead of clicking a link in an email is a safer alternative.
  • Only submit sensitive information to websites using encryption to ensure your information is protected as it travels across the Internet.  Verify the web address begins with "https://" (the "s" is for secure) rather than just "http://".  Some browsers also display a closed padlock.
  • Do not trust sites with certificate warnings or errors.  These messages could be caused by your connection being intercepted or the web server misrepresenting its identity.
  • Avoid using public computers or public wireless access points for online banking and other activities involving sensitive information when possible.
  • Always "sign out" or "log off" of password protected websites when finished to prevent unauthorized access.  Simply closing the browser window may not actually end your session.
  • Be cautious of unsolicited phone calls, emails, or texts directing you to a website or requesting information.
