What security precautions should I take to keep my account information safe?

Even though RCU is making use of technology to keep your account information safe as it passes over the internet, you still play an important role in keeping your account safe.
  • The primary information you should protect is your account number, PIN (Personal Identification Number) or password used to access RCU's online banking system.

  • You should memorize your password; do not write it down.

  • Change your passwords often.

  • Log off when you are done and do not leave your computer unattended.

  • When selecting a password do not use a password that is easily associated with you such as your address, birth date, names of pets, etc. 

  • Your password should also contain characters and numbers.  Please be aware that hackers create programs that attempt to run through a series of passwords in hopes of gaining access to systems.

  • Use good judgment regarding the protection of your sensitive information and you will avoid the majority of problems.
