Online Safety

Your security is of the utmost importance at Vision Bank-Texas. We believe that the best defense against online criminals is for us to keep you as informed as possible. Below are a practical set of tips to help you protect yourself against identity theft.

Identity theft can occur in a number of ways:

  • Getting personal information off of bills or credit statements in the trash.
  • Eavesdropping on personal transactions in public.
  • Impersonating a bank or credit union in an email.
  • Gathering information from a facsimile of a legitimate site.

Here are a few things you can do to prevent identity theft:

  • Shred any documents with your social security number or credit information rather than throwing it away.
  • Log off your computer when you leave it.
  • Install anti-virus and anti-spyware software on your computer and run it at least every two weeks.
  • Be wary of emails from sources you don't know.
