TIPS FOR ON-LINE SAFETY
The Wanda State Bank strives to keep your online experience safe and we take every measure possible to keep your information secure. We have firewalls that are strategically placed to control and filter information traffic with our service provider and we use the highest encryption possible when your information is transmitted to them. We also offer various levels of protection every time you log on! As you may know, you have to contact us to activate your account. After we have verified your identity, the first level of protection is that we assign you a unique user ID which connects you to your specific account information. The random code that you see and must enter is another safety feature, followed by answering a security question that you have created and personalized. The security key is a word that you choose when you initially enroll. This word or phrase is something that you see every time you log in. Seeing this ensures that you have not entered a site that is trying to look like ours. If you do not see your personalized security key, DO NOT proceed and notify us immediately. Finally you are able to enter the PIN that you assigned. If your account has more than 3 invalid attempts to log in, it automatically locks the account and we must remove that lock before you will be able to get back in. As you can see the more steps it takes to log in to your account, the more secure the site.
There are things you can do to help protect your information too. When creating your questions and answers, it is important to use those that would be easy for you to remember but very hard for somebody else to know. We do not recommend using birth dates, anniversaries, phone numbers, etc, as this is information that someone close to you would likely already know. Also make sure your PIN is unique. Using a combination of numbers, letters, and symbols makes it much harder for someone else to guess what you used. Never leave your computer unattended while you are logged on, and never share your User ID or Password with anyone. It is also a great idea to make sure your computer has good firewall protection that is up to date. All of these steps used in combination are a great way to help keep your information safe and secure.
