Online Security—Your Responsibilites
Providing a secure Internet banking experience is just one part of the security process. We need your help to complete the process by taking the following precautions.
If you have any questions about our Web site security, please contact our Webmaster.
Ignore Unsolicited Emails that Request Personal Information
UW Credit Union will never send an unsolicited email that requests you to "confirm" or "update" your password or account information.
Update Your Operating System and Internet Browser Regularly
Keep your operating system (i.e., Windows, OS X, Red Hat) and Internet browser (i.e., Internet Explorer, Netscape) up-to-date with the latest security patches and software updates.
Protect Yourself with Anti-Virus Software
Maintain anti-virus software on all systems used to access your accounts. Make sure that the anti-virus library files are up to date. This protects your system from current viruses.
Choose Passwords Wisely and Keep Them Confidential
Follow our specific suggestions for creating a password. Change it frequently to ensure others cannot guess it. Do not share your password with anybody, including UW Credit Union staff. We do not need to know your Web Branch password to help you with Web Branch or any of your accounts.
"Log Off" and Close Your Browser When You Are Done
Click the "Log off" button to properly end your Web Branch session so no further transactions can be processed. Be sure to close your browser after logging off.
Protect Yourself While Using Web Branch
Be sure you are not being watched while entering your Web Branch information. Never leave your computer unattended while logged onto your Web Branch accounts, enabling others to access your account information.
