We also provide you with tips and insights through our online Security and Privacy pages. Here are just a few highlights from that section:
Online Banking: Know what to expect on your login page. For Rabobank, you’ll enter your login ID on the first page and your password on the next page, where you’ll also see your Identity Image. If you notice anything suspicious: Call your local Rabobank branch or report the incident to our eBanking customer service line at (800) 959-2399.
Smartphones: When banking or accessing other sensitive information via your smartphone, use a secure Internet connection in a private location. Use and regularly update anti-virus and anti-spyware programs on your smartphone, too, just as you would on your computer.
Wi-Fi: If you have a wireless Internet connection at home, change the default administrator login and password to something only you know. Also, enable strong security on your Wi-Fi access point.
Web browsers: Use firewalls, as well as anti-virus and anti-spyware software, and make sure to install any security patches. To further increase the protection level when you’re surfing the Internet, adjust your browser settings to block pop-up windows and use filters that warn of suspicious Web sites.
Along with the Rabobank information, you can learn more about online safety, identity theft protection and scams at the Federal Trade Commission’s Computer Security pages and the FDIC Web site.
