Mobile Banking Device Security
Safety tips to protect your mobile device:
- When purchasing a smartphone turn off features not needed. Learn how to set your device back to default settings.
- Use encryption installed on the phone to protect your personal data in the case of loss or theft.
- Look at the reviews and developer before downloading apps
- Review and understand the permissions you are giving when you download applications.
- Passcode protect your mobile device. This is the first layer of physical security to protect the contents of the device.
- Enable the screen lock feature after a few minutes of inactivity.
- Obtain malware protection for your mobile device. Look for applications that specialize in antivirus/malware or file integrity.
- Be aware of applications that enable geo-location. The application will track the user’s location anywhere. This application can be used for marketing, stalkers and/or burglaries.
- Do not allow your device to connect to unknown wireless networks. These networks could be access points that capture information passed between your device and a fraudulent server.
- If you decide to sell your device or trade it in, make sure you wipe the device (reset it to factory default) to avoid leaving personal data on the device.
- Smartphones require updates to run applications and firmware. If users neglect this, it increases the risk of having their device hacked or compromised.
- Avoid clicking on or otherwise downloading software or links from unknown sources.
- Use the same precautions on your mobile phone as you would on your computer when using the Internet.
- Do not use your full or partial Social Security # as a Personal Identification # (PIN), user ID or password.
- Make sure your password is 8 or more characters and combines letters, numerals, and/or symbols. Do not use the same user ID and password for your financial accounts as you do for other sites.
- Do not use your device to store sensitive personal information or bank account #’s.
- Never respond to urgent email or text claiming to be from a bank or any company that requests your account information or personal details.
