Online Security Tools

Keep your check images secure

Electronic statements are safer than paper statements that must be printed, mailed and stored. But both types of statements may contain check images that include a representation of your signature used to authorize the check. If you store check images or statements on your computer, please make sure you take precautions to protect that sensitive information.

If you still receive paper statements, or have stored old statements, where check signatures may be visible, be sure to keep them in a safe place. Better yet, shred them.
