password strategies. Even though RSB requires a strong password, if you store
banking data on your computer or mobile devices, make sure they are password
protected. If your computer or phone is ever lost or stolen, it will make it
that much more difficult for would-be thieves to access your data. If you have
trouble remembering all your passwords, rather than risk getting a written
password list stolen or misplaced, you can use a password manager app that will
store all your passwords. That way, you will only need to remember the password
for the password manager.
devices updated. Just as RSB keeps their security up-to-date, you need to make sure the

device makers update their software regularly, not only with new features, but

your bank or personal information. Hackers and identity thieves can use sophisticated
tricks to get you to reveal personal information. They can create fake websites
that look like your bank, emails that appear legitimate and phone calls that
will try to scare you. Readlyn Savings Bank will never send you a request
asking for your personal or banking information. Contact RSB directly using the
contact information you already have if you receive any type of request. Don't
reply to an email or phone call, even if they seem legitimate.
When it comes
to security, not every network is created equal. Even if your computer and devices are
secure, if you access your bank from an unsecured network, your data can be
compromised. Connecting to the public Wi-Fi at your local coffee shop might be
free, but using it can expose your personal data to thieves. Wait to access
important sites, such as your bank or email account, from your home network. If
you need to access your bank while away from home, use the bank app on your
phone while you are connected to your mobile provider.
You can secure
your connection to the internet by using a virtual private network, or VPN.
Reliable VPN software will usually come with a monthly fee but is a necessity
if you need to access your banking information from unfamiliar networks.
