Protect Your Password
Use a strong password. Password123, qwerty (one of the most common passwords), your name, phone number, or children’s and pets’ names are easy to remember, so avoid them to be safe online. Don’t save it and share it with others. Use a password manager if you can’t remember your password. Be careful when you answer a phone call pretending to be from the bank, and asking if it is fraudulent or confirming your account information. You may also receive fraudulent e-mails. Specify the account type in the URL. Be sure to disable it if you have enabled automatic work for bank forms.
