Is it Safe?
CFCU anywhere features three levels of security. At the user level, the system requires an SSL-compliant browser (Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer) to ensure information is authentic, cannot be deciphered and has not been altered en route. Once a secure connection has been established, a valid log-in ID and password are needed to gain accesss to services. Remember, it's important to protect your log-in ID and password from others.
Server level security features a sophisticated filtering system which blocks non-secured activity and defends against inappropriate access. At the host level, transactions are sent via secure dedicated communications lines from the home banking server to transaction server which verifies member identity. Once authenticated, the member is allowed to process authorized Internet banking and bill payment transactions using host data.
The security of CFCU anywhere rivals that of some of the most secure government facilities.
