Securing Online Transactions

Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a protocol that ensures that a connection to a remote endpoint is securely encrypted in order to provide privacy and data integrity. TLS is a key component of internet browser security. TLS 1.2 is the most current version and is considered the most secure. TLS 1.0 and 1.1 are being discontinued due to security implications. Keep your browser up to date to make sure you're protected. Click here for more details.

Preventing Fraud

  • Identity theft occurs when your personal information is obtained and used to acquire new bank or credit card accounts, secure loans or even commit crimes.
  • Effective methods of reducing fraud are:  Shred personal and\or financial documents before disposing of them. Destroy unused credit cards. Match receipts to monthly billing statements. Use longer and more complex PIN's and passwords. Sign all credit cards and debit cards immediately. Notify financial institutions of address changes in advance. Look closely at ATM's to detect any suspicious alterations before using them. Be cautious of suspicious e-mails. Never click on hyperlinks from unknown senders.
  • E-mail is not a secure method of communication. Sensitive personal and account information such as account numbers, passwords, PINs, or Social Security numbers should not be sent via e-mail.
  • Forward fraudulent e-mails to reportphishing@ubankonline.com. Delete the e-mail immediately after forwarding it.
  • If you feel you have responded to a fraudulent e-mail, text message, or phone call, please call 785-562-4312 for assistance. Provide as much information as possible contained in the message.
