That is where your digital banking comes in to be the hero. With a few taps on your phone, you’ve paid the cable bill and are back to watching soccer just as the team scores the winning goal.

Here are a few tips when using digital banking to help keep your account safe:
Avoid Using Public Wifi
Public WiFi gives hackers easier access to your computer or phone. Instead, utilize WiFi networks that are password protected. This make it more difficult for criminals to get your information.
Create Strong Passwords
We all have dozens of passwords for all kinds of accounts. It’s easy to want to use the same password across multiple accounts, however this should be avoided. Choose a strong, unique password for your digital banking. Pennian requires a certain number of characters with a mixture of letters, numbers and special symbols.
Monitor Your Accounts
The best way to be aware of what’s happening in your bank account is by monitoring it regularly. With mobile banking, it’s easy to log in and check your account on the go. Look for anything that seems out of place. If you suspect fraud on your account, call the Bank immediately.
Following these tips will help you keep your account safe from cyber criminals!
