Fraud never sleeps. It is an industry of global, organized, and tech-savvy crime.
You are the answer. You can beat fraud.
Amalgamated Bank of Chicago takes secure banking very seriously. Our online banking platform uses secure technology to encrypt your personal information. By working together, we can make your online banking experience convenient, safer, and more secure.
General Security Practices
- Make sure your computer and device software are up to date. Use automatic updates for your PC and your phone.
- Keep your login credentials in a password safe. These encrypted stores remember your passwords for you and prevent them from being stolen. Examples include free utilities like Bitwarden and PWSafe or affordable utilities such as LastPass, Bitwarden .
- Only deal with vendors you have a reason to trust. Emailed advertisements are often malicious.
- Have good antivirus software installed.
- Never put your full account number, user name, or password in an email, even to us.
- Malicious actors imitate executives every day. Never move money because you received an unexpected email from an executive until you have confirmed the email by phone.
- Be extremely cautious about any message that involves money. Have a dual-step process in place for wire transfers. This can include verbal communication using a telephone number known by both parties.
- Do not open attachments you were not expecting—even when they come from people you trust. Email accounts are compromised every day. Call the sender using the number on file.
- Hover your mouse over links before you click. Be sure you know what you are opening.
- Be aware of small changes in email addresses that mimic legitimate email addresses.
