Online Security

Amalgamated Bank of Chicago (ABOC) takes secure banking very seriously. Our internet banking uses secure technology to encrypt your personal information such as User IDs, Passwords and account information over the Internet.

We also have visual end user verification on our internet banking websites. Extended Validation (EV) certificates provide you the end user a way to visually verify the security of the ABOC website before entering your online banking password or supplying answers to security questions. The EV will cause the secure browser’s address bar to turn GREEN when an end user accesses an EV secured site. It also identifies the legitimate owner of the website, which in this case is Fiserv, Inc.

Because your online security is important to us at ABOC, we would like to share with you the following tips to protect yourself from online threats.

By working together, we can make your online banking experience convenient, safer and more secure.

And, please remember that Fraud never sleeps. It’s global, organized and tech-savvy. Whether online, by phone, through a dating website or in “You May Have Won a Free Prize” offers in your mailbox, criminals will find you.
