How Can I Make Mobile Banking Safer?
Taylor Bank's Mobile Banking is safe, but there are a few extra precautions you can take to further safeguard your personal and financial information:
Passcode your device. Set this passcode to enable automatically after a certain period of time.
Don't save your login information. This goes for your device, and any websites you visit. Log off completely after using the web browser or app.
Don't get phished. Don't click on links or attachments in text messages or email. These links may lead to malicious websites or downloads.
Create secure passwords. Avoid simple, common passwords, such as, your name, birth date, or other easily identifiable information. Change your password frequently.
Be cautious when downloading apps. Make sure apps are from known and reputable providers. Download apps from the official Web site of the bank or company that you are doing business with, or from a legitimate app store.
Treat your mobile device like a computer. Download recommended security updates, and a reputable antivirus software.
Do not use Public Wi-Fi to bank, shop, check email, or do other business. This can expose your user name or password over a public network. It's safer to use the mobile phone's network, which encrypts data as it is transmitted.
