Conduction Online Transactions
Online Banking allows members of Tulsa Federal Credit Union to conduct financial transactions via the internet on a secure website operated by Tulsa FCU. Tulsa FCU has in place various security policies and procedures to reduce the risk of unauthorized online access to member’s accounts. To ensure member account records are as safe as possible, we require online passwords to consist of letters, numbers, and special characteristics. Tulsa FCU also requires the correct answer to security questions.
Internet threats increase annually. Hacking techniques and the manipulation of software are among the most popular practices people use to attempt to deceive members into stealing their login data thru text message or e-mail. This is known as Phishing. Another popular method is attempting to recreate a fake website to entice members to enter personal information. This is known as Pharming.
In an effort to ensure the security of your account, Tulsa FCU wants you to know our policy:
Tulsa FCU will never ask you for your user login, password, or answers to your security questions via email, text, or phone. Our Home Banking will only ask for you user name, password, and answers to your security questions. (If you are having problem with the home banking system additional information may be asked once the account holder has been verified.)
To further protect yourself from becoming a victim of internet fraud you can implement the following safety precautions:
- Choose a password with a high percentage strength level, including upper case letters, lower case letters, numbers, and symbols.
- Never use your social security number, information found on your driver’s license, and try not to use a word found in a dictionary.
- Change your password often, every 90 days.
- Try to use a password that is easy to remember, and do not share your password with anyone. If you have to write it down, store it in a safe place.
- Install anti-virus and anti-malware on your personal computer.
- Be sure to log out, never “X” out of the browser.
Financial institutions are required by federal laws to provide some protection for members who choose to bank electronically. This protection is known as The Electronic Fund Transfer Act, more commonly known as Regulation E. This act outlines the members’ rights and liabilities regarding conditioning transactions online. Tulsa FCU has an Electronic Fund Transfer – You Rights and Responsibilities Disclosure which can be found on our website at tulsafederalcu.org. Regulation E outlines certain steps a member must follow to resolve a discrepancy regarding a transaction on their account. Please be aware there are time constraints, so notify TFCU immediately if you feel your account has compromised.
We take every precaution to ensure your information remains confidential. The information you provide to us on our website is encrypted and protected with an encryption method called Secure Socket Layer (SSL). While on a secure page, the lock icon on the bottom of web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked or open when you are just ‘surfing’.
