Bellco works to ensure your financial information remains safe and secure, but Internet security requires more than technology alone. Ultimately, when dealing with viruses, spyware, and computer hackers, each of us is responsible for protecting our own computer system. To help protect your identity, use the simple tips outlined below when you are online.
How we work to protect you
Bellco will never initiate a request for sensitive information via email (i.e. Social Security number, Username, Automated Phone Banking PIN, password, or account numbers). If you receive an email that requests this type of sensitive information, you should be suspicious of it.
To help ensure your financial information remains safe and secure, Bellco’s Online Banking uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt your personal information such as your SSN, Username, Automated Phone Banking PIN, password, and account information over the Internet. Any information provided to you is scrambled en route and decoded once it reaches your browser. However, it is important to keep your browsers up-to-date.
