Online Security

Let's work together to keep your financial information safe.

How We Work to Protect You

CEFCU uses 256-bit secure sockets layer (SSL) encryption, monitors and constantly updates systems, and uses multiple security layers and strong business practices.

Online Banking: You may be prompted to change your password from time to time. Your security phrase and image are there to verify that you are on CEFCU's server, so it is safe to do this.

Internet security requires more than technology alone. When dealing with viruses, spyware, and computer hackers, each of us is responsible for protecting our own computer system.

How You Can Keep Your Computer Safer

  • Log off Online Banking when you complete your transactions.
  • Clear your cache/personal information after using online services.
  • Make sure your browser is up-to-date.
  • Choose a secure password and change it periodically.
    • Develop the longest password the system allows.
    • Use alphanumeric characters and special characters if the system allows.
    • Choose something easy to remember, but difficult for someone else to guess.
    • Do not write down your password.
    • Do not share your password with others.

Never reply to emails requesting personal information

Be very suspicious of any email requesting your password, Personal Identification Number (PIN), credit or debit card number, Social Security number, or other highly sensitive personal information.
