old passwords as they coudl be stored by fraudulent individuals.
- Please contact the bank immediately if you are concerned about any transactions on your accounts.
- Be cautious when using your account or card information on the internet for purchases.

More Prevention Tips
|What does Vision Bank do to assist in Preventing Fraudulent Activity happening to you?|
Vision Bank cares about our customers and their lives. We also understand that for us to be a success, we rely on our ability to provide banking products in a secure manner as well as assisting in education to the customer regarding tips on securing login and password information and to offer awareness of potentially fraudulent activity. Here are the measures Vision Bank strives to bring to our customers:
- Vision Bank does not display your account numbers over the internet. Instead we ask that you choose a "pseudo" name for
each of your online accounts. You may choose the Pseudo name under the "Options" section of our Internet Banking service
- In order to access you accounts online, you must enter a unique username and password. We strongly recommend choosing
a password of good strength and complexity while remaining memorable
- We use the latest encryption technology to ensure that your private information cannot be obtained. Encryption is a tool to
rewrite information in code, which can be decoded at the proper destination with the proper "key" or password information
- Vision Bank believes in 3 Strikes and You're Out! If an unauthorized person attempts to login to a customer's Internet Banking
Account by guessing, the bank will automatically lock out the account after 3 tries.
- To further protect you, we use several different variances such as requiring at least a 6 character length password including
Letter, Numbers, and Special Characters. Vision Bank also restricts the past 4 previously used passwords on Internet
Banking. We also incorporate the use of a timeout feature that initiates after 10 minutes of no activity; the system will
automatically log you out of your Online Banking session.
These are just a few of the many security processes that Vision Bank incorporates to keep your information safe. Even though these are not 100% fool-proof, they will significantly increase the security of personal information, along with the use of good Antivirus and Malware software.
While Vision Bank does not offer support for PC Antivirus and Malware software programs, we do recommend that you use these types of software programs on your computer. Vision Bank is not responsible for damages related to third party software incidents.
