At Astra Bank, one of our biggest priorities is keeping your information safe and secure. Our policies and procedures help ensure that your information is kept confidential from would-be data thieves. In order to keep your information and finances safe, however, you must also help by staying vigilant to the methods and tactics used by scammers to trick and deceive.
Having correct contact information allows us to get a hold of you in case we detect fraud on your account. It also ensures your information isn’t falling into the wrong hands. Contact us if you’ve recently moved or have changed your phone number.
In addition to Astra Bank contacting you by phone when suspicious transactions appear on your debit card, you also have the option of receiving text alerts. Learn more about fraudulent activity text alerts here.
A strong, unique password protects your account from hackers and keeps your separate accounts safe in case one of the websites you use is compromised. Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security by adding an additional login credential to access your account. It usually requires something that belongs to you, like a badge, token, or an authentication number from an app on your phone. This is one of the best ways to add security to your accounts. Many popular apps and websites such as Facebook, Google, and Apple have two-factor authentication as an option for your account.
Benefits Checking offers Cyberscout® Identity Theft Resolution as just one of its many benefits. This comprehensive protection helps restore your identity and includes immediate household family members.
