Protecting Your Private Information


Safeguard Your Private Information.

Criminals are constantly trying to steal consumers’ personal data using fake emails, websites, phone calls, and text messages. They use a variety of ways to try to trick people into providing Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, and other valuable information.

So what can you do?

Start with the basics:

Protect Your Sensitive Information

Never provide passwords, ATM/Debit card PINs, online banking secure access codes or credit card CVV codes to anyone for sensitive accounts like your bank, email, and social media. No really, anyone!


Use Different Passwords

Don’t use the same password for logins to your important accounts like banking, credit card, email and social media. Hackers love to steal one password and try it on lots of your accounts.


Multi-Factor Authentication

Use Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for logins for all your important accounts like email and social media. If the scammers steal your password, it is much harder to get into your accounts if you have MFA enabled. MSB already requires MFA for logins so we’ve got you covered there!


Automatic Updates

Keep your computer, mobile phone, and tablet safe by utilizing automatic updates for operating systems and security patches.

Lock Your Devices

Always lock your device or PC with a passcode or biometric tools when you’re not using it. Always.

Unexpected Communications

Be suspicious of any unexpected calls, emails, or texts that urgently need you to provide account information or passwords.


Links and Attachments

Be apprehensive of any unsolicited emails or texts that ask you click on a link or open an attachment. When in doubt, call the person or company with a known, legitimate number.


No Gift Cards

Asked to purchase gift cards unexpectedly? Assume it’s a scam and thank us later!


Fake Check Scams

Never, ever never ever never agree to cash or deposit a check for someone you do not know who offers for you to keep some of the proceeds and send the rest back. This is always a scam. Yes, Virginia, this includes deposits from your phone.
