In today's digital age, ensuring the security of your financial accounts is paramount. At Sikorsky Credit Union, we prioritize the protection of our members' assets and strive to provide resources and tools to help you safeguard your accounts effectively.

Here are some essential tips to keep your Sikorsky Credit Union account secure.

#1 – Regularly Monitor Your Account

Stay vigilant by frequently monitoring your account activity. Utilize our convenient online and mobile banking platforms to keep track of transactions and quickly identify any unauthorized activity. Set up alerts to receive notifications for specific account activities, such as large transactions or balance changes.

#2 – Keep Your Password Secure

Create strong, unique passwords for your Sikorsky Credit Union account and avoid using the same password across multiple platforms. Remember to update your password periodically and refrain from sharing it with anyone.

Sikorsky Credit Union never initiates contact with members via text or phone to reset your online banking password. Beware of fraudulent messages and calls impersonating us.

#3 – Email Security

Phishing attempts are deceptive emails designed to trick individuals into revealing sensitive information. Be cautious of emails requesting personal or account details, especially if they come from unfamiliar sources or contain suspicious attachments or links. If you receive an email that raises suspicion, refrain from opening attachments, clicking on links, or providing any information in response.

#4 – Continue to Educate Yourself

Take advantage of the educational resources available on our website's Security Center. Here, you'll find valuable information on common security threats, best practices for protecting your accounts, and how to recognize phishing scams. Stay informed and empower yourself to make informed decisions about your account security.

By following these proactive measures and leveraging the resources available to you on our website, you can take control of your account security and enjoy peace of mind knowing that your finances are protected. At Sikorsky Credit Union, we're committed to helping you safeguard your financial future every step of the way. For more information and additional security tips, visit our Security Center.
