Ways to Protect Your Identity and Keep Your Accounts Safe

Updated: Feb 24


With everything going on in the world, ID theft is one headache that none of us want. There are safety precautions that all members should take to keep their CalCom and other accounts safe.


Do:

  • Sign up for eStatements to stop identity thieves from stealing sensitive information from your mailbox. Log in to Online Banking to enroll.

  • Take advantage of CalCom's FREE Identity Theft Protection (available with all checking accounts).

  • Enable two-factor or multi-factor authentication on devices and accounts to safeguard them from being compromised.

  • When possible, select credit vs. debit transactions when making purchases with your CalCom Debit Visa Card.

  • Take advantage of free credit reports. You are allowed one free report each year from each of the three national credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian, and Trans Union. You can request your credit report at www.annualcreditreport.com.

  • Shred documents that contain sensitive information. Invest in a cross-cut shredder that leaves no trace of the original document’s content.


Don’t:

  • Don’t carry your social security card in your wallet.

  • Don’t use common passwords or phrases, such as “Password1!” or “123456.”

  • Don’t reuse the same passwords for multiple accounts.

  • Don’t store passwords in an insecure phone app like a notepad.

  • Don’t share personal information to anyone who calls you unless you’re absolutely sure that they are who they say they are – and you feel comfortable with sharing your information. Listen to your instincts. If you feel apprehensive about sharing personal data, don’t do it.

CalCom is committed to helping you keep your accounts safe. Please be sure to contact us right away if you discover an unknown transaction in your CalCom account or have any concerns.
