Account Security and Protection Tips

Whether you do your banking and shopping from your smartphone, tablet, or in-person, security should always be a top priority in your mind. Being proactive is one of the best ways to fight against fraud and identity theft. By making it a routine to check your account activity, you are less likely to become a target of fraud.

Emails from Bethpage Federal Credit Union:

Fraudsters use phishing/spoof emails to trick you into revealing personal information for them to access your accounts. Although these fraudulent emails may look like an email from Bethpage, they are not. We will never ask you for personal account information via email. We will only notify you of changes made to your account.
