It's Important to Protect The Things That Matter.

What you can do to secure your information from theft and fraud.

Your Security Is Our Top Priority

At Wheelhouse Credit Union, protecting your account information and providing a safe banking experience is one of our top most priorities. We’ve gathered the tips below to help keep your information safe and secure.

Tips for Protecting Your Information

Set a Strong Password

The longer the better—something you can remember but difficult for someone else to guess. You can use a string of words for a password, for example; 1LOVEWheelhouseCU. Change your password regularly.

Use Two-Factor Authentication

This adds another layer of security, supplementing your username and password with a code that only you have access to (typically sent to you by email, text or telephone call). We recommend you set this up as part of your digital banking login.

Monitor Your Account Activity

You are the first line of defense in detecting and defending fraudulent activity on your accounts. Keep an eye out for unfamiliar transactions, and set up account alerts to notify you of large transactions.

Secure Your Mobile Device

Keep your device up-to-date with the latest operating system and security updates. Do not modify the device software, install applications outside the established application stores, nor allow in Settings unknown developer sources to install applications, use strong passwords and available security biometrics such as TouchID or facial recognition features to unlock the device and use the manufacturer’s device recovery or location detection to erase data remotely if lost or stolen.

Be Very Careful with Your Personal Secure Information

Don’t give personal information to unsolicited callers. Don’t click on links in emails that ask for your personal information. Don’t respond to voicemails or phone calls asking to verify account information, reactivate service or threats of adverse action to your account. Don’t visit suspicious websites or follow links you don’t trust.

Protect Your Identity

Visit the Federal Trade Commission’s Identity Theft website or call 1-877-IDTHEFT (438-4338) to learn how to minimize your risk of damage from a potential theft of your identity.

Online Security and Cookies

To protect the information you provide us online, we use multiple levels of security. The application information we accept online and our Digital Banking service relies on industry standard “Secure Sockets Layer” (SSL) encryption to secure your transaction information and communication. When you visit our website, you can access site information, without revealing your personal identity. However, in order to help us identify you for future site visits, we use “cookies” to track your visit. A “cookie” is a piece of information that our web server stores on your computer hard drive and retrieves later. The cookie will not request, require or collect personal identity information and you remain anonymous. Your member information is not accessed by or stored within a cookie in any way.

Computer Security Tips

Keep your computer up-to-date

Protect your computer through the use of active, up-to-date anti-virus software and firewall protection. Keep your operating system, browser, and other applications updated with the latest security patches.

Use secure connections

Avoid making online transactions while at wireless hotspots or Internet cafés. Always check for the browser “lock” icon in the URL address bar. Be aware that this only signifies a secure communication channel, not necessarily a legitimate website.

Monitor Your Transactions

Log in and check your account statements or transaction history regularly. Report any suspicious or unauthorized transactions immediately.

Monitor Your Credit Report

Check credit reports to spot accounts that may have been opened without your knowledge.

Always Logout

When finished with Digital Banking, use the “Logout” option. This completely logs you out, avoiding any potential unauthorized use. When stepping away from your computer use the Logout option as well; Wheelhouse Credit Union system will time out after a short period, but not immediately.

When you create your Digital Banking account, you will be asked for the following information:

  • Member Number
  • Social Security Number
  • Date of Birth
  • You will also be asked to provide one of the two following pieces of information: E-mail address or Zip Code
  • Minimum eight characters in length
  • Must include one numeric digit
  • Must include one uppercase character
  • Must include one lowercase character
  • It is highly recommended that you set up two factor authentication as part of your login process.
