Safety Tips For Online Bill Pay!

A few clicks, and your bills are paid!

Unfortunately, many people share sensitive information with crooks, thinking they’re paying a bill.

Here’s how to keep your money safe.

1. Never respond to a bill pay service that directly contacts you

In those situations, it’s difficult to verify a link’s authenticity. Instead, seek out the service yourself.

2. Don’t share information by email

Email is one of the least secure forms of communication.

3. Read the privacy policy

Read the fine print of the bill pay service. It should mention strong data encryption and other measures of protection.

4. Don’t let it save your password

If the site offers to save your password, bypass the offer.

5. Log out

Always log out of your account after you’ve paid your bills so no one can access your information. This is especially important when using public computers.

Paying your bills online is a convenient and money-saving way of taking care of your payments. Just be sure to follow important safety measures!
