How First Service Protects You
What You Can Do
In a world of cyber hacking and unprecedented fraud, First Service Credit Union uses the latest tools and state-of-the-art defenses to keep you safe from predators. Your account’s security is our top priority.
Together with Visa®, we monitor your account for suspicious transactions and will notify you of any unusual activity. In some cases, your account may be placed on hold to safeguard you from fraudulent purchases. And don’t worry — you won’t be held accountable for any unauthorized transactions. We’re always watching, so you can’t rest easy.
Our online banking and mobile banking app are equipped with multilayer firewalls and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect your account. SSL is a cryptosystem that creates a secure environment for the information being transferred between your browser and First Service.
Multi-factor authentication is a verification process that helps secure access to your account by requesting more than one piece of information specific to you and your account. When you log in to online banking on a new device or browser, we'll confirm your identity by asking a security question and by sending you a one-time verification code that you can choose to have either emailed or texted to you.
EMV chip cards are the latest in card security. You can rest easy with the added protection of smart-chip technology, which makes it virtually impossible for a thief to create a counterfeit copy of your card.
As an added level of protection, First Service offers fraud text alerts for all credit and debit cards. We use the latest fraud-detection technology to spot unusual activity, and you will receive a text message within minutes if an unusual transaction should occur.
Take advantage of our other resources to help you manage and protect your accounts.
Digital payment services use a device-specific number, or a "token," instead of your actual card number, which keeps your transactions and information secure.
Text or email alerts can help you avoid fraud and identity theft by notifying you when important account activity occurs, such as withdrawals, debit card transactions, low balances, and more.
Set Up eAlerts
Stay safe and sign up to receive a text or email alert every time your Visa card is used to make purchase. This will give you real-time notifications to help you identify suspicious activity fast.
Give us a call at 713-676-7777 or 800-678-5197, and we can help you make sure your account is kept safe and secure.
