Are Online Banks Safe?

Are Online Banks Safe? Yes! Here are 3 reasons why…

Reason #1: Secure Tech

Online banks’ mobile apps typically have:

  • 2-Step Authentication
  • Bank Alerts
  • Fraud Monitoring
  • Debit Card Lock via Mobile App

These mobile features can prevent criminals from stealing your hard-earned money.

Reason #2: No Wasted Paper

As digital organizations, online banks use less physical paper than traditional banks … Online banks use encrypted connections to send/receive:

  • Bank Statements
  • Bill Payments
  • Remote Check Deposits

Less paper means less unnecessary exposure of your private financial data.

Reason #3: Agile Team

Because digital banks are smaller than traditional ones, they’re quicker at adopting the latest security tech… New security tech helps online banks use sophisticated security measures that keep your data safe.

Bonus Reason! FDIC Insurance

Because online banks are FDIC-insured, your money is guaranteed for up to $250,000.

"I seriously love this bank. And no, this is not a paid review. They take the steps to prevent overdraft and prevent companies from pulling money out of any of your accounts unless you have given the bank permission to do so. They also have great fraud prevention."
