How You Help Protect Your Privacy

The Credit Union is committed to protecting the privacy of its members. Members can help by following these simple guidelines:

  • Protect account numbers, card numbers, Personal ldentification Numbers (PINs), Usernames, passwords, and answers to online banking security questions. A PIN should never be kept with an ATM/debit or credit card, which can provide access to accounts if the card is lost or stolen.
  • Use caution when disclosing account numbers and personal information including Social Security numbers to other persons by phone or email request. Official Credit Union staff will have access to information and will not need to ask for it.
  • Keep your information with the Credit Union current. If fraudulent or unauthorized activity or use of an account is detected, the Credit Union will attempt to contact the member immediately.
  • Inform the Credit Union if you have been the victim of fraud.
  • Utilize additional security features offered by the Credit Union to secure your account, such as the confidence image and image secret in online banking to authenticate your login to quorumfcu.org.
