Online Safety Tips for Holiday Shopping

Protect your information, so you can enjoy the holidays!

Shopping in stores during the holiday season can be extremely frustrating and nerve-wracking! Online shopping has quickly become the norm for holiday shopping, making it convenient as ever to find what you are looking for. With only a few clicks you can have almost any type of gift delivered right to your door in a matter of days.  

Though convenient, shopping online can present certain risks pertaining to your information and money. It’s important to know someone has your digital back and here at Fidelity Bank & Trust we can protect your information, so you can enjoy your holidays!

“Monitoring your account is very important,” says Jill Heims, Operations Associate. “We (Fidelity Bank & Trust) offer online banking so you can check your account at anytime and Mobile banking lets you check it anywhere. Alerts can be set up through online banking to send you a text message for conditions you set yourself, for example, the balance drops below a certain amount or a transaction that is over a certain amount”.

Fidelity Bank & Trust has several different options to keep your account information safe, and you worry free!

“Mobile Wallet is becoming increasingly popular and can help protect your account information. The merchant does not actually get your account information so if their systems are compromised your information is not,” says Jill.

Jill says the Shazam Bolt$ app is convenient and helps secure your account.

“We also offer the free Shazam Bolt$ app, this lets you set alerts for your debit card transactions such as international transactions or card-not-present or online transactions. The app lets you place a temporary block on your card should you misplace it or suspect possible fraud”

This holiday season, trade your long shopping list for a more convenient way to spread cheer - utilizing Fidelity Bank & Trust's Mobile Banking to purchase your gifts and keep your information safe!  If you want to learn more about it, give us a call or contact us here
