Before you head out to shop this holiday season download SecurLOCK™ Equip and have the peace of mind that comes with ultimate control. 

SecurLOCK™ Equip allows Homeland Credit Union Visa® debit and credit card the ability to receive real time alerts for card usage, turn on or off their cards in the event of fraud or if its misplaced, and allows you to set parameters on where your card can be used. Visit our Visa® web page to learn more. 

With the holidays coming up, it is important to remember:

  • Only use legitimate sites when shopping online
  • Always use a secure network
  • Be leery of skimmers
  • Limit what information you share online
  • Always review and check your statement and credit reports

Be sure your contact information is up to date so fraud alerts can be responded to promptly. You may also want to be mindful of what's arriving in your mailbox and shred any credit card, bank, or investment statements, as well as pre-approval notices or special offers.

Finally remember to use secure passwords on your banking websites, apps, social media accounts, and mobile devices.

We hope that these reminders keep you safe from fraud through the holiday season.
