We want you to feel confident when banking online that your personal information is safe and secure. Listed below are several effective security tips you can use to help mitigate your risk and to better protect yourself and your financial information.
To learn more about information security, visit www.onguardonline.gov.
Some of the security alerts associated with Online Banking are mandatory such as password changes, invalid password attempts, and browser registration. All of our alerts can be sent by email, SMS text, and voice.
Ireland Bank strongly encourages you to review the optional alerts and select any additional alerts that you feel would keep you better informed of the activities associated with your Online Banking.
Security and Account Alerts are located in your Online Banking and can be modified at any time by clicking:
Settings > Alerts
Choose the type of alert you would like to receive, add the necessary information, how often you want to receive the alert, and the method of delivery.
Scams come in many forms, such as “phishing” emails, fraudulent text messages, and phone calls. These all have the same goal – the unauthorized use of your information.
It is very important for you to know that Ireland Bank will NEVER ask you to send your account information over email. Do not reply to emails that ask for your account information. Do not give your account information to phone solicitors or provide your credit card or debit card number online. Ireland Bank will never call or email you for that information – we already have it.
Many banks across the nation and The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) have reported several email scams that appear, on the surface, very realistic. These emails often contain logos and verbiage that are designed to convince you that they are from a bank or the government. These emails can contain hyperlinks and/or infected attachments. They are designed to collect personal or confidential information, or to pass virus software to your computer system.
A representative will contact you before the end of our next business day.
Thank You for your submission.
