Risks of Spyware To Your Privacy
The term “spyware” refers to technologies that collect information about a computer user without their knowledge and report that information to a third-party. Certain forms of spyware can intercept sensitive and confidential information including passwords, account numbers and other identifying data.
OptimumBank encourages all customers, especially those using their computers for online banking, to learn how to detect the presence of spyware and prevent it from installing. These steps typically include;
- Installing and updating anti-spyware, virus protection and firewall software.
- Adjusting browser settings to prompt you whenever a web site tries to install a new program or Active-X control.
- Carefully reading all software licensing agreements (EULA’s) and avoid downloading software when they are unclear.
- Maintaining patches and security updates to operating systems and browsers.
- Not opening e-mail from untrustworthy sources.
