Tips to Protect Yourself in a Digital World

TowneBank will use email to keep our members informed of current events, safe online practices, product and service updates.  We have taken great strides to protect your privacy and will never request personal information such as account number, social security number, or passwords.  If you have received an email that appears to be suspicious please contact your local banker by phone.

Quick Tips to keep your Inbox Safe and Secure

  • Be suspicious of any email that requests an urgent response with your personal information
  • Consider adjusting your email settings so images are not automatically downloaded 
  • Only open email attachments if you are expecting them and know what they contain
  • Do not open any emails or click on links that ask for your personal information
