Internet Security Tips from First Internet Bank

First Internet Bank sent me an e-mail with some helpful security tips:

  • Always download apps for your Apple or Android device from the Apple store or Google Play. Avoid installing apps from pop-ups or an untrusted third-party source.
  • Pay close attention to the toll-free phone numbers you call. Scammers are obtaining phone numbers that are different from legitimate numbers by one digit, setting up automated answering systems with an institution’s name and offering free gifts, vacations and gift cards when callers provide debit or credit card information.
