Kinetic Credit Union has substantial measures in place to protect you against theft and fraud. We offer our Rapport service to actively protect your online banking sessions, 256 bit data encryption and Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 protocol.
Identity theft is the fraudulent acquisition and use of a person's private identifying information, usually for financial gain. If you become a victim of identity theft, it can cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars, and take up to two years to repair your credit rating.
Fraudulent emails, text messages and phone calls are popular in identity theft crimes. Typically, these scams try to get people to provide their Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, usernames and passwords or other financial information.
Working alongside your current security software, it increases your protection and decreases your susceptibility to criminal behavior, protecting you from threats your anti-virus cannot. Trusteer Rapport verifies that you're connected to the credit union's actual website and creates a secure line of communication.
There is no such thing as perfect security. But no matter who you are or where you are in the world, there are a lot of things you can do -- many of which are simple.
