The Internet Banking service has several effective security techniques that we encourage you to implement when you use Internet Banking.
- THSB will never e-mail or phone you to ask for your password, PIN, or any other personal information. If this ever happens, do not give out any personal information and please contact us immediately.
- Never reveal your password to anyone or leave your password anywhere that someone else can obtain and use it.
- Change your password on a regular basis.
- Use the Exit button to end each Internet Banking session. Do not use the Back button to exit the site.
- Change your session timeout in User Options to a time that meets your needs.
- Balance your account on a regular basis. Internet Banking makes it easy!
GMail Phishing Scam
There is a new scam where hackers send you a text that asks you about a password reset on your account. If you did not request a password reset, they tell you to respond with STOP. This is a scam. The bad guys asked for your password reset and now want you to send them the authorization code! Don't fall for it.
Remember, Gmail will never ask for confirmation to NOT make changes to your account. You didn’t ask for a password reset, so you shouldn’t be asked about one. Do not reply to the text (doing so will tell the scammers that they have reached a valid number). To prevent losing your account to bad guys, it's a very good idea to have 2-step verification set up on your Google account.
