SecureCode

    SecureCode is a service offered by Security Federal that provides greater peace of mind when you shop on line by providing added protection against unauthorized use of your debit card.  Once you've registered and created a SecureCode, each time you make an online purchase, a window will pop up asking for your SecureCode, just like using a PIN at the ATM. When you correctly enter your SecureCode, it confirms that you are the authorized cardholder and your purchase is completed. No code, no confirmation, no purchase.

    You can reference the SecureCode Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and register your card with SecureCode by clicking here or on the picture to the left.  Otherwise, you will have an opportunity to register when you are making your next online purchase.

Phishing Alert

    There is a new phishing scam claiming to be from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and is trying to get peoples' personal information.  The fraudulent e-mail appears to be from "consumeralerts@fdic.gov" and the subject of the e-mail is "you need to check your Bank Deposit Insurance Coverage".  The e-mail also includes a link to a counterfeit site.  When the link is clicked, the user is taken to a site similar to the FDIC page, and is asked to verify personal information. To make matters worse, when the link is clicked, the page also automatically downloads at least two malicious pieces of software.  If you receive this fraudulent e-mail, DO NOT click on any of the links...just simply delete the e-mail.

    For more information about protecting yourself, please visit our Customer Awareness page.

Trickin' and Treatin'

    Like last year, Security Federal employees had a luncheon to raise money for Kids Of The Community so we can sponsor a child for Christmas.  So we did it again this year...and we raised enough to sponsor two children!  Thanks to everyone that helped out and had lunch with us!

   And, of course, there were costumes too.  Click here or on the neon pumpkin to see some pictures.

SecureCode Requirement

    SecureCode is a service that has been offered by Security Federal on a voluntary basis that provides greater peace of mind when you shop on-line by providing added protection against unauthorized use of your debit card.  Once you've registered and created a SecureCode, each time you make an on-line purchase, a window will pop up asking for your SecureCode, just like using a PIN at the ATM. When you correctly enter your SecureCode, it confirms that you are the authorized cardholder and your purchase is completed. No code, no confirmation, no purchase.

    Starting in mid-January, SecureCode will be required for Security Federal debit cards when used for on-line purchases.  You can reference the SecureCode Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and register your card with SecureCode by clicking here or on the picture above.  Otherwise, you will have an opportunity to register when you are making your next online purchase.
