Our security measures are only a part of what it takes to make sure you're protected. It's your responsibility to use up-to-date software, and to enable security features such as anti-virus, anti-malware, and only connect from trusted networks.

Frequently Update Your Browser
You will need to update your web browser periodically to ensure that your interactions with not only the WEOKIE website but others are safe and secure—and to ensure an optimal experience. We recommend using the most up-to-date version of your web browser.
Setup Your Security Preferences in Online Banking
You can set your account security preferences any time in online banking. We use these security options to verify your identity.
Your 2-Step Verification Process
Two-factor authentication (2FA) requires a secondary verification method through a separate communication channel. 2FA improves cybersecurity because it makes hacking an account more difficult due to two separate channels that would need to be simultaneously compromised for an attacker to gain access. We provide this security through the following features:
Advanced mobile authentication
Advanced mobile authentication
Create a Stronger Password
You may be prompted to create a stronger password. If you have not done so, we encourage you to help protect your account security by setting a more secure password that meets the following requirements:
8-32 characters long
One upper case letter
One lower case letter
Either a special character or number
Does not contain your user name, real name, special dates or company name
Does not contain a complete word
Is significantly different from previous passwords
Additional Password Recommendations
Use the longest password you're comfortable using, password length adds significant security with every additional character. We recommend a minimum of 16 characters.
Combine letters (upper and lower), numbers, special characters to create your password, trying to avoid dictionary words and predictable patterns.
As always, use unique passwords across Internet services, especially financial services.
Choose a password you can remember without writing it down. If you do choose to write it down, store it in a secure location.
Mobile Device Security
Make sure you have a password setup to gain access into your device.
Avoid storing sensitive information on your mobile device, in the event that it gets lost or stolen.
Keep your mobile device’s software up-to-date.
Disable features not actively in use, such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and infrared.
Always do a “hard factory reset” to permanently erase all content before getting rid of your current device.
Sign out or log off when finished with an app, rather than just closing it.
Utilize antivirus software where applicable.
Maintain up-to-date antivirus protection provided by a reputable vendor.
Schedule regular scans or your computer.
Update your software frequently to ensure you have the latest security patches.
If you suspect your computer is infected with malware, discontinue using it for banking, shopping or other activities involving sensitive information.
Use firewalls on your local networks to add another layer of protection for all the devices that connect through the firewall.
Require a password to gain access. Log off or lock your computer when not in use.
It's a good idea to regularly monitor debit and credit transactions. You can sign up for transaction alerts for all of your banking accounts and credit cards. Setting up alerts in online banking is quick and easy – just click on Profile and go to Mange Alerts.
WEOKIE’s Credit Sense is a FREE service that provides ongoing credit score access, monitors your credit report for key changes and alerts all through your Online Banking account.
General Good Safety Practices
Review your credit report annually, at no cost, and without impact to your credit score. Order your annual credit report.
Monitor your active accounts with your existing financial institutions for fraudulent activity, such as new loans.
Educate yourself about current threats to consumers. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) provides helpful information. Visit the FTC website.
Practice good online habits by learning good password hygiene, how to verify websites, and how to ensure secure connections while using websites.
Stay aware! Scammers often use breaking news stories, such as massive data breaches or natural disasters, as opportunities to scam individuals. Verify phone calls, do not give out personal or financial information and watch out for phishing emails.
Never click on suspicious links in emails, posts or online advertising.
Only submit sensitive information to websites that use encryption. (the website address begins with “https:// rather than http://) The “s” on https is for secure.
Do not trust websites with certificate warnings or errors, this could mean your connection is being intercepted.
Avoid “Phishing” scams. You get an email that looks reputable but asks you to call a fraudulent number, respond to the email, or go to a website and enter personal information. Remember, no legitimate WEOKIE representative will ever ask you for your PIN or password by email. Should you give your personal information to a fraudster by mistake, file a complaint at FTC.gov/complaint.
