Prevent Identity Theft
Please use caution if you receive any e-mails that ask you to provide confidential information or to click links to visit web pages that ask you to provide confidential information. This practice is known as "phishing," and many of these fraudulent e-mails may appear to be from an official or trusted source.
We at Clackamas County Bank would never send e-mails asking you to provide confidential information via e-mail. Clicking links from these e-mails could place malicious files or applications on your computer.
Website and Online Banking Security
How we protect your information online.
We have taken many precautions to ensure your personal banking information is secure when you bank online including, but not limited to:
Encryption – We use encryption to ensure our website and online banking platforms are authentic and protected.
Usernames and Passwords – Online Banking requires strong usernames and passwords to protect your account. We recommend you choose passwords that would be difficult for others to guess and avoid reusing your bank password at other sites. Our website has links to tips on creating strong passwords.
Enhanced Multi-factor Authentication – Online Banking uses an extra layer of security that asks you to validate yourself by sending yourself a text, email or phone message to validate yourself when you login using an unfamiliar computer.
Secure Email – All email you send to us from within Online Banking is sent securely to protect your sensitive personal information. If you send us a question from within Online Banking, we will respond securely within the "Messages" section of Online Banking. We do not send personal information via non-secure email.
