Darwin Horan- How to Enroll in Home Banking
Visit your bank's Web site and sign up for an account. You will need to provide some basic information, such as your checking account number, your Social Security number and your address. Make sure the Web site uses security measures before you give out important information.
If you don't a have a regular bank, you can find online institutions that can give you good interest rates and can help you set up an account either via Web chat or via toll free help
Memorize your password and/or authentication key. Never pass out this information to anyone else. If you need to write this info down to remember it, keep the document out of view, preferably in a secure filing cabinet.
Get information on the bank's additional services, which may include online bill paying and fast loan applications.
Ensure that the computers you use to access online banking are secure and up-to-date. Tech-savvy hackers can break into a poorly defended computer and actually watch you type your passwords. Use anti-spyware and anti-virus software as added levels of security on your computer.
