07/25/2017: Online Banking – Everybody’s Doing It, Why Not You?

If you’ve been considering online banking, as the old saying goes, there’s no better time than the present. Many are turning to doing their banking online, as more people across America have access to the Internet. In a 2015 study by Pew Research Center, 69 million Americans were banking online, with a significant number banking via Smartphone. Millennials are leading the trend toward online banking, but as technologies becomes more accepted by and used among older generations, keeping track of accounts via the Internet will flourish – and likely become the norm.

Of course, the main objection many people have to online banking is security. Their concern is, hackers who want to steal their money – and possibly even their identity – can easily access their accounts. In a Huffington Post article, banking security expert Greg Meyer offers that, “Online banking systems in the U.S. are built tough, they don’t bend easily to hackers.” He goes on to explain that banks, credit unions and the like use encryption and advanced security software that has been tested to ensure it is hack-proof. Meyer also offered that financial institutions constantly monitor online banking units, blocking account access and notifying the user of any suspicious activity. Advances in technology mean that online banking is more secure than ever.
