Keep Your Information Safe


New computer viruses are created daily and used to expose security holes in your computer's operating system and software. Viruses can affect your computer's ability to operate correctly and even allow outside sources to access the information stored in your hard drive or in your personal settings, including sensitive personal information.



Updates are created and issued frequently to protect your computer as new viruses are developed. It is important to install these updates regularly to ensure that your computer is protected.



Maintain Your Computer's Security

Be sure that your web browser is up-to-date. An updated browser will enhance your web browsing experience and be more secure.


An important thing to check is your TLS setting. TLS is a security setting that encypts information on a secure site, ensuring that no third-party can see or interfere with the information transmitted between you and the website you're visiting. TLS 1.0 is becoming quickly outdated with browser support in decline. By updating your TLS settings to TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2, you're staying up-to-date with the latest security protocols.

  • Google Chrome
    • Open Google Chrome
    • Click Alt F and select “Settings”

    • Scroll down to the Network section and click on “Change proxy settings…”
    • Select the “Advanced” tab
    • Scroll down to the “Security” section
    • Locate and check “Use TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2”
    • Then, click “OK”
  • Internet Explorer
    • Open Internet Explorer
    • Click Alt T and select “Internet Options”
    • Select the “Advanced” tab
    • Scroll down to the “Security” section
    • Locate and check “Use TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2”

  • Firefox
    • Open FireFox
    • Type in “about:config” in the URL bar and press Enter

    • Then, press the “OK” button.
  • Safari

  • Edge


More quick security tips:

  • Be sure to update your security settings.
  • Install anti-virus, anti-spyware, and firewall protection software.
  • Check for updates for your software frequently. Enable automatic updates for your operating system and protection software whenever possible to ensure that your software is updated as the updates are released.
  • Don't open email attachments if you don't know what they are. Viruses can send an email that appears to be from a trusted contact when it actually contains a virus meant to compromise your computer.
  • Password-protect documents that contain sensitive information, such as account numbers, passwords, and card numbers.

Malware, short for malicious software, is designed to infiltrate a computer system without the owner's consent. Malware includes computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, rootkits, spyware, adware, and other malicious and unwanted software. If you notice that websites are performing in unexpected ways—for example, being redirected to a webpage requesting your credit card information and PIN information while trying to access ComputerLine—your computer may be infected with malware.

Some computer virus scanning software won’t detect all types of malware so be sure to use malware scanning software to help detect and remove malware from your computer. Malware can be difficult to remove from your computer, and it's recommended that you download and install at least two different malware removal programs. Two free malware removal programs* are Malwarebytes and SpyBot Search & Destroy. Run both programs, reboot your computer, and then run both programs again to help ensure the removal of malware. You may also want to change your online passwords using a different computer that was not infected with malware.

If your financial or personal information has been compromised via malware, please contact MSUFCU immediately so we can take steps to safeguard your account.
