Privacy Awareness

Attention: open in a new window. Print

We live in a rapidly changing digital world where our personal information is real value, just like money.

Here are a few tips that can make a difference to your digital privacy

 

1.      Check the machine

One of the most common ways a scammer will try to get access to your bank account is at the ATM. This is usually done by installing a ‘skimmer’ over the card reader, which captures the data on your card when you place it into the machine. The scammers then use that data to create a dummy card, which can also be used to access your account.

Always check before using ATMS especially if they aren’t owned by a bank looking for signs of:

·         Any signs of tampering

·         Anything that looks out of place

·         Anything that seems to move when touched

 

And always cover your pin!

 

2.      Keep your electronic software up to date.

Software updates may be pesky but they’re worth downloading. The latest versions often contain security updates to help defend your device against viruses, malware and other online threats that may pose a security threat to your personal finances.

3.      Log out every time

Closing a browser or typing over an address is not the same as logging out. Shut down apps when you’re not using them and make a habit of logging out of websites when you’re done. Most online banking applications automatically time out, but its cyber-smart to click ‘log out’ every time.

4.      Check your balance

Banks are usually quite effective at detecting suspicious activity on their customers’ accounts. But they're not perfect. So check your account balance regularly. When you do, go through your transactions and make sure they match up to what you’ve spent. If you have a joint account make sure your partner does the same.

Buying a property can be a stressful experience...

There's researching the market, looking for properties, attending open for inspections, dealing with real estate agents and ultimately putting in an offer or bidding at auction.

And if your offer or bid is unsuccessful, you then start the whole process again and again...

One of the most difficult parts in the property buying process is determining what a property is worth. 

You can do your research and follow the market but it still can be difficult, especially when you add competition from other interested buyers and negotiating with experienced real estate agents working for the seller.

To help you determine a property's value, we are offering a FREE RP Data property report.

These reports from property research company RP Data can tell you: -

  • The estimated value of the property
  • Sales history of the property
  • Details of recently sold properties in the area

These reports are invaluable in helping you determine a property's value and ultimately what you are prepared to pay.

Professional home loan advice and a FREE property report... Another reason to give us a call 1300 36 2000 or email us at mail@unitybank.com.au

Direct Charge Fee

Attention: open in a new window. Print

The CashCard ATM network, which forms part of our Direct Charge Fee Free ATM Access program, has been sold to DC Payments.

This network is currently being updated by DC Payments, and as a result some machines may no longer form part of the Direct Charge Fee Free program.

It’s important when using any ATM to refer to the screen confirmation regarding ATM fees charged at the time of your transaction to ensure you are enjoying the benefits of Direct Charge Fee Free ATM Access.  We will provide further advice regarding this matter over the coming months.

Remember, through our Direct Charge Fee Free program you have access to over 9700 ATMs at which you will not incur any unnecessary fees.
