At Founders, we take our responsibility of protecting your information very seriously. You’ve probably seen a number of stories in the news about recent data breaches, or fallout from previous hacks (like this one at Equifax).

Please take a moment to review the information below to be informed as to what you can do to protect yourself from fraud, and how we’re helping keep your information safe:

  • Change your passwords—take this opportunity to refresh your old passwords. Strong, unique passwords for all of your logins can help keep your accounts safe!
  • Check your credit—credit monitoring agencies are required by law to provide you with a free copy of your credit report, at your request, once every 12 months. Visit www.annualcreditreport.com to get your free credit report.
  • Freeze your credit—if you think you could be the victim of Identity Theft, it’s important to alert the major credit bureaus right away. Contact them here.
  • Be alert—you are the best line of defense against fraud. If something seems suspicious on your account, report it immediately. We are here to help! Remember, Founders will NEVER contact you for your personal information.

Founders has resources working around the clock to make sure your money and information are safe and secure! We also have a helpful guide with great resources for you to inform and educate yourself. For more information on security, click here.
