Freedom Bank of America considers the security of your financial information a top priority. We take numerous measures to ensure a safe and reliable online experience.
The first level of security is password protection. To gain access to accounts, users must verify their identity with a password. Freedom Bank of America will never ask you to disclose your password.
The second level of security is firewall protection. All Freedom Bank of America systems are protected with firewalls that limit access to only those customers providing the proper user I.D.’s and passwords.
The third level of security is 128 bit key SSL encryption. Before data is exchanged between the customer and the bank, it is encoded or scrambled with 128 bit key SSL encryption.
Internet Security Tips
