You may disable or remove cookies by accessing your web browser settings. Our Sites will still function without cookies, but some features may not work properly.

8. Data Sharing
Although Navy Federal does not share your Personal Information with nonaffiliated third-party companies, we are aware that you may choose to do so in order to use their services. For example, you may have authorized some third-party companies to access your Personal Information and account data to offer financial information and services such as: account aggregation (consolidating your financial account information from different sources), making payments via a website or mobile application, and tax preparation. Because these third-party companies have access to your Personal Information and account data and may use your account login credentials in order to provide the service, we recommend that you use caution when granting such access to these types of third-party companies.
When you provide your login credentials to your Navy Federal accounts to a third party, you will be deemed by us to have authorized all transactions or actions initiated by that third party using the access information you provided, whether or not you are aware of the specific transaction or action.
If you decide to revoke the access authority you previously gave to a third party, we strongly recommend that you change your Navy Federal password to ensure that the party cannot continue to access your account. For security and other reasons, Navy Federal reserves the right to block or disable third-party access to any account without notice.
