Member Security Essentials

Protecting your accounts is a top priority for Navy Federal. Whether you bank on your mobile* device or online, your personal data could be vulnerable to identity theft and other attacks. Using state-of-the-art fraud prevention systems, our dedicated staff constantly monitors your accounts for suspicious activity.

A strong username and password provide extra security for
your account.

Here are some tips for creating strong sign-in credentials:

  1. Choose a unique username that you don't use for any other site (and one that can't be guessed easily).
  2. Use a combination of letters (both capital and lower case), numbers and special characters (like "&" or "%") for your password.
  3. Never use personally identifiable information like name, birth date, Social Security Number, or email address.
  4. Never use common dictionary words.
