Our app utilizes 128-bit SSL encryption end to end to help protect your information. The app does not store any information on your device.

How do I make my mobile device as secure as possible?
Activate the screen lock function with a password that only you know. Treat your mobile device as you would a computer: Research Mobile Malware protection, and be cautious about texts or emails sent to your mobile device. When your phone is not in use, disable Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and make sure to only use trusted Wi-Fi access points.

How can I be sure my app information is secure if my mobile device is stolen?
You will be required to enter your MITFCU username and password each time you log

in to the app. If your mobile device is stolen, no one can access your app without your username and password. However, you should know how to remote wipe and remote lock your device in case it is ever stolen, or deactivate your device through your wireless service provider.

If your mobile phone number is used to verify your identity, remove it as an option until you have a new mobile device. Also, change your e-Branch password as an extra layer of security.
