Virtual Account Numbers…

A FREE security tool available in Account Online generates an account number that's good for one merchant only.

 

Protection—

When you don't use your real account number, nobody has a chance to steal it.

 

Control—

Virtual Account Numbers generates an account number that's good for one merchant only. With advanced features, you can set dollar and timeframe limits on payments. The transactions appear on your regular statement.

 

Convenience—2 ways to access and use this helpful feature when you shop online:

 
  • Download the tool once to your computer to automatically generate an account number.

    OR…

  • Launch it each time by signing on to Account Online and selecting the Virtual Account Numbers box in the upper right corner.

 

Please Note:

Virtual Account Numbers cannot be used for purchases that require you to show your credit card at time of pick-up (e.g., movie tickets, etc.), because the account numbers will not match.

 

So easy to use, you may never shop online with your real account number again!
