Don't Share Credentials, Just "Share Access"
Do you have a trusted adviser (i.e. accountant, family member, etc.) or a third-party web service (i.e. Mint, a fraud monitoring service, etc.) that you would like to grant access your bank accounts? But providing your Online Banking credentials is not a safe or convenient. Here are just a few reasons why you should never share your username and password anyone:
- Managing the password between two individuals is difficult and frustrating.
- Our security verifies users via emails, text and/or a phone call.
- 1st Source expects that your online/mobile email and phone numbers are yours alone.
- Credentials could be compromised at a third-party which opens your account up to others.
Therefore, don't share your credentials, just "Share Access" to your Online Banking. 1st Source allows you to create another user profile based on the accounts and services you want. You can provide this user access to only one account, two accounts or all accounts. You can set whether this user can transfer funds between account and access your bill pay with a specified limit. If they exceed your limit, you will be emailed informing you and the right to approve their request within your bill pay. If you have this need, try it today.
