TouchBanking Update!

TouchBanking New Features

Check out the latest updates to our TouchBanking app! To ensure that you are updating the TouchBanking app appropriately, you will begin receiving upgrade reminders shortly after the app release.

Redesigned Accounts Landing Page

TouchBanking has redesigned the Accounts landing page to offer better at-a-glance access to account balances, while also highlighting the best new functionality of the TouchBanking app. After you sign in to the downloadable app, your first stop is the redesigned Accounts landing page that highlights your first three accounts and your balances.

In the event that you have more than three accounts, a bar labelled Show all my accounts appears just below the top three. When you tap Show all my accounts, the Accounts screen appears, which allows you to choose the accounts that you want in your top three, as well as reorder your accounts. The app cannot display more than three accounts on the redesigned Accounts landing page. However, you always have access to all accounts by tapping Show all my accounts.

Accounts Page With Quick Links Introduction Screen

Upon signing in to the TouchBanking 17.2 app for the first time, the app presents you with the new Account Page With Quick Links introduction screen. This screen explains the redesigned Accounts landing page and how to customize the accounts that you see on it.

User Experience Enhancements

We are introducing the following changes to enhance the user experience:

Click to Call

We have added the Call button to user prompts in the app that suggest users contact your financial institution. When you tap the Call button on a device with the ability to perform calls, the device initiates a call to our Audubon Savings Bank support number indicated in the message.

Enhanced Instant Balance Pop-Up Box

We have made the following enhancements to the Instant Balance popup box:

  • Information bar at the top displays the local date and time that the app retrieved the balance.
  • App sorts the accounts according to your preferences established for the redesigned Accounts landing page.
  • Available balance now appears for each account.
  • Additional helper now appears below the list of accounts.

Security Check for Android Devices

We have updated the Android TouchBanking apps with the 17.2 app release with the ability to detect settings that could compromise the device’s security. The app presents the following message to Android device users who have the Unknown sources option toggled on, thereby allowing their device to install apps from sources other than Google Play:

“Your device is currently configured to allow installation of apps from unknown sources. This may pose a security risk.

Please go to Security settings and un-tick ‘Unknown sources’.”

You may tap the Security Settings button on this message to go directly to the Unknown sources setting in the device’s security options and toggle it off.

Equifax Breach May Impact 143 Million Americans

Equifax Breach

Equifax, one of the “big-three” U.S. credit bureaus, said today a data breach at the company may have affected 143 million Americans, jeopardizing consumer Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and some driver’s license numbers.

In a press release Sept 7,2017 , Equifax [NYSE:EFX] said it discovered the “unauthorized access” on July 29, after which it hired an outside forensics firm to investigate. Equifax said the investigation is still ongoing, but that the breach also jeopardized credit card numbers for roughly 209,000 U.S. consumers and “certain dispute documents with personal identifying information for approximately 182,000 U.S. consumers.”

Equifax said the attackers were able to break into the company’s systems by exploiting an application vulnerability to gain access to certain files. It did not say which application or which vulnerability was the source of the breach.

Equifax has set up a Web site — https://www.equifaxsecurity2017.com — that anyone concerned can visit to see if they may be impacted by the breach. The site also lets consumers enroll in TrustedID Premier, a 3-bureau credit monitoring service (Equifax, Experian and Trans Union) which also is operated by Equifax.

According to Equifax, when you begin, you will be asked to provide your last name and the last six digits of your Social Security number. Based on that information, you will receive a message indicating whether your personal information may have been impacted by this incident. Regardless of whether your information may have been impacted, the company says it will provide everyone the option to enroll in TrustedID Premier. The offer ends Nov. 21, 2017.

It is best practice to not only have a credit monitoring service but to also place a security freeze on your records.More information on the difference between credit monitoring and a security freeze (and why consumers should take full advantage of both) can be found in this story: https://krebsonsecurity.com/2015/06/how-i-learned-to-stop-worrying-and-embrace-the-security-freeze/

We also recommend that your regularly visit krebsonsecurity.com to keep abreast of security issues that may impact your personal records.
