Protecting Your Personal Information: What Not To Share Over The Phone

| January 29, 2024

In the continuous effort to raise awareness of your safety and online security, we're sharing important information about protecting your personal details. Today's topic is: what information should you never share over the phone?

You might receive phone calls from individuals claiming to represent a company or an organization, asking for your personal information. This is a common method used by fraudsters. It's essential never to disclose the following information over the phone:

  • Social Security Number
  • Bank account or credit card details
  • Personal Identification Numbers (PINs)
  • Passwords

Remember, legitimate organizations will never ask for these details over the phone. If you suspect a fraudulent call, hang up immediately. Stay safe and secure.
