Eaton Community Bank commitment
Eaton Community Bank has always had the utmost commitment to protecting customer data and personal information. Hackers and identity thieves are constantly looking for ways to exploit and steal financial information from consumers. This has become even more pervasive with the COVID-19 pandemic. With the rollout of Eaton’s new brand and website, we’ve enhanced customer security with the switch to a .bank domain.
What’s in a domain?
There are many domains across the internet; with .com and .net being some of the most common ones available. However, there are also many specialty domains available to specific types of businesses and institutions.
A .bank domain is a licensed domain that is only available to verified and vetted financial institutions. Only verified members of the banking industry can register for a .bank domain and must therefore undergo a higher level of scrutiny.
The .bank portion of Eaton Community Bank’s new website, www.eaton.bank, ups the ante in terms of security for users of our site. It essentially eliminates the risk of phishing (spoof sites posing as the bank’s site).
When you use www.eaton.bank, you have the peace of mind and confidence of knowing that you are on our real website and your sensitive information is safe and secure.
Should I not trust .com website?
Most .com websites remain safe, however, anyone can secure a .com domain. Since our .bank domain is available exclusively to financial institutions, it provides users an additional level of security. This is paramount when dealing with personal financial information.
Regardless of which websites you visit, it’s extremely important to be diligent in protecting your personal information.
