Online Banking

My bank offers online bill paying and access to my account. Do you think it is safe to use?

Yes I think it is safe as long as you use good common sense. Don't display your password or pin numbers where others can see them, like on a post-it note stuck to your monitor. Do not have a text file with log-in information stored on your computer. If you can't remember passwords lock them up in another part of the house. Think it over before you sign up for this service, Do you really need this? I do not need this online banking and do not use it, but still I do think it is safe. If you sign up and find yourself not using it have you bank cancel it.
