How is Harborstone helping to protect my accounts?

The security of our members' accounts and their personal information are our top priority. We would like to share what we are doing to help protect your account.

Here's what you should know:

  • All your Harborstone cards are protected against fraud, which means that you are not liable for unauthorized transactions you report to us.
  • You do not need to call us unless you see transactions you do not recognize. We are actively using our fraud-monitoring tools to look for and help us block abnormal transactions, spending, and ATM patterns.
  • We will let you know if we see unusual activity on your account.
  • We will send you a new card if we determine that to be necessary.
  • We regularly monitor Harborstone member accounts for unusual activity and encourage you to check your account activity using Online, Mobile, and Telephone Banking, as well as text and email alerts.
  • We will only call you to verify transaction information. If you receive a phone call from someone saying they are from Harborstone and asking for sensitive account information, please hang up and notify us immediately by calling the trusted Harborstone phone number.

Here's what you should do:

  • Continue using your Harborstone card(s).
  • Enroll in Harborstone's free Account Email Notifications or Mobile Text Banking by logging in to your Online Banking account, and we will let you know about specific activity in your account.
  • Switch to eStatements, get email alerts when your statement becomes available, and relax knowing your account information is safe and secure.
  • Familiarize yourself with Harborstone's Online Banking security standards.
