How do I sign in on my personal banking account


If you are asking how to sign into your bank account online and you have never done this before, the first thing you will need to do is go to your banks website and register your account. This means you will have to fill out your contact information, (name, address, telephone number, possibly your ssn etc.) then you will most likely be asked to set up a user name and password and choose a security question and answer, possibly 2 or 3 questions and/or answers. Most banks have already got any/all accounts that are tied to you as identified by your ssn and/or dl # so once you have completed the registration you will have access to all the accounts that you have with that particular financial institution immediately after signing in. (ie: checking, savings, auto loan, mortgage loan, etc) As with any other website registration, you will want to write down your user name and password and keep them in a safe place. Never save them in an electronic document on your computer even if your computer is password protected. Hackers can easily find those secret documents and use all the info to wipe out any savings or credit accounts and get more credit in your name. They can assume your identity in a matter of hours or minutes and be half way across the country before you discover the very first clue that you've been robbed!
