Two-Factor Authentication Phishing
Two-factor authentication is one of the most important controls we implement to protect the security of your information. However, recent social engineering attacks against two-factor authentication demonstrate that you can’t rely on technology alone. We have become aware of several incidents at other institutions in which criminals have tried to bypass the protection offered by two-factor authentication. The attacks employ phishing messages, fake login pages, and persuasive follow-up to induce the victim to give up an authentication code. PECU will never ask for your two-factor authentication code. If you are having difficulty or notice any suspicious activity on your account, please contact us and we will issue a new code to your email or mobile device immediately.
