NEW: Online Storage With Safety You Can Trust

APCO Credit Union is pleased to introduce My Virtual StrongBox, an added feature of Online Banking.

You have major life events — births, marriages, mortgages, cars, wills – that each have an important document attached. Storing and protecting those documents can be a hassle, especially when the sensitive information they contain can help you in an emergency.

My Virtual StrongBox lets you access your information when it’s most needed. You can keep copies of medical histories, insurance information, titles, deeds, tax information — all at your fingertips.

 

Your Online Safe

You may ask why you should store documents in My Virtual StrongBox when other ‘cloud storage’ providers offer more space. The answer is security.

Think of your favorite cloud storage provider (Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.) as a garage. It holds a lot is convenient, but do you trust it to keep your most precious documents and important records?

My Virtual StrongBox is more like a safe or a safety deposit box — it offers just enough storage for CRITICAL files, backed by our promise of total information privacy. Only YOU can read and use files you’ve stored in the system, and only YOU have the keys to open your account.

Your documents are protected by several layers of security, including:

  • Multi-factor authentication
  • Secure, protected servers
  • Encrypted file uploads

My Virtual StrongBox is only available to members who have signed up for Online Banking (learn how to sign up here at apcocu.org.)
