Good practices to adopt

Check that you are on a secure site

In your internet browser’s address bar, check the spelling of the website address.

Use a strong password

It is essential to know how to choose a strong password, i.e. a password that is difficult for a third party to find/discover (e.g. do not use your date of birth).

Think before clicking on a link

One of the classic attacks aimed at scamming internet users and stealing their personal information consists of encouraging them to click on a link within a message. These links may be malicious. Rather than clicking on the link, you should type the website address into your browser’s address bar.

Be careful if you see a suspicious email address and/or before opening an attachment

One of the most effective methods of spreading malicious software is to use email attachments. To protect yourself from this risk, never open an attachment from someone you don’t know.

Be careful about disclosing personal information

It is strongly recommended that you never disclose personal data orally, in writing or by email. Never enter personal/sensitive data (such as bank account details) on websites that do not offer all the necessary guarantees.

Please note that Societe Generale will never write to you at your personal email address to ask you to connect to your secure site and/or ask for the password/PIN code for your bank accounts/bank cards.
