Keeping Your Account Safe
Branch is committed to ensuring the safety and security of our customer's personal information, account access, and funds. Our debit card and accounts have multiple layers of security built in already to protect you in your day to day financial life, but there are a few things you can do to ensure the security of you account over time.
