Navy Federal Credit Union members are asked never to click on a link to sign into their online accounts, they should instead, go directly to www.navyfederal.org and sign in from there. If there is something wrong or there is something that they need to do with their accounts, they will be notified or alerted right after signing in. Doing this will prevent them from clicking on links in fake email messages that go to phishing websites, which will prevent cybercriminals from stealing their information and gaining access to their accounts.

Note: The Navy Federal Credit Union will never send their customers an email message requesting banking credentials, personal and financial information. And, they will never send an email message with an attached form requesting the same sensitive information.
