How does ECCU protect my child and their information?


Start Young accounts include all the security ECCU has to offer. We encourage you to review our privacy policy to confirm we do not share your or your child's personal information.

But as with all technology and digital transactions, the best way to help protect your child from fraud is to ensure they know how to safeguard their personal information. We encourage parents to teach and remind children of common online security practices such as:

  • Not sharing their information including social security number, account number, address, date of birth, etc.
  • Only using their debit card on sites that are safe or have been verified
  • Creating strong passwords and using unique passwords for different online accounts
  • Logging out of online banking or the app plus closing the browser or app when done
