Check the strength of your eBranch password with Wescom's Password Strength Tool.
A strong, hard-to-guess password—one you update on a regular basis but can easily remember—is one of your top defenses against banking and identity fraud. Ever since Wescom introduced eBranch, we’ve been encouraging members to use the most secure passwords possible, and now we’ve made it easier than ever to do so.
The next time you update your eBranch password, we’ll rate its strength to make sure you have the best protection against unauthorized access. We’re also providing some guidelines for writing passwords and achieving maximum effectiveness.
Your password can be 8 to 15 digits long and can include any combination of upper- or lower-case letters, numbers, and most special characters. The only characters not allowed are semicolon (;), colon (:), “at” sign (@), and tilde (~).
If you haven’t changed your password lately, take a minute to do so now. Just log on to eBranch select “Options” from the left-hand menu, choose the “eBranch Settings” option, then select “Update eBranch password.” A measuring bar will rate your password on a scale ranging from “Very Weak” to “Very Strong.”
Finally, when you update your eBranch password, be sure to also update your password within the Personal Finance Management applications or on websites such as Mint or Quicken.
