Security

At WSFS Bank we’re prioritizing your security, whether you are using one of our digital channels, banking by phone or in person at one of our banking offices. We use a variety of security solutions and tools to keep you secure. Various monitoring systems watch activity across the internet to detect out-of-pattern activity to identify and prevent fraudulent transactions and quickly notify WSFS personnel when detected. This gives us the ability to act against any attacking domain. Though we provide secure online banking sessions, we recommend you follow best practices for online banking and steps to help protect your computer and mobile devices.
