UPDATE: GECU Customers You Need To Change Your Online Banking Password

Earlier this morning, I posted about changing your online banking password if you’re a GECU member.  Turns out, the El Paso Times got it wrong, and it was their story I quoted *shakes fist*.  I got a call from GECU with a clarification.  Read on….


The good thing is, there is nothing to worry about – no hacking incident, no identity theft – just some federal requirements that were put in place to help keep your money safe.

GECU says online passwords will need to be changed starting July 11th.  Your password is good UNTIL JULY 11th.  AFTER July 11th, when you log into the GECU SmartBranch, you will be prompted to change your password. GECU officials say your new password should not have your name, or a family member’s name, or a pet name.

It should also not include Social Security numbers, phone numbers, account numbers or birth dates.

 A listener called this morning and suggested using the first letters of your favorite movie line and then capitalizing every other letter or every third letter and then a number.  Mine would be FmDiDgAD2 – which stands for Frankly my dear I don’t give a damn, from Gone With The Wind.

Aw, crap, now I have to come up with another password…
