Privacy & Security
Fifth Third Bank takes the security and safety of our customers' personal and confidential information very seriously, and your trust in us is extremely important. We want to do what we can to help you guard against any disclosure of personal or financial information that could lead to the unauthorized use of your account or to identity theft.
Fifth Third is aware of the recently disclosed Heartbleed vulnerability. Fifth Third websites, including 53.com and Fifth Third Direct, are not directly vulnerable to Heartbleed. As a general best practice, customers are advised to use a unique password on all websites, including online banking, and should change it frequently. The reason for this is if you use the same password for online banking as you do for other websites that are vulnerable to the Heartbleed vulnerability and your password is compromised on another site, it could then potentially be used to access the your accounts on 53.com.
Fifth Third Bank offers additional information on using our websites and the technology we employ to keep you, your accounts and your identity safe.
