Preventing Fraud

Prevention methods carry the most impact in combating and reducing identity fraud. PNC Security Assurance offers PNC Consumer and Business Banking checking and card customers a comprehensive suite of products, services and account features to help prevent or deter incidents of fraud and identity theft, including:

  • Verified by Visa® - for Consumer debit and credit cardholders. Protect yourself and your identity when shopping online with Verified by Visa.
  • Online Banking security components such as layered security.
  • Online Statements - Protect yourself against fraud and identity theft by receiving your PNC Bank statements online rather than through the mail.
  • Extended Validation Secure Socket Layer (EV SSL) certificates - PNC uses EV SSL certificates which work with high security browsers, to help you recognize when you are at the legitimate PNC site and not a "spoofed" site created by fraudsters for purposes of illegally obtaining your personal and financial information.
  • PNC Privacy Policy - and our proactive security team which is constantly identifying new threats and implementing appropriate protections to safeguard our customers' personal and account information.


Information about identity theft and safeguarding your personal information are two of the best ways to protect yourself and your business.
