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.
