Account Security We’re committed to keeping your account information safe, no matter how you access your money – whether using your Cadence Bank debit or credit cards, at an ATM or using checks.

Check Security

Check fraud continues to be a problem in the U.S. today. Criminals continue to find new and unique ways to manipulate checks in order to steal money from unsuspecting victims. Find out how we keep your account safe and ways you can protect yourself from check fraud.

How Cadence Bank protects your account from check fraud:

Online and Mobile Banking

Online and Mobile Banking

Using online and mobile banking, you can review transactions made on your account. Within online banking, you can also look at cleared check images (front and back) and set up account alerts to know when a check has cleared.

Password Strength

Use strong passwords and change them often. Don’t get in a habit of using the same username and password for everyday login use.

Mobile Wallet

You can set up most of your Cadence Bank accounts on your mobile wallet app of choice (Google Pay, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay or Masterpass), adding another layer of security when making in-person, in-app or online transactions.

Check Image Match

Cadence Bank’s checks have Image Match, which allows the bank to verify that the check’s front and back side images are from the same document during mobile deposits, minimizing endorsement forgeries.
How you can protect yourself from check fraud:
  • Set up banking alerts
    Use online banking to set up alerts to review cleared checks, let you know when your account balance falls below a certain limit, or when transactions clear your account.
  • Set up direct deposit
    Set up direct deposit to your account so you don’t have to worry about paychecks getting lost or stolen in the mail.
  • Utilize Bill Pay or ACH payments
    Pay bills automatically using Bill Pay or ACH payment. That way, you’ll always pay on time, avoid late fees, and eliminate using checks that may be susceptible to mail fraud.
  • Destroy canceled checks
    Unless you need to keep canceled checks for tax or other legal purposes, destroy them as soon as possible.
  • Review your transactions
    Review your check transactions, made either online or using your account statement, to make sure your check amounts match.
  • Have secure storage
    Store your checks, deposit slips, account statements and canceled checks in a secure and locked location.

ATM Safety

ATM Safety ATMs are a convenient way to get cash and make deposits; however, they can pose a safety hazard if criminals use them to steal from unsuspecting victims. Discover how Cadence Bank protects you when using an ATM and how you can protect yourself as well.

ATM Security

All Cadence Bank ATMs follow industry standards in ATM hardware security, placement and monitoring systems.
How you can protect yourself when using an ATM:
  • Beware of your surroundings
    If the ATM is poorly lit or concealed in some way, or if you just don’t feel comfortable for some reason, don’t use it.
  • Don’t count your cash while at an ATM
    Wait until you are safely inside your locked vehicle to do so.
  • Don't wait to report lost or stolen cards
    Immediately report a lost or stolen Cadence Bank debit or credit card by calling (888) 797-7711.
  • Memorize your PIN
    Never write it down. Also, guard the keypad when entering your PIN so no one can see it.
  • Beware of suspicious behavior
    If you notice anything suspicious while using the ATM, cancel your transaction and leave immediately. Report your concerns to the police and/or ATM owner.
  • Take your ATM receipt with you
    Your receipt may contain personal information that might be helpful to criminals.
  • Lock your car doors and roll up all windows not in use
    When using a drive-thru ATM, lock your car doors and roll up all windows not in use. If you walk up to the ATM, don't leave your car running or unlocked.
  • Don't store important items in your car
    Never leave your ATM, debit or credit cards in your car’s glove compartment.
  • Don't allow strangers in indoor ATM locations with you
    When using an indoor ATM that requires your card for access, don’t let others you don’t know in with you.
  • Inspect the ATM for skimmers
    Pay particular attention to how the ATM card reader looks and feels. If the card reader is loose, don’t use the ATM.
