Staying safe on social media

When using social media and managing your accounts online

  • Be careful what you share. Don't reveal any personal information like bank account details. The more you share online, the easier it is for fraudsters to steal your identity.
  • Think twice about who you’re speaking to. Fraudsters may try to befriend you online. If you don't know a person, or think they might be impersonating someone you know, avoid the conversation.
  • Use different passwords for each of your social media accounts and think about adding additional protection to your accounts, like setting-up two-factor authentication.
  • Click links with caution. Fraudsters may use hacked accounts to send harmful links. Look for unusual language or content in messages you receive. If something looks suspicious, contact the sender using a different method to check it's really them.
  • Be aware of privacy policies. Look at the privacy policies and privacy settings of the social media accounts you use. Use your privacy settings to control who sees what you post or can see your profile.

How we use social media

Our social media accounts are managed by Tesco Bank and we keep an eye on them 24/7. Our social media pages are public so anyone can see our tweets and posts, along with your tweets and posts to us. These tweets and posts may even show up in search engine results, like Google or Yahoo. You can control who can see your tweets or posts with your account settings in Twitter or Facebook.

We're always watching what people are saying about Tesco Bank on Twitter and Facebook to make sure we're part of the conversation.

We may reach out to customers directly when we see tweets or Facebook posts about our products and services. We may suggest a different way to talk to help with your questions or comments.

When we invite you to start a secure chat, we’ll ask for some personal information to identify you. Remember Tesco Bank (or any of our affiliates) will never ask you for your account information, passwords, PIN, or security information using Messaging, Twitter or Facebook.
