Heartbleed Security Update

This week, an online security vulnerability known as “Heartbleed” was disclosed that potentially impacted a large number of sites on the Internet.

  • Personal Capital updated its site to close the vulnerability, and we have no indication of any unusual activity.
  • As an additional precaution, you may change your Personal Capital password and PIN.
  • If you change your passwords for other financial sites, remember to update your new passwords on Personal Capital.
  • Use Personal Capital to quickly review all transactions from all your financial accounts – log in yourself or use our daily monitoring email.  This provides an early warning system for suspicious activity in any of your accounts.

The likelihood of a problem is low, but caution is advised and our service makes it easy to monitor your accounts.
