Unlike other online accounts, I wouldn’t use online forms to try to get back a hacked bank account. Call the bank or visit your local bank branch immediately.

The bank will work with you to change the password and reverse any fraudulent charges. You may have to open up a new account, though.

While you’re there, ask about using additional verification features. Most banks have a system that lets you verify any major charge before it’s made.

For any online account, a little preparation beforehand makes your account much harder to crack. Check your online account’s security settings often.

Make sure you have a rock-solid password and strong security question to keep hackers out.
