Why send a secure email?

Northwest Bank offers its customers the ability to send a secure email to us. Our easy-to-use email protection makes it seamless for you to receive, read and reply to all encrypted email communication we send you. The protection of confidential communication is important to us and we want to ensure your information stays private.

By itself, Internet email is not a secure communications channel. Messages sent via standard Internet email travel in "plain text" and cross many networks before reaching their final destination. As a result, an opportunity exists for prying eyes to eavesdrop on email messages as they traverse these various networks. Since confidentiality cannot be guaranteed, standard Internet email should not be used to exchange sensitive or private information such as social security numbers, bank account numbers, financial statements, etc.
