Communicating with BMO Harris
PROTECT Message Center and Email Encryption
At BMO Harris, your security is our top priority. Our PROTECT Message Center lets you confidently receive and send emails including attachments sent by your BMO Harris representatives, knowing your personal information is secure.
Here’s what makes it so secure: our email encryption service scrambles your personal, financial or confidential information, and then transmits and stores it for up to 90 days in a format that is only accessible to those with the correct user ID and password.
To ensure the highest level of security, you must first receive a protected email from us inviting you to join before you can use the PROTECT Message Center. It’s easy to spot these emails—just look for the word “PROTECT” in the subject line. Then, simply log in to the PROTECT Message Center to read your email and view any attachments from home or when you’re on the go.
