Online Security Enhancements

We take your online safety and security very seriously. Because you have entrusted Wells Fargo Advantage Funds® with your investments, you have also entrusted us with your personal information. It's our job not only to help you achieve your investing goals, but also to take every step possible to safeguard and secure your personal data.

We have enhanced our online systems to further safeguard your personal information, increase account-related communication, and provide additional information to you when you view your accounts online.

While you may not see many of the enhancements that have been made, others are more noticeable. These enhancements include:

Display of Last Successful Log In
You will notice your last log in date and time in the upper-right corner of your online session. This serves not only as a reminder of your last log in, but helps to indicate if there has been unauthorized access to your account.

E-mail Notifications
You will receive e-mail notifications for transactions you perform online, changes to passwords or other security related information, password and log in locks due to failed log in attempts, and other online activities. This is in addition to any eDocument notifications, paper statements, or other letters from us that you may receive via U.S. Mail. It is very important to keep your e-mail address updated to ensure you receive these ongoing and timely communications.

Password Restrictions
We have changed the number of times that a password can be changed within a given time period. In addition, many clients have sent feedback regarding our somewhat difficult password format requirements. While they may be a bit restrictive and difficult for you to remember, they are designed to help safeguard your personal information.

No SSN/EIN Displayed
We have removed any references to your Social Security number or Employer Identification number, so they will never be displayed in your online session.

Security Testing and Monitoring
Our online systems are constantly tested and monitored to ensure that your information is never compromised.

Ongoing Safeguards
We continue to follow the procedures and policies that keep your information secure. These include allowing redemptions only to pre-authorized bank accounts or your home address, confirming address changes with letters to old and new addresses, and many more operational controls that you may never see.

We truly appreciate your ongoing investment with Wells Fargo Advantage Funds and your use of our Web site. If you have feedback at any time, contact us through our secure e-mail form.
