Important Notice Regarding the Heartbleed Vulnerability

We have researched this matter and Fidelity's customer sites and services do not use the versions of the technologies affected by this issue and remain safe to use.

It's always a good practice not to use the same password for multiple sites. Since some Internet sites are affected by this vulnerability, if you do use common passwords for multiple sites, please take the time to update and change your passwords appropriately, including changing the password you use for Fidelity.
