Member Services security information
Our commitment to ensuring the security of information you provide us in Member Services.
Member number and password
Access to Member Services is controlled using your 8 digit ahm member number and password. Please make sure that you keep your member number and password secure, as any action performed on OMS using your member number will be treated as yours. If you think someone else may know your password, you should change your password as soon as possible.
Updating your details
ahm will NEVER:
- call or email you asking you for your Member Services password.
- send you an email asking you to verify your online member details. Any email asking you to verify or confirm your account details or using a similar form of words, is most likely a phishing scam.
What is ‘Phishing’?
Phishing is the act of attempting to gain information such as usernames, passwords, and other personal or sensitive information by acting as a trustworthy organisation via electronic communication. Phishing often directs users to enter details on a fake website which looks and feels almost identical to the legitimate one.
If you think you may have received a phishing email, please forward the entire email with full header information (some email clients allow this with an option of sending as an attachment) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
