This is always a good question to ask, Brittany. Account security is paramount and we'd be glad to help keep your information safe.
As a financial institution, we don't recommend sharing your account information with anyone that you aren't comfortable with. You're the first line of defense when it comes to your account!
If someone owes you funds and you would prefer to keep your account number private, you can request funds from them using Send Money! To do so, sign into your Online Banking here: http://go.td.com/1eaISlq and select the Send Money tab. If you haven't done so already, you'll need to create the individual as a contact by selecting Add New Contact. Once complete, select Request and fill out the amount. After this request is sent, the individual should be able to complete the transfer. As an added bonus, your account information stays private!
A party is able to visit a TD Store to make a deposit to your account as well. If they do visit a TD Store, they would be required to have either your account number to complete the request. There are times that a Teller is able to look up your account by name however the person making the deposit will need to be able to identify you in some way such as by providing your date of birth.
TD Bank accounts are also able to receive wires for more substantial deposits. For wires you'd need to provide the sender with your name (as it appears on your account), your account number and the following:
TD Bank, N.A.
In addition to the alternatives we mentioned, we encourage you to take a look at our Security Center found here: https://go.td.com/1npPddy. This page reviews our commitment to you as a Customer as well as tips and tools you're able to use to keep your banking secure.
If you have any questions or if you'd like to continue this discussion with a Specialist, feel free to call us 24/7 at 888-751-9000.
We hope that this information helps and sets your mind at ease, Brittany. Take care.
