Information you submit via our online banking service is protected. It is important to verify that only authorized persons log into online banking. This is achieved by verifying your password. When you submit your Login ID and Password, it is compared with the information we have stored. You will also be prompted to receive a Secure Code to register your browser. The importance of this security feature is that should someone ever get your Login ID and Password information, they still cannot log into your online banking unless they are at your computer. This process is repeated if in the future you reset the Cookies on your browser.
We allow you to enter your password incorrectly a limited number of times; too many incorrect passwords will result in the locking of your online banking account until you call us to reinitialize the account. We record “bad-login” attempts to detect any suspicious activity (i.e. someone trying to guess your password).
