Secure Sign On
Secure Sign On adds another level of Security to Online Banking, offering further protection from online fraudulent activity.
Secure Sign On protects you from identity theft and fraud in two ways:
You will know you are in the right place: Secure Sign On provides you with visual cues when you sign on, so you know that you are on our Website
and it is safe to enter information. This will help you protect yourself from fraudulent look-alike sites.
We will know it's really you: Secure Sign On helps us ensure that only authorized individuals can access financial information online.
How Secure Sign On lets you know you are in the right place
During the set up process, you will choose a picture from a catalogue and create a phrase. This picture and phrase will be shown after you enter your User
ID so you'll know you are in the right place. It will look something like this:
Safe at my bank
If you don't recognize your picture and personal phrase, do not enter your personal information. Instead click "Cancel," and try to sign on
again, or contact us for assistance.
How Secure Sign On helps us know it's really you
After you set up Secure Sign On, we will have two additional ways to identify you:
The PC you are using.
Confirmation questions with answers that are unique to you.
Every time you sign on, we will ask for one of these, in addition to your ID and Password.
We can recognize you based on the computer you use to access online banking. If you sign on from your own computer, we can mark it with a browser cookie that
helps us recognize you every time you sign on.
If we don't recognize your computer, we will ask you two confirmation questions. These are personal questions you have selected during set up to help
us to recognize you when you log on from a new computer.
