Mobile Banking FAQ

Security

Q: Is Mobile Banking secure?

A: Mobile Banking employs industry best practices with regards to security. Every time you access your accounts online, you are protected with a multi-layer security system designed to identify you in a number of ways. The multi-layer approach uses these three layers:

Login Credentials- while logging in, you are asked to provide your username and password

Device Monitoring- if you login from a device (tablet, phone or PC) that is not recognized you may be asked to provide additional information

Geographic Indicators- if access is being requested from a location from those we have observed in the past we may ask you to provide additional information

 

Q: What if my phone is lost or stolen?

A: Mobile Banking users must enter a unique username and password in order to see any information before use. You may also deactivate your phone's Mobile Banking capabilities through Online Banking in your User Options menu.

 

Q: How can I help keep my information safe?

A: 

  • Use a PIN/password on your devices.
  • Only download applications and updates/patches to your devices from a reputable source.
  • Install firewall, anti-virus, anti-spyware and anti-malware software on your devices as applicable and keep them current.
  • Never access online or Mobile Banking services using public wi-fi networks or otherwise insecure internet connections.
  • Always be wary of an offer “too good to be true” and other phishing emails or texts used to trick a recipient into revealing personal information, clicking on a malicious link, or opening a malicious attachment.
