When will I know that Multifactor Authentication/Enhanced Login Security is set for my accounts?
Soon you will be prompted to sign up when you login to your online banking session. Sign up once at your computer, set up your phone numbers or email capability, and you’re all set.
How will it affect my online banking experience?
One you set up your account, the next time you login it will be business as usual. The rest of your online banking experience will remain exactly the same.
Can I access my account from other computers at my home, my office, or on the road?
Multifactor Authentication identifies you as the true owner of your accounts by recognizing not only your password but your computer as well. If we don’t recognize your computer you’ve logged in from a public computer or one you haven’t used before, for example, we’ll ask you to choose from the options on the screen (call, text or email) for a onetime verification code as an additional line of defense to prevent unauthorized access. With Enhanced Login Security, you’ll be protected from whatever computer you’re using, whether you’re at home or on the go.
