Logging In To Your Account Information The security of your personal information is our highest priority. To continue providing a safe and secure Internet banking environment we will be introducing significant security enhancements to better protect your personal information.

What is Multifactor? Multi-factor authentication works by using more than one way to confirm your identity. Internet fraud is becoming more common and more advanced. As Internet thieves continue to develop new ways to trick people, their fakes become harder to spot. With multi-factor authentication, even if you fall for an Internet scheme, you are still protected.
Multifactor (continued) Each time you login our system will verify the computer you are using. If the system recognizes your computer then your private picture and phrase will be displayed. This ensures that you are on the correct website. If our system doesn’t recognize your computer it will challenge you with security questions that you submitted in the initial enrollment (see the next page). Only after successfully answering a question can you enter the Internet banking portal.
