    Online Banking Security


    In order to access your Online Banking account, you will need to complete the online enrollment form or stop in to any of our locations. 

    Some things to remember as you initialize your Online Banking account:

    • You are a First-Time User until you log on to your Online Banking account.
    • Follow all First-Time User prompts and buttons.
    • New passwords must be 8-17 characters in length and include, 1 number, 1 uppercase, and 1 special character (!, @, #, $, %). Example: MyBank12$

    Browser Encryption

    All customer information is encrypted using 128-bit secure browser with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology and supported with digital certificates. This means that your information submitted on our forms is safe and secure as it travels over the Internet.

    To test your current browser, see the information below. There are several ways to tell if the security is working. A small window may pop up to tell you that this is a secure link and do you want to continue...

    • When it does switch over to a secure link, look at the link address up in the location window of the browser. Instead of the usual http:// you will notice that is has changed to https:// The 's' designates Secure Mode. If that does NOT show up, you are not in secure mode.
    • Most browsers also have a small graphic that will pop up and stay in the lower right hand corner of the browser window to denote that you are browsing in a secure mode. Usually picture of a lock is used for this graphic.
