Q: What can I do to protect my account information while I’m online?
A: We take numerous steps to keep your account information secure. However, you must take precautions as well.
- Choose a good passcode - Your online passcode, along with your access ID, authenticates you when you begin an Internet Banking session. You should carefully select a passcode that is hard to guess. You should not use personal information or a word that can be found in the dictionary.
- Keep your passcode safe - Even the best passcode is worthless if it’s written on a note attached to your computer or in your checkbook. Memorize your passcode and never tell it to anyone. We do not need your passcode to help you, so we will never ask you for it.
- Change your passcode regularly - It’s important to change your passcode regularly. Every time you choose a new passcode, the Internet Banking system runs a quick program to test it. If we can guess it, we will immediately ask you to choose another one.
- Remember to sign-off properly - You may not always be at your own computer when you bank online. Therefore, it’s important to sign off when you’re finished banking. If you forget to do so, the system automatically signs you off after 10 minutes of inactivity. This will prevent anyone else from accessing your account.
