What is 2-Factor Authentication and why is it used by by the online banking system?

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is a security measure that allows you to request a one-time access code to log in to digital banking. The code enhances the security by creating an added layer on top of your unique username and password. This security process helps to verify you and better protect your credentials and the accounts you can access.

When I log into digital banking, do I need to get a confirmation code every time I log in?

No. Check the "Don’t ask for codes again on this computer" box if you do not want to receive a confirmation code or phone call each time you log in. If you prefer to input a confirmation code with each use, you can leave the box unchecked or use the 2-Factor Authentication app called Authy to deliver the code.

Note: If you ever want to remove a device and reset your security settings, you can change them in settings once logged in to electronic banking.

How can I log in to electronic banking if I can't get a verification code through text message?

Two-Factor authentication uses a unique one-time access code to verify identity and log on to digital banking. If you are unable to receive text (SMS) messages, you can choose to receive your access code via a phone call.

  • On the verification code screen click Try another way located beneath the Verify button
  • Select Phone Call and click Next
  • You will receive an automated phone call that will provide your access code (Have a pen and paper ready)
  • Return to the verification code screen
  • Enter your access code and click Verify

If you are still having trouble, contact the Bank to ensure we have the correct phone number on file.

Can I use an email for two-factor authentication?

An email and a phone number are required for the two-step authentication. The onetime access code will be sent via text or phone call. The phone number must allow incoming texts or calls from unknown numbers in order for the code to be delivered successfully.
