Internet encryption protects your information while it is in transit between your computer and our systems. Encryption ensures that data cannot be read or altered because the information is scrambled. Our online banking website uses a 128-bit SSL, encrypting both request and response transactions, through a secure connection. To establish a secure connection, verify that the prefix of our website address in your browser reads 'https' (and not simply 'http'). All the browsers we support meet this requirement. If yours doesn't, please download the appropriate encryption support from your browser's supplier.
Controlled access to your accounts
Your accounts can only be accessed by providing the correct login credentials and Personal Access Code (PAC), which only you know. Our employees never know these details and will never ask you to provide them with this information.
For security reasons, we track the number of login attempts used to access your online banking. After a number of incorrect attempts to provide the correct PAC or answers to security questions, your online access will be immediately disabled. To regain access, please call the Member Hub.
To protect yourself and your financial information in the online space, here are some tips:
- Choose unique passwords. Passwords should be between five and eight characters with a mix of numbers and letters. Avoid obvious choices like pet names and birthdays.
- Do not use the same password for all of your online activities
- Change your passwords frequently, and do not reveal your passwords to anyone or write them down
Other online security tips:
- Only share personal information with trusted third parties
- When you are finished with online banking, make sure you are properly logged out and have closed your browser
- Use a firewall and keep your computer system up to date with antivirus protection
Report security concerns. If you have a concern with unauthorized online banking activity, please contact your local branch or call our Member Hub at 1-866-736-4334
