With the web browser, you may choose to save a trusted device by checking the box next to "Don't ask for codes again on this computer" which bypasses the 2-Step Verification. The Mobile App will let you configure an app passcode and you may also choose to use the device’s biometric feature, such as a fingerprint, if available. If you try to sign in using an unrecognized device or browser, you will be required to go through the 2-Step Verification to access your account.

What is Two-Step Verification?

2-Step Verification (also known as two-factor authentication, or 2FA) is a stronger authentication to access your account. 2-Step Verification will change the way you access your accounts by using an additional step to verify that you are the authorized account user when you sign in from a new or unrecognized device or browser.

2-Step Verification works similar to your existing sign in procedure but uses an additional step to verify that you are the authorized account user. When you sign in from a device or browser that isn’t recognized, you’ll be asked for a 2-Step Verification code that will be sent to you via a method that you choose during registration. The methods to receive the code are through Authy, a free app on your device; a SMS text message to your mobile phone; or through a voice call to your landline or mobile phone.

What are the browser requirements for Online Banking?

To support the security measures we put in place to keep your data safe, we require the use of a modern browser. As new versions of browsers are released, our Online Banking platform will deprecate support for older versions. Below are the details for each supported browser.

      • Microsoft Internet Explorer - Only version 11 will be supported. Any older version of Internet Explorer may be denied access to the platform.
      • Microsoft Edge - Microsoft Edge will be supported at the latest version only. The Online Banking platform may deny access to older Microsoft Edge versions 60 days after a new version is released.
      • Google Chrome - Chrome should automatically update and major updates are released approximately every 12 weeks. If Chrome is two versions older than the current stable channel version, our Online Banking platform may deny it access.
      • Apple Safari - Each year Apple typically makes upgrades to Safari during the fall. Approximately 60 days after a new version is released, our Online Banking platform may deny access to older versions. However, this change requires that the new Safari version is available on both MacOS and iOS devices.
      • Mozilla Firefox - Firefox should automatically update. If Firefox is two versions older than the current stable channel version, our Online Banking platform may deny it access.
