  • What’s a trusted image in Online Banking?

    The trusted image, formerly called the SafeKeys image, is a picture you pick that displays when you log in.

    Soon, we’ll be streamlining the login process, and you’ll no longer need to verify the trusted image. As always, you can be confident that your accounts are secure. We’ll still send you a security code to make sure it’s you when we need additional verification.

  • What’s a Security Code in Online Banking?

    It’s a 6-digit code that you can ask us to send in a text message or email when you log in from a device we don’t recognize. The code can only be used once, and expires 20 minutes after it’s sent.
  • How long do Security Codes take to arrive?

    It depends how the code was sent. If it was sent as an email, it may take a few minutes to arrive (remember to check your SPAM folder). If the code was sent as a text message, it normally will arrive within a few seconds. If it has not arrived yet, try sending it again. If you have set up another option to receive security codes you can try sending it to that email address or phone number.
  • Should I save the Security Code?

    No. Since this is a randomly generated one-time code you won’t need to use it again.
  • How can I change where the Security Code is sent?

    To change where you receive security codes, simply log in to online banking and go to the Security Code Delivery section in My Profile. For your protection, you can’t change where you receive security codes until you have completed logging in.
  • What carriers are supported to receive a Security Code via a text message?

  • Do message and data rates apply to Security Codes sent as a text message?

    We don’t charge a message delivery fee, but standard message and data rates from your carrier may apply. Check with your provider if you have any questions about your plan and the cost of receiving text messages.
  • Should I register this computer in Online Banking?

    It depends on the type of computer you’re on. If you’re on a personal computer that you use frequently it’s a good idea to register it. If you’re on a friend’s computer or a computer used by the public you should not register it.
  • Can I register more than one computer in Online Banking?

    Yes. You can register as many computers as you want. To register another computer simply log in from it. After you enter your security code you’ll be given the option to register the computer.
  • Which browsers work best with online banking?

    For best results, we recommend you use:
