Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) has been integrated as part of digital banking. To take advantage of this added protection and continue to be able to perform p2p, external transfer and/or debit card pin changes in online and mobile banking1 you will need to set up a device to use for MFA security.
Log in to digital banking and you will automatically be guided through MFA set up to register/authenticate a device that will be used to verify your identity. Click below to preview or reference the easy steps to registering a device.
Once you’ve registered your device for MFA, every time you perform a p2p, external transfer and/or debit card pin change in digital banking, MFA will direct you to receive and enter an authentication passcode to verify it is you performing the transaction. Click the button below to see an example of how MFA works for an external transfer transaction.
MFA strengthens security measures for your digital banking experience by adding layers beyond a login to confirm that it is you who is performing the task/transaction. With MFA you will be asked to enter a one-time passcode to authenticate your identity as you perform certain transactions.
Because your safety is of utmost priority to us. We want you to be able to take advantage of all of the functions in digital banking and be safeguarded as best as possible while doing so. MFA provides a more robust level of security beyond a username and password login to protect against your data being compromised.
