Setting Up Online Banking Access
- User ID Requirements: Your Online Banking User ID must be a minimum of 6 characters and cannot be all numbers. For example, a user name of abelincoln would be valid while a user name of 123456 would not be valid.
- Password Requirements: Your Online Banking Password must be a minimum of 8 characters (maximum 20) and use one upper case, one lower case, one number and one special character. For instance, your password cannot contain all letters (e.g. abelincoln or surferdude) or all numbers (i.e, 445727373 or 2233). The following are examples of strong passwords: Abelincoln1865!, SurferDude97$, or #5108761244Ss.
- Our Online Banking system uses Enhanced Login Security. While you can access Online Banking on any computer, we encourage you to set a computer as 'Public' if you are not the only one who uses the device. If you choose to use the 'Private' setting for Enhanced Login Security, you will be able to bypass the additional security check of a 'Public' defined computer.
- Our Enhanced Login Security provides multiple methods to retrieve a one-time security code in case you are logging in from a 'Public' or newly recognized machine. You can use one of several Login Assistance methods to retrieve the one-time passcode and login to Online Banking: Email Message, Text Message or Voicemail. You can set up several phone numbers and email addresses to help you gain access to Online Banking (we suggest adding a home and mobile phone number as appropriate for your needs).
