Q. How Can I Protect My Online Banking Account Information?
A. While Alliance Bank believes it is our top priority to protect your banking information, you have an important part in safeguarding your accounts. There are multiple ways you can ensure your Alliance Bank Online Banking information is protected.
- Don’t give your Access ID and/or Passcode to anyone. These are designed to be exclusive to only your Banking Session and will protect your information if you keep them private.
- Change your Passcode frequently.
- Don’t walk away from your computer if you are logged in to your Online Banking Session.
- ALWAYS sign off your Online Banking Session before visiting other sites.
Online Banking Security Features
Encryption is a way to “code” information. When you request and receive information about your accounts, everything is performed with SSL compliant, 128 bit encryption.
Access ID and Passcode Information
In order to access the Alliance Bank Online Banking system, you must enter a unique Access ID and Passcode.
Passcode Security System
Whenever a passcode is entered incorrectly three times, the user is “locked out” of the system. If you have forgotten your passcode and have accidentally locked yourself out of your account, you may use the “Passcode Reset” option (at the top of the home page) to get unlocked. Or if you prefer, you may contact us at (888) 287-4094.
As another level of security, you will be prompted to select and answer four security verification questions. Anytime the computer or location you are logging in from is not recognized, you may be asked to answer two randomly selected questions. These answers must be typed exactly the same way they were initially entered.
Anytime you are logged into your Alliance Bank Online Banking Session and do not have any activity for 10 minutes, you will be prompted to re-enter your login information before continuing.
Online Forms and Applications
When visiting or sending information through the Alliance Bank website, you will notice the URL being used is in “secure” mode. This is evident by the “https” that appears in the address bar as opposed as seeing “http”. If you are using Internet Explorer, you will see a locked padlock icon at the bottom of the screen.
If you have any personal or confidential information to send to Alliance Bank, remember email is not necessarily secure against interception. Please contact us before sending anything with your account number, social security number, or any personal information and we will assist with alternate methods.
