Digital Banking Frequently Asked Questions

Digital Banking Conversion – Frequently Asked Questions

Why am I not able to make internal transfers on the mobile app?

To perform internal transfers using our mobile app, iPhone users need an operating system of iOS 15 or higher, and Android users need an operating system of 12 or higher. If your phone cannot update to a newer operating system, you can complete internal transfers using online Digital Banking. Log in to online Digital Banking here.

Why is my current location not correct in the mobile app?

Your location is generated by your phone and not our mobile app. There are several factors why it may be incorrect. The location may reflect your cell phone network and not your physical location. The signal bounces off a satellite and chooses the nearest IP location.  Also, when signing in with a mobile device, you may be routed through an IP address that doesn’t reflect your actual location.

How does an existing online banking user sign into the upgraded site for the first time?

Current online banking users will enter their existing username and password on the new site. After the initial log in, you will be asked to provide the last six digits of your SSN, last name and date of birth. Once validated, you will be prompted with multi-factor authentication to complete enrollment and choose a new password. If the current username does not meet the requirements, you will be prompted to update your username. Check out our Quick Reference Guide for step-by-step instructions.

  • PASSWORD Requirements:
    • Must be 8 – 32 characters in length;
    • Must contain one letter;
    • Must contain one number; and
    • Must contain one special character
    • Cannot include spaces, your name or any personal identifying information
  • USERNAME Requirements:
    • Must be 8 – 32 characters in length;
    • Must contain one letter;
    • Must contain one number; and

How do I download the upgraded mobile app?

  • iPhone users: A banner will pop up when you open the old app with a link to update the app. If the link does not work, you will need to go directly to the App Store to manually update to the new version. If you still have issues, we recommend you delete the old app and then install the new app.
  • Android users: When you open the old app, you will get a message that it’s no longer supported. Please visit the Google Play Store to download the new app. You will need to delete the old app.
  • Please note: Look for our new app icon to ensure you have the latest version.

Security Measures

Why am I being asked to register my computer at every login?

  • If you are being prompted to register your computer every time you log in, your browser might not be allowing cookies. Online Banking places a cookie on your computer when you register your browser. This lets our system know you have confirmed and trust the computer being used.
  • If you are not accepting cookies or deleting them, then you will be prompted to register your computer.

Note: If you have a security program that clears your Internet cookies, or if you clear them manually, you will be required to re-register your computer. You may choose to adjust this setting in your browser’s Tools or Internet Options settings.  Please be aware that the system prompts for a code to be entered for security purposes when login behavior or your location changes. This is an enhanced security feature and cannot be turned off.

Why do we have to use multi-factor authentication and how does it work?
Multi-factor authentication is an added security measure to ensure that we are upholding our member promise of protecting member’s privacy. Members can complete this via text message, voice call, or email.

What does error 1020 mean?
Error 1020 means that your IP address is being blocked. This is common for those who use a VPN, Anti-Virus or WIFI blocker. For security, our system will block an IP if it cannot be verified. To address this issue, you must disable your VPN, Anti-Virus or WIFI blocker to gain access to our system.
