How can I ensure my security as a user of Online Banking?
Here are the steps that you can take to ensure data privacy:
- Choose a strong password and protect it from unauthorized use. A First Bank Kansas staff member will never need to know your Online Banking password and you should never furnish it to someone claiming that they represent First Bank Kansas.
- Exit Online Banking as soon as you finish viewing your accounts. Never walk away from your computer with your account information on the screen.
I am still hesitant about banking on the Internet. Can other people see my account information?
Your account information is just as secure as it is at your physical brick and mortar bank. We have taken every step possible to be sure our system meets the latest security standards, including using the latest security encryption methods and software. Protecting the privacy and the security of your confidential financial information is our top priority. Your account information is protected by a user id and password that only you know. Logging in from an unregistered computer will require the use of a secure access code that can only be delivered to contact information you previously had on file with the bank. Plus, you may change your password as often as you like. Back to top
What is a Secure Access Code and why do I need one to login?
A Secure Access Code is a number that is sent to you by a method other than internet banking to ensure that we are connecting to the right person.
- Secure Access Codes are never left on voice mail
- Unused Secure Access Codes expire after 10 minutes
- Used Secure Access Codes expire immediately and cannot be reused
- If you are sent a Secure Access Code and did not request one, you can choose the option to immediately disable your online account.
