Will I need to download a new app with the new Online Banking?
Yes. The Apple app is available on the App Store and the Android app is available on Google Play.

Do I need to re-enroll in Online Banking on the new system?
There is no need to enroll in Online Banking if you have previously enrolled in online banking. Log in with your existing online banking credentials on either the Online Banking website or the new mobile banking app. If you are having trouble logging in, you can reset your password to recover access to your account.

How do I enroll in Online Banking?
If you have not previously used online banking, then you will have to go through the enrollment process:
- Request a mobile banking profile via the login screen on desktop
- Provide identifiable information that matches what is on your account to confirm your identity
- Create a username and password to use each time you sign on, whether via online or mobile
Note: If you cannot provide the correct identifiable information which matches that on your account after 5 tries, you will be locked out of the Online Banking system for 24 hours.

How will I get notified of updates regarding my account?
When completing the registration process, agree to push notifications in order to stay up-to-date on account changes, messaging replies, and more.

How do I access Online Banking?
You can access the new Online Banking and your account on a desktop, laptop, mobile phone, or other internet-accessible device. Simply log in with your existing online banking credentials to both online and mobile banking. There are two access points:
1) Visit our website and click Log In to get started
2) Download the NEW mobile banking app from the Google Play or Apple Store

What is 2-Factor Authentication and why is it used?
Two-Factor Authentication is a security measure that allows you to request a one-time access code to log in to Online Banking. The code enhances the security by creating an added layer on top of your unique username and password. This security process helps to verify you and better protect your credentials and the accounts you can access.

When I log into Online Banking, do I need to get a confirmation code every time I log in?
No. Check the "Don't ask for codes again on this computer" box if you do not want to receive a confirmation code or phone call each time you log in. If you prefer to input a confirmation code with each use, you can leave the box unchecked or use the 2-Factor Authentication app to deliver the code.
Note: If you ever want to remove a device and reset your security settings, you can change them in settings once logged in to Online Banking.

How can I log in to Online Banking if I can't get a verification code through text message?
Two-Factor authentication uses a unique one-time access code to verify identity and log on to Online Banking. If you are unable to receive text (SMS) messages, you can choose to receive your access code via a phone call:
- On the verification code screen click Try another way located beneath the Verify button
- Select Phone Call and click Next
- You will receive an automated phone call that will provide your access code (Have a pen and paper ready)
- Return to the verification code screen
- Enter your access code and click Verify
Note: If you are still having trouble, contact the credit union to ensure we have the correct phone number on file.

How do I reset my 2-Factor Authentication?
If you would like to reset your 2-Factor Authentication, do the following:
1. Once logged in to the Online Banking app, select the "hamburger bars" in the upper left corner of the screen
2. Select your name at the bottom of the menu, then select "Settings"
3. Under Settings, select "Security"
4. Select "Reset 2-Factor Authentication"
5. When prompted to confirm this action, select "Reset"
