How We Protect Your Information

Login IDs and Passwords

When you enroll in BanescOnline Banking you will be asked to select a unique Log In ID and Password. Do not use your account number or Social Security Number. If you need to reset your Password, use our secure online automated Password reset feature or contact the Customer Service for assistance.  


Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology is automatically activated  when your browser connects to Online Banking. The padlock icon at the bottom of the screen will appear locked, confirming that encryption technology is protecting your information. Online Banking requires a browser that supports 128-bit encryption and you will see a warning message if your browser does not meet this requirement.  


An SSL Certificate is a digital certificate that authenticates a website’s identity and enables an encrypted connection.   


  • Encrypted session cookies enable the Bank to process multiple transactions during one Online Banking session without requiring you to provide your Login ID and Password for each individual transaction. You must accept this encrypted session cookie to use Online Banking Service. Cookies are stored on your computer’s hard drive and do not contain any personal information. When you log out of the session, close your browser or turn off your computer, the encrypted session cookie is automatically removed from your computer.
  • Permanent cookies identify the Bank and your computer for enhanced security each time you log in to your account. Permanent cookies remain on your computer’s hard drive until you clear cookies within your browser. If you do not accept these permanent cookies, you may not be able to use all Online Banking features.

Multi-Level Authentication 

To help prevent unauthorized access to your accounts, security challenge questions may be used to verify your identity if unusual login or transaction activity is detected. We may also send you a One Time PIN (OTP) which can be used to help authenticate your login or transaction requests.
How You Can Protect Your Information


    • Create a Password that is difficult to guess.
    • Don’t use common words or any word based on your name, address or other personal information.
    • Use special characters such as !@#$%^&*?/.
    • Memorize your Password and do not write it down.
    • Change your Password occasionally, such as every 90 days.
    • Don’t share your Password with anyone, not even other Authorized Users on your account.
    • Click “Help” in the Internet Banking Service for more tips.

Be Wary of Requests for Information

  • Don’t click on links in emails requesting personal or financial information. These emails appear “official” but may be a “phishing” scam designed to steal personal information or download malicious software (malware) onto your computer. The links in these emails may send you to websites that look legitimate but are fake sites created by cybercriminals and intended to steal your personal information.
  • We will never contact you by telephone, email or text requesting personal information, such as your Log In ID, Password, credit card number, VISA® Debit Card number or PIN. If you are contacted by anyone requesting this information, do not provide it and contact our Customer Service immediately.

Remember to Log Out

  • Log out as soon as you are done with your Online Banking session to protect your information if you leave your computer unattended. 
  • Don’t use public computers (e.g.: computers in a library, internet café or hotel business center) to access your online banking accounts.
  • Online Banking sessions will automatically end after 10 minutes of inactivity. 

Install Updated Software

  • Keep your computer’s operating system fully patched for critical security issues. 
  • Use current, fully patched browsers.
  • Keep anti-virus and anti-spyware software up to date and routinely scan your computer, servers and electronic media. Malicious software (malware) may affect the performance of your computer, and may corrupt and destroy your programs, files and  hardware, as well as  affect the security of online accounts and the privacy of personal information stored on your computer. If your computer is compromised by malware or virus, you could unintentionally transmit sensitive account information or personal data  or transmit a virus to other computers. 
  • Use a firewall especially if you have a broadband Internet connection such as DSL or cable modem.
