We provide this information to educate you on ways that Stafford Savings Bank ensures the security of your account data and log in information when using online banking solutions.
We use debit card fraud detection and monitoring systems to spot inconsistencies.
We use enhanced multi-factor authentication for logging into online banking solutions.
Limits are set for repeated failed login attempts and incorrect Username and Password entries to help prevent unauthorized access to your Stafford Savings Bank accounts.
We need you. Remember, you play a crucial role in preventing unauthorized access to your online banking:
We recommend that you change your password periodically by using the appropriate function in your online banking.
Your cooperation helps maximize the effectiveness of our security measures. Stafford Savings Bank employs the latest technology to protect your financial information online, but when you take steps to protect your information and take ownership of your online safety, your security is strengthened.
To begin a session with the bank’s server the user must key in a Username. The user will then be required to accept a telephone call or text message from us to authenticate the log in. This process is called Out of Band authentication (OOB). The user that is prompted to receive a call must enter a one-time security code into the phone which is displayed on the online banking device screen. The user that receives a text message security code must then enter the code on the online banking screen. Once verified, the user may enter the correct password at which time access is granted. The Out of Band authentication process may apply from time to time and on any new device that is used to access accounts.
The EV SSL protocol not only ensures privacy, but also ensures that no other browser can "impersonate" your browser, nor alter any of the data that is transmitted. You can tell whether your browser is in secure mode by looking for a lock symbol.
Requests must filter through a firewall before they are permitted to reach the server. An additional level of security is achieved through the use of proxy-based firewalls which route only authorized traffic such as your log in attempt and requests for account data to our online banking servers. These firewalls isolate your account data from the outside world and protect it from all unauthorized traffic.
It is the policy of Stafford Savings Bank to comply with The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Stafford Savings Bank does not knowingly market to or solicit information from children under 13.
