What is Two-Factor Authentication and why am I asked for a code when I log in?

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is a security feature that helps safeguard your account information when users provide two distinct form of identification. It is an important security tool to help ensure you are the only one accessing your account information. By entering the code received at your number, the system knows it’s you.

When initially setting up 2FA, you will need to enroll a phone number (mobile or landline). Once this information is entered, you’ll choose one of three options to receive a one-time verification code:

1. Text message to the mobile phone entered,

2. Automated phone call to phone number entered, or

3. Authy Authenticator App

This is a one-time set up, so ensure that you have access to this phone while completing these steps. Each time you log in, you will receive a code at the phone number or via Authenticator App, originally provided.

*Please note – If you are using an Intuit product such as Quicken or Mint, you must use the Authy Authenticator app so the Intuit connection can access 2FA.

Do I need to get a verification code every time I log in?

After entering the verification code, if you are logging in from a secure computer or device, you have the option to select “Don’t ask for code again on this computer.” This allows you to avoid having to enter a verification code during each login. This option should never be selected on a shared or public computer.

I received a request for a verification code, but I’m not trying to log in?

This is a result of one of two things:

  1. You may be using an aggregation service (a site or 3rd party that logs in to online banking to retrieve your account data) that’s prompting the code to be sent behind the scenes.
  2. You may have potential fraud. Thankfully, this is exactly why 2FA is in place. If this happens (and you are not using any aggregation service), please change your password immediately.

I decided I want to use another 2FA method. Can I update this?

Yes, you can update your Two-Factor Authentication method at any time. Click on your name from the bottom of your menu, go to Settings and select Security. Click on Edit settings under Two-Factor authentication to make changes.

I use an account aggregator (like a Financial site), and it’s not connecting anymore. What do I do?

Due to the conversion, your connection with the 3rd party aggregator may “break.” This should resolve on its own. If not, please disconnect and reconnect.


Can I receive alerts regarding my accounts?

Yes, you can set up alerts regarding your account balance, transactions and Debit Card usage. When you set up Alerts, you will receive a notification via email, text, or within our app. Bill Pay Alerts can be set up in Bill Pay under Payments.
