Novation is committed to providing you with a secure Online Banking experience. We protect the privacy and the confidentiality of the communications between your browser and our servers with state of the art encryption programs. We verify that only authorized persons are allowed to access Online Banking. To guard against unauthorized access, we isolate our computer networks from the Internet.
For extra protection against fraud and identity theft, we provide Enhanced Log-in Security. Once you’ve established your personal password, this superior technology protects your identity from whatever computer you’re using - at home, at the office, or on the go. It identifies you as the true “owner” of your accounts by recognizing not only your password, but your computer as well. If the computer you’re using isn’t recognized by us – e.g., you’ve logged-in from a public computer or one you haven’t used before – we’ll ask you “challenge questions” as an additional line of defense to prevent unauthorized access. We also use “time-outs” to close out the program when not in use. This protects against unauthorized access in the event you’ve logged-in, but have stepped away or forgotten to log-out.
To protect yourself, there are many steps that you as a user can take to ensure your personal information remains secure and private:
- Use a browser that utilizes 128-bit encryption.
- Keep your password confidential. Do not tell your password to anyone and do not write it down.
- If you use eBranch in a public area, make sure that only you can view the information on the monitor. Keep any printed account information in a secure location.
- If you view eBranch using a shared or public computer, ensure that others using the computer after you cannot view your account history by clearing the cache on the computer after signing off of eBranch.
- If you feel your password has been compromised, change it immediately by clicking on the "More" button in Online Banking and then clicking on "Change Password". Contact the Credit Union immediately if fraudulent activity is suspected.
- Review your account transactions regularly either online or with your monthly statement.
- Whenever possible, insist that merchants check your I.D. and NEVER give out your personal account information over the phone or Internet.
