Digital Banking: 2-Factor Authentication

This will be set-up during enrollment, and you can use this step-by-step guide to walk you through the process and also help set-up 2-Factor Authentication for Joint Account Members.  

 

Setting up 2-Factor Authentication during enrollment

The following video walks you through the full enrollment process, including 2-Factor Authentication set-up on Desktop.

 

Setting up 2-Factor Authentication for Joint Account Members

 

Only one Digital Banking username and password is available per member account and is set-up during initial enrollment. In Digital Banking, you can set-up other users’ mobile numbers for 2-Factor Authentication, allowing verification codes to be sent to each user individually. Follow these steps to complete the process of adding multiple users with 2-Factor Authentication.

NOTE: Please enroll in Digital Banking first. Then, to set-up 2-Factor Authentication for joint members, follow these steps when all users are available to be together.
