Security

 

  • What is 2-Factor Authentication?
    • Two-Factor Authentication (sometimes referred to as 2FA or 2-Step Verification) is a security measure that allows you to request a one-time access code to log in to Digital Banking. The code enhances the security by creating an added layer on top of your unique username and password. This security process helps to verify you and better protect your credentials and the accounts you can access.

 

  • How will my sign in-process change with 2-Factor Authentication?
    • Two-Factor Authentication works similarly to your existing sign in procedure, but uses an additional step to verify that you are the authorized account user. When you sign in from a device or browser that isn’t recognized, you’ll be asked for a 2-Factor Authentication code that will be sent to you via a method that you choose during registration. The new platform will support functionality for SMS text, voice, or Authenticator Apps such as Authy.

 

  • How do I set-up additional 2-Factor Authentication options for myself or a joint account owner?
    • Only one Digital Banking username and password is available per member account and is set up during your initial enrollment. In Digital Banking, you may 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 user 2-Factor Authentication through either the desktop or mobile app.
      • NOTE: This process should be completed when your additional users are available to be with you as they will be required to complete a step in the 2-Factor Authentication.
      • Mobile App Set-up
        1. Sign into Digital Banking from your mobile device
        2. Click on your name at the bottom of the menu, and choose “Settings” from the list
        3. Click on “Security”
        4. Click on “2-step verification” under the “Verification options” section
        5. Under the “Add another method” section, select “Set up” for the method you would like to use for your joint member’s 2-Factor Authentication
          • Voice or Text Message, Authy, or another Authenticator app
        6. Enter the information requested based on your authentication choice. The code will be sent to the new user via the method you selected.

         

        Desktop Set-up

        1. Sign into Digital Banking from your desktop browser
        2. Click on your name at the bottom of the menu, and choose “Settings” from the list
        3. Click on “Security”
        4. Click on “Edit Settings” under the “Two-factor authentication” section
        5. Under the “Add another method” section, select “Set up” for the method you would like to use for your joint member’s 2-Factor Authentication
          • Voice or Text Message, Authy, or another Authenticator app
        6. Enter the information requested based on your authentication choice. The code will be sent to the new user via the method you selected.
  • What do I do if I have a business account with authorized signers who need access to the account?
    • For business accounts, it’s the same process as setting up 2-Factor Authentication for Joint Accounts. Follow the steps above for how to set-up a Joint Account.

 

 

  • Can I use Authy on more than one device?
    • Authy can be downloaded across multiple devices, including your desktop computer. When you install Authy, be sure to sign in with the same email address and phone number combination used during 2-Factor Authentication enrollment.

 

  • Do I need to receive a verification code every time I sign into Digital Banking?
    • That depends on how you set-up your 2-Factor Authentication. On a web browser, you may choose to save a trusted device by checking the box next to “Don’t ask for codes again while using this browser” which bypasses the 2-Factor Authentication on future logins. The Mobile App will let you configure an app passcode as your second form of verification, but you may also choose to use the device’s biometric feature, such as a fingerprint or facial recognition, if available. If you try to sign in using an unrecognized device or browser, you will be required to go through 2-Factor Authentication to access your account.

 

  • What is Biometric Authentication?
    • Biometric Authentication is an alternate method for signing in to the Mobile App that uses biological characteristics – rather than a passcode – to verify your identity. This includes fingerprint and facial recognition options.
    • You will be promoted to enable this during your initial login if your device supports biometric authentication.
    • Note: You may be able to use biometrics such as fingerprint recognition on the desktop application if your computer supports it.

 

  • Does Biometric Authentication replace my current password?
    • Biometric Authentication can be used instead of entering your password at sign in, but you will still need to retain a valid password.

 

  • How will I be able to determine if the number that is texting me with my verification code is a safe number?
    • The following phone numbers are utilized by KEMBA’s Digital Banking to send text messaging and 2-Factor  Verification codes: 417.275.9008 and 844.574.8089. These are safe numbers.

 

  • Can I setup 2-Factor Authentication with an international number?
  • Yes, international numbers can be used.

 

  • What should I do if I selected “Phone Call” as my 2-Factor Authentication process, but I haven’t received a call yet.
    • Please note that you won’t receive the call if you are on the other line with another party, including KEMBA’s call center. Additionally, if you have any spam/robo blocking enabled on phone line, you many  not receive the call with the code, since this may be shown as unknown and/or spam caller.
    • If you don’t receive a call, a KEMBA Member Service Representative can help resend one if you call us at 614.235.2395, option 5.
