How does Enhanced Account Protection protect me?
Enhanced Account Protection can help protect you from online fraud by requiring you to enter a security code before completing specific types of transactions. This code is sent to an enrolled mobile phone when executing Transfer to a Friend transfers greater than or equal to $500 and External Account transfers greater than or equal to $1,000.
How does it work?
Step 1 – Request a code. We’ll ask you to request a security
code (SMS token) for specific transactions. This code will be delivered to your mobile phone.
Step 2 – Enter the code and your EAP PIN. Once you receive the security code on your mobile phone, just enter that code in your Online Banking session for verification, along with your EAP PIN.
Step 3 – Code approved. Once the code and PIN are validated in Online Banking, just proceed with your transaction.
What is the PIN for Enhanced Account Protection?
A PIN (Personal Identification Number) is separate from a security code (SMS token). The PIN provides additional security by authenticating that you know personalized credentials when verifying transactions. Unless we notified you of a temporary PIN, it is a 4 to 9 digit number that you selected. The PIN for EAP is separate from the PIN for other products or services.
