Enhanced Online Banking Security
We at Landmark Bank continually enhance our Online Banking security to stay ahead of emerging threats. These changes are designed to keep your banking information even more secure while ensuring that our Online Banking service remains convenient and easy to use.
We’ve added a layer of security to our Online Banking login process to further validate your identity. This process is designed to keep your personal account information protected from fraud and identity theft. The security measures will identify you as the true “owner” of your Online Banking relationship by recognizing your computer as well as your password. If we cannot recognize your computer, whether you’re using a new computer, a public computer or a computer that you had not used before, we will ask you for additional information that only you will know as another line of defense to prevent unauthorized access to your accounts.
During the enrollment process, you will complete a number of activities:
1. View your current e-mail address on file
2. View your authentication image
3. Enter your authentication pass phrase
4. Provide answers to a series of challenge questions
5. Decide whether or not to register your computer
If you are using a public computer at that time, such as in an Internet cafe or library, you may still complete the enrollment process. Later, you may register a non-public computer you regularly use to access your Landmark Bank Online Banking relationship, such as your home or office computer. There is no limitation on the number of computers that you can register.
Once you have successfully enrolled, you can log back into Online Banking to change the authentication image by choosing from a list of random images.
Posted: No Phishing
Our security measures also protect you from “Phishing” by enabling you to confirm that you are accessing our valid Online Banking website. As part of the enrollment process, you’ll view a unique image and enter a corresponding phrase that will subsequently be displayed to you every time you access Landmark Bank’s Online Banking service. This “Two-Factor” authentication provides you with the assurance that you have not been redirected to a fake or fraudulent website. You can then conduct your Online Banking transactions with peace of mind that your information is safe. If you do not see your image and phrase after completing the enrollment process, you should Contact Us securely before entering any information.
We at Landmark Bank are committed to keeping your personal financial information safe and secure. We welcome your feedback on our security measures and encourage you to Contact Us with any questions or concerns.
