At First National Bank USA we take security very seriously. We have taken every precaution necessary to be sure your information is transmitted safely and securely. The latest methods in Internet system security are used to increase and monitor the integrity and security of our system.
First National Bank USA’s online banking application supports data encryption at the highest level (2048 bit). In order to get this level of encryption, you will need a browser that supports it. Please ensure that your browser is the latest supported version and that you have the appropriate security settings to maximize the security of your session. Please visit your browser manufacturers website for details on these settings.
Our site uses multifactor authentication that prompts you for a challenge question prior to asking for your password. You may designate your workstation as private and avoid having to answer the challenge question each time you login once you have properly answered the challenge question. Never choose “private” workstation when using a public computer or if you are not comfortable with your workstations security.
When accessing our Internet Banking site, you will be forwarded to a Web page with a URL address that starts with https://. This will cause your browser’s HTTPS layer to start an encrypted session using SSL. You will then receive a login screen. Since the encrypted session has already been started, your user name and password are safe and secure. The data traveling between the user and the server is encrypted.
Internet security does not rely on technology alone. Without everyone’s participation, all the security systems and technology in the world are worthless. You must treat your User ID and password with the same care as an ATM or credit card and PIN. In addition, you must make sure that no one is physically watching when you enter your password. If you are logged in to the service, be sure to log off of the service and exit the browser when you leave the computer unattended. You should also take standard precautions to keep you system clean and free from viruses that could be used to capture password keystrokes and financial information.
