Q: What do I need to know about Multi-Factor Authentication? A: Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a security feature in which more than one form of authentication is implemented to verify the legitimacy of a transaction. The goal of MFA is to create a layered defense and make it more difficult for an unauthorized person to access a member’s account information in online banking. MFA helps Elements Financial meet regulatory requirements for out-of-band authentication by delivering a credential in a channel other than the one in which an end-user is banking. MFA protects end users and Elements from situations where credentials have been compromised.
Q: How does Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) work? A: The MFA feature requires our online banking users to supply a Secure Access Code (SAC) /Temporary Access Code (TAC) before logging in. This code is delivered via email, text or phone message using contact information attached to your account profile. The MFA process permits online banking users to register browsers or devices. On a registered browser or device, the system will no longer prompt you to enter a new SAC/TAC each time you log in. If you choose not to register your browser, you will be required to request and enter a new SAC/TAC each time you log in to online banking. Each time you log in to online banking after you have registered for MFA, it evaluates whether you are using the same computer and browser you registered with us. Online banking looks for our cookies (electronic markers) in your computer’s memory; if it doesn’t find them, we ask you to identify yourself again by providing a code that you receive by email or text. After your computer is registered, you shouldn’t need to provide a code again for that computer using that browser. (Note: Each time you use a public computer, you must provide a code as a security measure.) On rare occasions, some members can't log in to online banking without registering their computer each time – even after they have registered it already. This may mean that their computer’s browser is clearing our cookies, and our website cannot recognize the computer. If you are experiencing this, try changing the settings in your browser. Below are instructions for some of the more popular browsers on the market today. If your browser type is not listed below, please refer to your browser's help option for information regarding cookie settings.
Q: What browsers are suitable for use with online banking? A:Browser support is subject to change with little to no notice and we encourage end users to configure browsers for automatic updates.
Q: Can I use the ATM/branch locator search feature without signing in to the app? A: Yes, click on the Locations link located at the bottom of the mobile banking login page.
