2-Step Verification provides an additional layer of security for your online accounts. It is designed to make sure that you’re the only person who can access your account by requiring both your usual password (PAC) and a one-time use six-digit verification code that is automatically sent each time you log in to a trusted method of contact that you choose (i.e. cell phone or email).
The next time you log in to Online Banking or the Mobile App you’ll be presented with the option to set up 2-Step Verification (2SV). Setting it up takes just a few simple steps and, due to the added security it provides, we recommend you set this up at your earliest convenience.
Occurrences of fraud are on the rise anywhere scammers and fraudsters have access to financial or personal information. While PenFinancial has industry standard protections in place for online banking, we all have a role to play in the security of our online activities. It’s important to stay diligent to help prevent fraud.
