Individualized Password
When you sign up for online access, People’s Bank may allow you to create your own username and password, to access your accounts. This information is encrypted during transmission.

Security Questions
People’s Bank requires Online Banking customers to select three questions and provide answers. If we ever need to confirm your identity, your correct answers to security questions will help us verify it is you.

Timed Log-off
People’s Bank’s system will automatically log you off from People’s Bank Online Banking after 12 minutes of inactivity. This reduces the risk of others accessing your information from your unattended computer.

Debit Card Travel Notification
We are constantly monitoring activity on our customers' debit cards as part of our continuous Fraud Detection Program.  Based on fraudulent activity in certain areas, your card may not be available to use unless you notify us of your travel plans prior to departure.  Please stop by any branch to complete a Travel Notification for Debit Cards or call 866.454.4735.
 
As an added layer of security, we are also pleased to offer a free point-of-sale Push Notification Service through CardValet®.  This program is designed for ATM and Debit Card transactions available to People’s Bank cardholders. 

Encryption
From the moment account information leaves your computer to the time it enters People’s Bank systems, all online access and Bill Pay sessions are encrypted.
During any transaction, our 128-bit encryption turns your information into a coded sequence with billions of possible variations, making it nearly impossible for unwanted intruders to decipher. People’s Bank computers possess the proper formulas to turn this code back into meaningful information and complete your transaction.
Look for a “closed lock” in the lower right hand corner (Microsoft Internet Explorer) or in the right end of the address bar (Firefox 2) or in the top right corner (Safari) of your browser to determine if encryption is being used on any Web page you are viewing. Any Web address beginning with https:// indicates the page you are viewing uses encryption. The “s” stands for “secured”.

Your Responsibilities
You are responsible for protecting your password and account information by:
  • Not disclosing your personal account information to others (including your ATM PIN, online username, and password) and
  • Promptly reporting incidents of unauthorized account access or use by calling 866.454.4735.  
Important Notice
People’s Bank will NEVER call or email our customers and ask for account numbers.
