Online Security

Online Security

Founders Bank uses an advanced security system. All sensitive information is encrypted, and online access requires a Personal ID and a Password known only to you.

Designed and tested with and by industry experts, Founders Bank’s online banking technologies will protect your information. Government regulators oversee all of our banking operations including online banking. In addition to these security measures, government agencies regularly audit our operations to ensure we comply with best business practices and the law.

About Security

At Founders Bank, we recognize security concerns and we are serious about security issues. We incorporate many security tiers into Founders Bank’s internet banking system. Every possible effort is made to ensure that your account information is protected from unauthorized access.

Multifactor Authentication

Multifactor authentication derives its name from the concept that a customer can be identified by three factors: something he/she knows, something he/she has and something he/she is. Multifactor authentication uses these factors to identify the customer when conducting financial transactions online. Multifactor Authentication is another innovative solution that enables banks to proactively protect their customers from Internet fraud and the related financial losses and comply with the related regulatory requirements.

SSL and Firewalls

Founders Bank’s online banking is accessed through a Secure Socket Layer (or SSL). This means all data transmitted to or from our computer systems are encrypted using sophisticated security available to protect your money and privacy. Firewalls exist to prevent unauthorized access to the system and to ensure your information is accessible only by using a correct Internet Banking ID and Internet Banking password.

Security Software on Processing System

Founders Bank’s online banking is a secure platform. No one can view, obtain, or intercept information from this secure area without a proper Internet Banking ID and Internet Banking password. The “https” indicates that a secure connection has been made with the server.

Protecting Information Online

It is very important that only you know your User ID and Password. This is the only way your account may be accessed. Three (3) unsuccessful attempts will lock out the User from accessing their account. If a user becomes locked out, a call must be placed to Founders Bank.

Email Solicitation

Founders Bank does not solicit information (Social Security Number, account numbers, credit card numbers, passwords, etc.) by means of email. If you receive an email requesting confidential information from someone claiming to represent Founders Bank, do not respond to the email. Please call any one of our representative to report any solicitation of this kind that you receive.

Your Role in Security

  • Choose a challenging password.
  • You should carefully select a password that is hard to guess and never use a word that can be found in the dictionary.
  • Memorize your password! Even the best password is worthless if it’s written on a note attached to your computer or an entry in your checkbook.
  • Don’t share your Internet Banking password with anyone else. Your password is designed to protect the privacy of your banking information, but it will only work if you keep it to yourself. If you think your password has been compromised, change it immediately online and immediately contact the Bank. Call us or send us a note using the tab labeled “Contact Us” on our website.
  • Change your Login ID and password as often as you wish. (We recommend changing your password at least once each month.)
  • Don’t leave your computer unattended during an online banking session – click on “exit” to end your session.
  • Once you have finished conducting your banking on the Internet, always sign off before visiting other Internet sites.
  • Avoid using public Internet access terminals when conducting your Internet banking.

Important Note: While we continue to do everything possible to ensure the security of our system, we are not responsible for any breach of security that is outside of our control. Please keep your antivirus and security updates current.
