By following our tips, Online Banking at BMI Federal Credit Union can be a safe and
efficient method for handling your banking needs.
User Identification and Password
Security starts at your computer. Never share your Login ID or password with anyone.
Make sure your password is hard to guess by combining random numbers and letters
instead of using your birth date, pet’s name or other personally identifiable choices.
Secure Sockets Layer Encryption
We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption, a trusted method of securing internet
transactions. This technology scrambles data as it travels between your computer and
your financial institution, making it difficult for anyone to access your account
Secure Access Code
You need a secure access code each time you login to our Online Banking system
unless you register this device for future log ins. It is delivered to you via phone call, or
SMS text. If you delete the security certificate or “cookie” that activates your computer
for later use, or if you log in from a new computer, you will need another secure access
code the next time that you log in.
In addition to your personal password security, we have added another layer of
security called browser registration that runs in the background and helps verify your
identity at login.
Online Banking Safety Tips:
> Ensure your web browser, operating system, anti-virus software and other
applications are current and support 128-bit encryption.
> Memorize your passwords.
> Exit your BMI Federal Credit Union Online Banking session when finished.
> Do not leave your computer unattended when logged in to Online Banking.
> Do not use public computers or unsecured WiFi when accessing Online Banking.
> If you receive an error when logged into your Online Banking account, report
the error to a Member Service Representative at 614-707-4000.
