SecureNow – Security Update Coming January 16th. 

Security and protection are vital features when it comes to banking.  

On January 16th, Capitol Bank will be launching a new security feature that will integrate stronger cybersecurity protections to detect fraud, while still providing a positive online banking experience.  

Every time you log into personal online banking, the new security feature will not only confirm your credentials but also the device you are using. If the system detects a new device or suspicious activity, you may be asked to further verify your identity via a one-time passcode sent to your phone. Given the importance of cybersecurity, this new feature will be mandatory for all personal online banking users.

Simple Set Up: 

For future identity verifications, all you need is a phone number. Starting January 16th, when you log into your personal online banking account through our website or mobile banking app, you will be asked to set up your phone number and choose your preferred delivery method – text message or phone call. 

If you chose to enroll your phone number to receive text messages, you will then receive a text message confirming that Capitol Bank verification codes have been activated. 

If you chose to enroll your phone number to receive phone calls, you will not receive a confirmation message. 

How this feature will work in the future: 

This new security feature will replace the security challenge questions and will only be activated if it detects a login attempt that falls outside of how you typically login.  

When this happens, you will be prompted to enter a one-time passcode during log in. The passcode will be sent to the phone number you set up using your preferred delivery method. Simply enter the passcode to complete your log in. 

Capitol Bank is continuously looking ways to improve the security of our online services. Questions? Please contact us at 608.836.1616 or stop into any of our locations.
