A secure access code is an added level of security to your online banking credentials. This type of multifactor authentication further verifies the identification of the person signing into your account. After entering your Login ID and Password, you will be prompted to choose a delivery method, which can be your telephone number, email address or text message. These forms of delivery are set up when you enroll in Online Banking. These can be updated after you login or by calling the C&N Client Care Center. A 6-digit code will be sent to the method you choose, which you will enter on the next screen. This code is a one-time-use code, so you do not need to save it.
The next screen will prompt you to choose “Register Device” or “Do Not Register Device.” When you choose to register a device, a cookie will be stored on your computer. A cookie is a small bit of data sent from a website and stored on your web browser enabling the website to recall your previous activity. This will allow you to keep from getting a secure access code every time you log in to your Internet Banking. The secure access code cookie will remain on your computer for 365 days, at which time you will be required to get a new secure access code. If you are signing in using a public or shared computer, we highly recommend that you choose “Do Not Register Device” to further safeguard your information.
