How to Stay Safe with Mobile Banking

Our phones are with us wherever we go. Whether we're at home, at work, or on the go, we expect access to everything we need at all times-and our finances are no exception. That's why using your SFB mobile app is so easy to transfer money, pay bills, check your balance, and even deposit checks.

But having everything at your fingertips also means we have to be more diligent to protect against potential cybercriminals. That's why SFB enforces the strictest security standards for our mobile banking app.  Here are a few ways we make sure your information is secure:

Two-Factor Authentication
This security measure allows you to request a one-time access code to log in to digital banking. The code enhances security by creating an added layer on top of your unique username and password. This security process helps to verify you and better protect your username and password and the accounts you can access.

End to End Encryption
This method of secure communication prevents third parties from accessing your banking information while it's being transferred from one location to another.

Device Security
Every time you sign in your devices passes information to help safely verify that it's you accessing your accounts. The application stores a listing of devices that have accessed your account, and they are available for you to review. If your device is lost or stolen, you have the ability to remove it as a security measure to prevent unauthorized access to your account. It also monitors devices, and when it detects a new device, it automatically prompts for your two-factor information as an additional security measure.

With these measures, rest easy knowing that your account information is always secure, no matter where you're taking your finances today.
