Security and Ease of Access

New Security Features

Accessing and securing your account is important.

OMISTA is introducing new security enhancements to our Online Banking to help keep your information safe.

Please read below to help you with prompts you may now receive when you log in to online banking.

Strong PAC

As a part of new industry security standards, you will be required to update your personal Online Banking credentials from the traditional PAC (Personal Access Code) to an alphanumeric password. You can manually change your PAC from within your Online Banking account; if you’re using a desktop, navigate to Profile and Preferences and select Change Personal Access Code. In the mobile app, selecting Settings will offer the option to Change Personal Access Code.

2-Step Verification

2-Step Verification is a new security measure within Online Banking that serves to replace the existing use of security questions. During higher-risk logins, you will now be sent a short, one time use unique code that you must enter to confirm your identity before continuing into your online banking.

To set-up 2-Step Verification, click the log-in button on the home screen of online banking and follow the prompts to register. You will need to provide either your mobile phone number or email address for the code to be sent.
