Passwords

To begin Online Banking, customers must submit an Online Banking application that includes an Username and a Password. After first logon, you will be required to change both the Username and Password as well as answer 3 challenge questions. Bank of Bennington uses Multifactor Authentication which is an extra layer of security for Online Banking. After the initial sign up, if you computer is not recognized a challenge question will be asked before asking for your password. Our Internet system uses a “3 strikes and you’re out” lock out mechanism. After three unsuccessful login attempts, the system locks the user out, requiring a call to the bank to reset the password.

Your transactions are protected by individual passwords. Bank of Bennington does NOT know your password and Bank of Bennington will not send any account information to your computer unless your Username and Password are correct. Be sure to keep this password private. Do not share it with anyone. Memorize it and do not store the Password on or near your computer. Change your password frequently. Passwords must include letters, numbers, and cannot be a word in the dictionary or based on user information. Remember to exit the Internet browser when leaving the computer or when finished with your banking transactions.
