SiteKey® FAQs

General SiteKey® questions

  • Hide Show What is SiteKey®?

    SiteKey is an image and phrase that you selected when you enrolled in Online Banking. It is used as part of your Online and Mobile Banking sign-in experience. After you enter your Online ID, you are presented with a screen that displays your SiteKey image and phrase and asks for your Passcode.

    Between now and the end of the year, you'll have a new, simplified sign-in in which your Online ID and Passcode will be entered on the same screen. SiteKey will no longer be part of your sign-in experience.

  • Hide Show Why are we making changes to sign-in?

    We know how important security and convenience are to you so we're giving you more tools to manage your security and simplifying the way you sign in to Online and Mobile Banking. You'll soon be able to sign in with one step by entering your Online ID and Passcode on the same screen, and SiteKey will no longer be part of the way you sign in to Online and Mobile Banking.
