Online Banking Login


1st Community Credit Union's secure online banking features Two-Factor Authentication; a 'second layer' of security to safeguard the privacy and security of your personal information. The first layer of protection is your user name and password. The second layer is a security image that you choose from 50 provided images. When you enter your user name, your security image appears on the screen - this is a way for you to verify that you are at the correct site and not a phishing site.

Summary of 1st-Time Login Procedure:

  • On your 1st login you are prompted to enter an email address or email-to-text address*
  • You will receive a Challenge PIN via email or text
  • Without exiting the Online Banking screen, open a new browser to check your email or check your phone for your Challenge PIN
  • Enter the 5-digit PIN in the field provided within Online Banking
  • After you successfully log into Online Banking you are prompted to choose Authorize Computer or Public Computer
  • Authorizing your computer bypasses the need for a Challenge PIN when accessing Online Banking on the device you are using only
  • If you are unsure which box to click on, choose Public - the most secure setting - so you will be asked to enter a Challenge PIN every time you log in
  • You only want to authorize computers that are not used by other people, since authorizing reduces the security infrastructure by eliminating the Challenge PIN

Subsequent Logins:

  • If you authorized your computer or mobile device, after entering your User Name you will see the security image you chose and you will be asked for your password
  • If you are on a computer or device that you haven't authorized (or if you have deleted cookies) you will be asked to enter your Challenge PIN. Upon successfully entering the 5-digit Challenge PIN you will see the security image and you will be asked for your password.
  • The 5-digit Challenge PIN is valid for only one login. If you have not authorized your device you will receive a new 5-digit Challenge PIN every time you log into Online Banking. 
  • Remember to keep the Online Banking browser open while you retrieve your Challenge PIN. The PIN is invalid once you exit the screen.
