Online Banking Security
The online banking website is registered with VeriSign, an industry leader in website identification and encryption. Via your browser, VeriSign allows you to confirm the online banking website's identity before transmitting any personal information by clicking on the VeriSign logo. VeriSign uses 128-bit encryption to scramble personal information, which stays scrambled while traveling over the Internet. VeriSign also uses secure server software (SSL), the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions.
It is important to verify that only authorized persons log into online banking. This is achieved by verifying your password. When you submit your password, it is compared with the password we have stored in our secure data center.
We allow you to enter your password incorrectly a limited number of times; too many incorrect passwords will result in the locking of your online banking account until you call us to reinitialize the account. We monitor and record "bad-login" attempts to detect any suspicious activity (i.e. someone trying to guess your password).
You play a crucial role in preventing others from logging on to your account. Never use easy-to-guess passwords. Examples:
- Birth dates
- First names
- Pet names
- Phone numbers
- Social Security numbers
Never reveal your password to another person. You should periodically change your password in the User Option screen of online banking.
Your personal identity is a valuable asset and it is important to be proactive when it comes to defending yourself against identity theft. Thrivent Financial offers a free and discounted identity monitoring (Link opens in new window) service as a benefit of membership.
