A FEW WORDS ABOUT ONLINE SECURITY
Dear Account Holders,
In the past week an online security vulnerability has been discovered that has the potential to compromise the computers of account holders accessing the Internet via outdated browsers, such as Internet Explorer versions 5 and 6. In our commitment to your security, and in keeping with industry standards, Bank of Locust Grove will no longer support such browsers, effective late Wednesday, October 22nd.
If you currently utilize Internet Explorer 5 or 6, please take steps to update your browser, or consider installing an alternate web browser such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox to minimize any negative impact.
Bank of Locust Grove is grateful for your business and we appreciate your patience and understanding. Don’t hesitate to call us if we can be of further assistance.
Bank of Locust Grove
We want to make you aware of some security measures available to online banking users. These can be accessed by signing on to your online banking profile. On the left side of the Overview screen you will see a category labeled Preferences. There are two sub-categories that will give you options for additional security measures: Security and User Rights. Under Security you have the option to change your password at any time. You can create a Phishing Phrase that will appear when you go to our Log In page. This phrase will assure you that you are on the Bank of Locust Grove site. Under Secure Delivery you can change your e-mail and phone information for delivery of your Secure Access Code. The Alerts tab has options to receive an email anytime certain conditions/actions take place. You choose from a drop down list of circumstances. Under the User Rights tab you can modify user access, dollar limits and transaction types. This gives you the ability to add extra security layers to your online banking experience. We urge our customers to always be on the lookout for phishing emails masquerading as someone from the bank or other companies that you deal with online. Never click on links embedded in any email message.
For over sixty years, Bank of Locust Grove has been providing full service banking to Locust Grove and the surrounding communities. Our goal has been to provide the same financial products and services you’ll find at much larger banks. Combine that with our focus on customer service and personal attention and you have a bank that is small enough to care yet big enough to meet your needs.
Thanks for visiting our website. We hope that you will find all of the information you could possibly need here. If you have any difficulties finding anything, please feel free to call our offices at (918) 479–5225.
