What is "Phishing?"
"Phishing" refers to a person or group of cyber-criminals who create an imitation or copy of an existing legitimate Web page to trick users into providing sensitive personal information. Responding to "phishing" emails puts your accounts at risk.
MCTeller Online Banking Security
In order to keep your online banking experience as secure as possible, we have a security feature called Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). MFA provides a secret image that is personalized by you. In addition, we have an extra layer of security behind the scenes which may prompt you to verify your identity before continuing to log into the system or complete a transaction. You will be prompted to choose "challenge questions" upon your initial login that only you know the answers to. If the system detects activity that appears to be unusual or uncharacteristic of your typical behavior, it will ask you to answer one of your challenge questions.
Whenever you log on to your MCTeller account, the system will display the secret image you selected. When you see the image you can feel confident that you are accessing our site and not an imposter site.
If you have any questions about the security of your account please contact us.
