There may be several reasons you are experiencing difficulty logging into your Online Banking session. If you complete the ID and password fields and click submit and your computer does not seem to do anything, the problem may be your browser. We have found that some users may need to complete the following:
- On the top Internet Explorer tool bar, choose 'Tools,' then 'Internet Options.' On the Internet Options window, click on the tab labeled 'Privacy.' On the Privacy window, there will be a section titled Settings, and there will be a slider on the left hand side. Move the slider all the way down, until it says 'Accept All Cookies.' Click OK and close out.
- You may also have to clean out your "Cookies". On the top Internet Explorer tool bar, choose "Tools" then "Internet Options". On the "General" tab under "Browsing History" click on "Delete" this will bring up a separate window labeled "Delete Browsing History" Leave all checks as they are and click on "Delete" at the bottom. This will remove all Temporary Internet files and files stored on your computer by web sites. This may remove saved login information if you have done so on any login pages.
You will also have to have a supported browser - Please see below under" What kind of browser do I need?"
As a security measure, accounts will lock for several reasons, such as inactivity or the incorrect password being entered three times in a row. If your account is locked, please call your local branch, or 1-845-794-9203 during regular business hours. Upon proper identification, we will be happy to unlock the account and reset the password. This is only for the security of our customers. We apologize for any inconvenience.
