Internet Financial Security

Keeping financial information secure and confidential, including Online and Mobile Banking, is one of our most important responsibilities. We use specialized software and other technologies to help protect your information within online banking.

What we do to keep you safe:

Online Banking Security
­When you log in to online banking from the Bank of Utah home page, we secure the connection with Secure Socket Layer [SSL] technology, and then transmit access ID and passcode. SSL encrypts your personal information before it leaves your computer, so that no one else can read it. Once received, this information is transported within our systems via an encrypted network—this is how we work to prevent unauthorized users from accessing our systems and your information through the Internet.

Browser Encryption
­We require the use of a secured 128-bit enabled browser to log in to your account and perform transactions. Firefox®, Internet Explorer®, Chrome® and Safari® are all secure browsers. If you are not using one of these browsers, or feel your browser does not meet our security requirements, you should download an upgraded browser version.

Once you have signed in, there are two ways to verify that your online banking session is secure:

  • Padlock icon: Look for the small padlock icon in your browser's URL field, usually located in the upper left corner. A closed or locked padlock indicates a secure connection.
  • https: The "s" at the end of http means secure. Look for the letters "https://" at the beginning of the website address or URL in your browser. (If your online banking session is in a framed website, you may need to right click on the frame and VIEW SOURCE to see the "https://" address for your session.)
