Secure Homepage Login

Mechanics Bank views the security of your personal information online as a top priority. When you login to any online banking application from our website's home page, other areas of our website, or through mobile banking, your User ID and Password (Online Banking/Mobile Banking) or Access ID and Password (Business Online Banking) are securely transmitted to our online system. When you access your account and perform transactions, our systems use 128-bit and 256-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology — the most widely used methods of securing internet transactions available today. Whenever you login to online banking, be confident that your information will be protected by the highest security measures.

Additional Security Features

  • Individualized Password

    When you sign up for online banking or mobile banking access, you must create your own username and password to access your accounts. This information is encrypted during transmission. We strongly recommend that you do not use your Social Security number, or other identifiable number like a birthdate as a username or password. Our Online Banking system, for example, utilizes additional password complexity requirements: Passwords should be between 8 and 20 characters, should be at least 1 number, should be at least 1 uppercase letter, should be at least 1 lowercase letter, should have at least 1 special character (a special character is anyone of the following: ! @ # $ % ^ & * _ + - = ( ) [ ] { } | : ; ` , . / ?), cannot contain leading or trailing blanks.

  • Login Time Out

    Mechancis Bank Online Banking and Mobile Banking will automatically log you off after twenty and five minutes of inactivity, respectively (you have the ability to adjust your timeout in Online Banking, but not for Mobile Banking). This reduces the risk of others accessing your information from your unattended computer, mobile, or tablet device.

  • Firewall

    Mechanics Bank computer systems are protected 24 hours a day by a powerful firewall that blocks unauthorized entry.

  • Encryption

    All online banking access and Bill Pay sessions are encrypted. Mechanics Bank has some of the strongest forms of encryption commercially available for use on the web today. During any transaction, our 128-bit and 256-bit encryption turns your information into a coded sequence with billions of possible variations, making it nearly impossible for unwanted intruders to decipher. Look for a "closed lock" icon in the lower right-hand corner (Microsoft Internet Explorer) or in the right end of the address bar (Firefox ) or in the top right corner (Safari) of your browser to determine if encryption is being used on any Web page you are viewing. Any Web address beginning with "https://..." indicates the page you are viewing uses encryption.
