Online Security To Protect You

To protect the privacy and security of your personal information...

The entire Stearns Bank website is protected using a COMODO Digital SSL Certificate.

When you enroll in Online Banking, you are protected by a powerful, multilayered security system.

Here's how our powerful security measures work:

  The access process begins with you typing in your correct User ID and Password.

Then we check the device you are using - whether it's your computer, mobile phone or tablet. If we don't recognize the device, we may ask you to complete a Security Challenge to ensure your identity.


We also check geographic indicators. If you're trying to log in from a new location, we may ask additional questions.


Security you can check:

Before entering your password or answering the Security Challenge, check your browser's address bar. We've added an additional layer of security that shows if you are connected to a safe server. If your browser's address bar is GREEN, your connection is safe. If it's not GREEN, stop your log in process and contact us at 1-800-320-7262.

Here's how the GREEN address bar may appear in your browser.

Please keep in mind your online banking UserID and Password are CASE Sensitive
