Your online security is important to us. That is why we are committed to safeguarding your personal information online to keep it secure and confidential.

We will send you email updates or messages within internet banking regarding service outages to the internet banking.

If you receive a suspicious email asking you for your credentials, please report it to The Frederick Community Bank or forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org

Your responsibilities online include:
When you sign in to Internet banking from The Frederick Community Bank home page, your Access ID and Passcode are sent over the Internet from your computer to ours using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. SSL encrypts your personal information before it leaves your computer, ensuring that no one else can read it.
Once you have signed in, you can check that your Online Banking session is secure in two ways:
- Look for the small padlock icon usually located in the browser’s address bar. A closed, or locked, padlock indicates a secure connection.
- Look for the letters “https://” at the beginning of the Web site address or URL in your Web browser. The “s” means secure.
ALERT: As a security precaution, please remember to click the “Log Off” link when you finish your online session or close all browser windows.
It is also your responsibility as an internet banking user to have the proper security and protection for your own PCs & home network. This includes but is not limited to:
Have a secured router for home internet access;
Have up-to-date antivirus programs (with up-to-date antivirus definitions);
Have up-to-date anti-spyware/anti-malware programs;
Secured (not open) wifi network if you use wireless internet at your home;
If you suspect your computer is infected, have it cleaned or reinstalled prior to logging back into Internet Banking.
Do not share your Internet Banking password or credentials with anyone else.
