Security Questions

I'm still uncertain about online banking. Can other people see my account information?

Your account information is just as secure as it is at any of our physical locations. We have ensured that our systems meet the latest security standards, including using the latest encryption methods and software. Only authorized persons, who have signed up for McKinley NetLink, may access their accounts online.

What is encryption and how does it make McKinley NetLink secure?

Encryption is a method of mathematically altering data for transmission to the host. The higher the number of bits (128-bit in the case of McKinley NetLink) the more secure your connection is. The host then decodes this data using a key pre-determined at the beginning of your online banking session. Thus, your PC and the host computer are the only participants in this secure transaction.

How can I tell if I have a secure connection to McKinley NetLink?

The indicators of a secure connection for the supported browsers are listed below:

Netscape Navigator 4.07 – An icon of a lock will appear in the bottom left corner of your browser. If it is in a locked position, you have a secure connection. If it is unlocked, you have an unsecured connection.

Microsoft Internet Explorer - In version 6, a small lock will appear in the lower-right corner of the browser in the status bar to signify an encrypted connection. In version 7, a small lock will appear next to the address bar (towards the top right) to signify an encrypted connection. If there is no lock, you do not have a secure connection.

Please note: while on this page and other general information pages of the Mt. McKinley Bank website, all indicators will show an unsecured connection. This will change to a secure connection upon entering the McKinley NetLink portion of the site.


Multi-Factor Authentication

I sometimes access McKinley NetLink from a public computer, like at an Internet café or at work. Can I still use those types of computers to do my Internet banking?

Yes, you can continue to use public computers to access NetLink. As part of your enrollment in the Multi-Factor authentication process from your home computer (or other non-public computer you regularly use), you will complete a series of challenge questions. If you need to access NetLink from a non-public computer, you will be provided with an additional confirmation process using the challenge questions, and then will be granted access to the system.

Am I required to enroll in Multi-Factor Authentication?

Yes, we are requiring all McKinley NetLink users to enroll in Multi-Factored Authentication for their security. We’re confident that you will find the process easy to use and convenient.

Why should I register my computer?

Each computer has a unique set of characteristics, similar to a fingerprint. By registering the computer, its unique set of characteristics will be stored by Mt. McKinley Bank and used as additional validation criteria during logins. If you choose not to register a computer, you will be presented with a different validation process consisting of challenge questions/answers. Thus, we encourage you to register your computer and make for a more convenient, yet secure, login process.

Is there a limitation on the number of computers I may register?

There is no limit on the number of computers you may register.
