With proper safety measures in place, your Woodsboro Bank
Online transactions remain confidential and safe. The following
measures have been taken to ensure your privacy:
Secure Access and Verifying User Authenticity:
Unique ID and Personal Identification
In order to access Woodsboro Bank's online banking, you must enter
a unique ID and PIN.
Account "Pseudo" Names
Woodsboro Bank allows you to choose a "pseudo name" for
each of your accounts; for example, Checking, Money Market, and
If you are logged on the Woodsboro Bank Online but do not use it
for a 10 minute period , you will have a pop-up box informing you
that you are going to log off because the session has not been used.
You can log off or continue, if you miss this box, it will log you
out and you will have to re-log back into Woodsboro Bank Online.
PIN "lockout" system
To keep unauthorized individuals from accessing your account by
guessing your PIN; we have instituted a PIN lockout system. If your
PIN is entered incorrectly three consecutive times, the user is
"locked out" of the system. You must contact the bank
for your account to be reset and the system to become "unlocked".
Secure Data Transfer:
The latest encryption technology reduces the risk that your confidential
account information could be accessed by another party. Encryption
is a way to rewrite something in a code, which can be decoded later
with the right "key". Your request and information about
your accounts are sent across a private line to the bank.
Other Security Measures:
Router and Firewall
In addition to the above safeguards, sophisticated firewalls and
an authentication process ensure that only authorized individuals
are allowed to enter our system.
When you view or print your statement, only the last four digits
of your account number will be visible. Checks and deposits MICR
line, the area that shows the bank routing number and your account
number, will also not be visible.
