Yes. Our Online Banking customers are required to use a browser with one of the highest forms of encryption available for today's popular browsers. This means that information passing from your computer to our server is scrambled, making it virtually impossible for anyone to access your account information. Our system uses Multifactor Authentication, which protects against phishing, pharming and dictionary attacks, as well as keystroke-logging viruses. This system protects against online fraud by providing an additional end user authentication factor beyond the customer number and Password logons. Multifactor Authentication works by recognizing the computer terminal that you used to sign up for Online Banking. If you use another computer to log on to Online Banking, our system will recognize this and ask you to answer a series of security questions that you selected when you enrolled in Apple Bank Online Banking.

If you are unable to login to your Online Banking service, please refer to Online Banking Login Help for detailed instructions. It’s also helpful to review these common reasons why you might be having trouble logging in:

  • Incorrect User ID or Password. Be sure you are entering your case-sensitive User ID and Password correctly.
  • Pending Online Banking Registration. You can't access the system until your registration is finalized.
  • Old Page Stuck in Cache. An older version of your login page may be stuck in a special folder called a cache. Clear your cache and try again or review our Browser Compatibility Guide.
  • Problem with Web Browser Version or Settings. Make sure you are using the most updated browser version to view our site. If you're already doing that, try reinstalling the browser.
  • Problem with Modem. This service recommends using a modem speed of 28.8 or higher. However, the speed at which you actually connect to the Internet may vary. Also, performance results may vary when using cable modems due to differences in duplex technology offered by cable providers.
  • Interactive TV. Our Online Banking service does not currently support interactive TV because TV browsers may not conform to generally accepted web standards, resulting in inconsistent online sessions.
  • Enabling Cookies. In order to provide optimal security, performance and reliability, this service requires that cookies be enabled on your browser. Cookies are a small piece of information that a web server can store on your browser so the system recognizes your actions during a session

Other reasons why you are unable to log in may be due to temporary ATM network, institution or web server unavailability, or other system errors. In most cases, an error message will be displayed, with instructions as available. In these cases, please try to log in at a later time.

Finally, the Internet Service Provider (ISP) that provides your access may be experiencing an outage, peak usage, or other network problem.
