Q. How do I know the site is secure?
A. The system uses a Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to verify that your account is being accessed legitimately. The first time you log in to CFCU anywhere from a new device, you will be prompted to go through a few steps to enroll your computer and set up the MFA. This enhanced security feature remembers your computer and assigns a cookie (a unique identifier) to each computer you use to access online banking.
Q. What is the purpose of bookmarking the site?
A. Bookmarking allows CFCU anywhere to place a cookie on your computer to recognize you as a registered online banking user. You will still be prompted to enter your user ID and password each time you log in.

A. No. If you would prefer, you can use the public option to access the site each time you wish to log in. Please note that the first time you log in you are required to register a device as part of the security verification setup. Using the public option will require you to request and use a Virtual Token.
Q. Why does my bookmark appear to not be working?
A. This could be caused by your device deleting cookies or updating your browser. In this case, follow the prompts on the screen to request a Virtual Token and create a new bookmark. If you create a new bookmark, be sure to delete the old one.
Q. Can I register multiple devices?
A. Yes, you may register multiple computers or phones. Each device should be given a different name (“Work Computer,” “Home Laptop,” “John’s iPhone,” etc.).
Q. Can multiple users register the same device?
A. Yes; however, it is recommended that different names be used for the bookmarks when registering the device to avoid any confusion (“Home Computer – John,” “Home Computer – Mary,” etc.).
Q. How do I change my registered devices?
A. After logging in, click on Your Preferences, and then on the Member Preferences tab. On the right-hand side of the screen, click on “View and/or Change Registered Computers, E-mails and Phone Numbers for Tokens and Bookmarks.” The following screen will allow you to remove your enrolled devices, create a new bookmark, and add or change enrolled email addresses or phone numbers.
Q. Can I access my account online from a public computer?
A. Yes, you may use public computers to access your account, but the first time you log in, it should be done on a trusted computer. (A device must first be enrolled before you can use the public computer option. You do not want to “enroll” a public computer.) When you attempt to log in from a public computer, you will be prompted to request a virtual token (security code) sent to you via email, phone, or text message. Once you have entered the code, you will then have access to your information.
Q. Does the virtual token expire?
A. Yes. Tokens must be validated within thirty minutes of receipt. Simply enter the token number sent to you by phone or email to proceed. If you have requested that the token be sent to you via email, instead of entering the token number to proceed, you may click on the link provided to you within the token email. This step will take you to the login screen again. Simply login with your login ID and password to continue.
Q. What if I don’t receive the token I requested?
A. It is possible that the email address or telephone number associated with your Internet banking is invalid.
