Online Security Statement
Your transactions are absolutely safe. Farmers State Bank & Trust works with the most advanced technology partners to ensure that the most secure environment is made possible for our valued customers. You can be completely confident of the following security measures:
Our system ensures that data exchanged between your PC and our computer is encrypted with the strongest encryption available.
Our computer system does not connect directly to the internet. It is isolated from the network via a "firewall". A firewall is a combination of software and hardware products that designate parameters, and control and limit the access that outside computers have to the Bank's internal networks and databases. You can feel secure knowing that our firewall protects your personal information from unauthorized access.
User IDs and passwords are isolated from the Internet by being stored in secure locations. This ensures that your credentials can never be accessed or downloaded by anyone on the internet. The system also checks for invalid logins and automatically disallows a user after three invalid attempts. This prohibits the "hacker" from gaining access to our system, thus protecting your accounts.
You will be responsible for maintaining one of the most important security measures: your password. When you register your online banking password, be sure to keep it confidential. Memorize it, or write it down and keep it in a safe place. It is not recommended you carry your password in your purse or wallet. Make sure no one watches you enter your password, and always close your browser when leaving the computer. Make sure you regularly scan your computer for viruses that could be used to capture password keystrokes. You ultimately hold the key to your password security. Not even a bank employee has access to your password.
