Multi-factor Authentication

Central Coast Federal Credit Union takes its position of protecting its member foundation very seriously, and as your financial solution we are implementing a new form of authentication for our online home banking which is known as Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). We have always provided a secure and encrypted connection to our Online banking service, and now we are giving you an additional layer of security for your online transactions.

In an ongoing effort to protect members’ critical account information on-line, Central Coast Federal Credit Union will begin MFA on the 29th of January. MFA protects you against phishing scams and other common consumer fraud activity. Upon logging into your Online Banking account, MFA will require a multi-step login process. You will no longer be able to login using only an account number and a password. Once MFA has been implemented, you will be asked to enter additional information to verify account access. Multi-factor authentication makes it more difficult for hackers to retrieve critical account information. This added security feature is just another way your credit union provides you with the credit union difference. If we can help you reach answers regarding the multi-factor authentication process or if you would like to sign up for Online Banking, please contact the credit union. Online Banking provides members with 24/7 account access for FREE!
