Bank of Texas is committed to making sure that your online banking is safe and secure. With our security infrastructure in place, we are confident that access to your accounts is private and secure.
Encryption helps protect your private information by scrambling it so that it cannot be intercepted and read by anyone else. When you visit a site that requires encryption, your browser will display a key or a lock. If you are not in a secure area, the key or lock will be broken.
For Microsoft browsers: To check your level of encryption, go to the "File" menu, select "Properties," and then select "Security." Another way is to select "Help" then "About Internet Explorer."
Our firewall protects Bank of Texas's systems by allowing entry only to those who are authorized.
For digital identity verification, the Online Banking system has a digital server certificate by VeriSign that your browser uses each time you sign on to verify that indeed you are connected to Bank of Texas's Online Banking.
While Bank of Texas works to protect your accounts, you also have a role. There are a number of steps you can take to ensure that your online experience on the Internet is safe and secure.
Most importantly, don't reveal your online user ID and password to anyone. Your user ID and password help protect the privacy of your online information. It's a good idea to change your password periodically.
Don't leave your computer unattended if you are in the middle of an Online Banking session.
Once you have finished your Online Banking session, always sign off before visiting other sites on the Internet.
