Online Banking Security
Plaza Bank recognizes that delivering online banking services requires a solid security framework that protects you and our institutional data from outside intrusion. We are committed to working with our Internet, information technology, and communications service providers to produce the safest operating environment possible for our customers.

To deter unauthorized login attempts, the Online Banking system will lock the user out after three unsuccessful attempts.

To that end, we highly recommend that you:

Do not allow your browser to automatically save your Password.
Do not leave you computer unattended during an Online Banking session.
Log out of the Online Banking System when you are finished with your Online Banking session.
