Online Banking Upgrade

26 Jul

Central Star is upgrading the online banking system starting August 6th, 2013.

Central Star is committed to keeping your money safe while providing you with easy access to your accounts. We are pleased to announce a new security upgrade to your Online Banking account. This upgrade is based on new government guidelines for safe and strong user IDs and passwords to make Online Banking even more secure. These new security standards will make it even safer for you to monitor and manage your money while safeguarding against unauthorized access to your accounts.

Important Note: Beginning August 6, 2013, your member account number can no longer be used as your username.

This upgrade will include the following:


Strengthened Online Banking Username and Password

Strengthened Mobile App Security

  • What to expect after the Mobile App upgrade

Beginning August 6, 2013, a one-time passcode will be required to access your Central Star account through the mobile app. You will have the option to have this passcode sent to you via email, text or phone call. This authentication is a cookie-based setting and normally will only be required once after the upgrade is complete. Please refer to your device’s privacy settings for more information. This upgrade will occur on August 6, 2013, for Android users but will be delayed 4-6 weeks for Apple iOS users. In the meantime, members can still use their iPhones/iPads to access their account by going to the full site browser of our webpage to log in.
