What is a cookie?

A cookie is a piece of securely-coded information sent by Pauls Valley National Bank to your computer when you enroll in online banking. Cookies include a randomly generated, unique number used as a sign in or registration identifier. Every time you log in from that same computer, your Web browser then sends us back this cookie, which is a security feature that lets us know that you’re using your own computer.

I share my computer with someone who also uses Online Banking. Can both of us sign in from this computer?

Yes. You can both use the same computer to sign in to your individual Online Banking account safely; you won’t see each other’s information. There’s no limit to how many people can sign in to Online Banking at Pauls Valley National Bank from the same computer. Just remember not to share your Access ID, Password or answers to your challenge questions.

What type of browser is necessary to access online banking?

To ensure the highest security, a browser using 128-bit encryption is required.

Bill Pay Questions

What is bill payment and is there a fee?

Pauls Valley National Bank Online Banking offers a bill payment feature in which you can pay all of your bills. This service is for personal checking accounts with Pauls Valley National Bank. Fees only occur if using expedited payments types and are imposed by the receiving merchant not Pauls Valley National Bank.

ConnectKey Questions

What is ConnectKey?

ConnectKey is an enhanced security feature that is now a standard part of your Pauls Valley National Bank.Com Online Banking log in routine. Pauls Valley National Bank is always working to protect you against identity theft and fraud. ConnectKey will add to this protection by preventing unauthorized access to your accounts while reassuring that you’re at the valid Pauls Valley National Bank website. ConnectKey consists of three parts: an image, pass phrase and three challenge questions that are secrets between you and Pauls Valley National Bank. All three parts help protect you, whether you’re signing in to Online
Banking from your own computer or from somewhere else (such as work or a public computer lab).

Why do I need ConnectKey?

ConnectKey helps to ensure your information is secure by protecting you from fraud and identity theft in two ways. First, it helps you recognize that you’re at the valid Online Banking site at Pauls Valley National Bank, rather than a fraudulent lookalike site. Secondly, you can trust that we also recognize you as the true owner of your account. We’ll ask you one of your challenge questions if we don’t recognize your computer which is an additional line of defense against unauthorized access to your accounts.

What if someone steals my Password? How will ConnectKey prevent them from accessing my account?

When an unauthorized person tries to sign in from another computer, we will recognize that they’re using a different computer, and so we’ll ask one of your challenge questions. They won’t know the answer and will be unable to log in to your account.

Why do I need to set up challenge questions?

Challenge questions help prevent unauthorized people from getting access to your Online Banking information. That way, even if they’ve stolen your Access ID and Password, they won’t know the answer to the secret question. And if someone signs in from a computer that we don’t recognize (for example, if you sign in from a public library), we’ll ask you a challenge question to verify that it’s really you.

What keeps somebody from stealing my ConnectKey image and pass phrase?

After you click on the Submit button, we only show your ConnectKey image and pass phrase automatically if you sign in from a computer we recognize as your computer. If you’re at a different computer, we ask one of your challenge questions before showing the image.

When I enter my Access ID, it asks me a question instead of showing my ConnectKey image. Why?

This is to help verify that it’s really you signing in. We ask a challenge question when you sign in from a computer we don’t recognize. Your correct answer confirms that it’s really you.

How do I know I’m at the genuine Online Banking site?

ConnectKey will help you figure that out. Type the correct address (www.PVNB.com) into your Web browser. When you arrive at the site and enter your Access ID, click on the Submit button and your secret Connectkey image and pass phrase will appear. That’s confirmation that you’re at the bank’s legitimate Web site. If you do not see your secret image and pass phrase, and are not asked your secret challenge question, do not enter your Password. Since this may represent a fraudulent website, please report this immediately to us at 405-238-9321 Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

How does Pauls Valley National Bank know that I’m signing in from my own computer?

When you sign up for our ConnectKey service, we put a secure cookie on your computer. This cookie contains a randomly generated, unique number used as an identifier. When you sign in after that, your Web browser will send us this cookie, which lets us know that you’re using your own computer. The cookie is visible only to the Online Banking site at Pauls Valley National Bank and does not contain any personal information.

Can I access Online Banking from multiple computers?

Yes, you can access Online Banking from any number of computers and have the same ConnectKey protections. If you sign in from a computer that you haven’t used for Online Banking before, you just need to answer one of your challenge questions to verify your identity. Once you answer the question correctly, we will ask you if you would like us to recognize that computer in the future. If you answer yes, you will not need to answer a challenge question in the future.

What if I get a new computer?

You will need to answer one of your challenge questions to verify your identity. Once you answer the question correctly, we will ask you if you want to recognize that computer in the future. If you answer yes, you will not need to answer a challenge question again.

Can I change my ConnectKey image, pass phrase and challenge questions?

Yes, you can change your ConnectKey image, pass phrase and challenge questions at any time. We will never ask you to change your ConnectKey information and we will never change it for you. To make the change, sign in to Online Banking and go to the Options tab at the top of the page. Then click Change Security Data.

Is there a fee for using the ConnectKey service?

ConnectKey is free. It’s just part of our ongoing commitment to safeguard your privacy and security.
