Secure Login

User IDs and passwords are isolated from the Internet by being stored on North Georgia National Bank's computer. This insures that the passwords and IDs can never be accessed or downloaded by anyone on the Internet. Additionally, user passwords can vary from four to eight characters, which means the chance of randomly guessing a password is less than one in one billion!. The system also checks for invalid logins and automatically disallows a user after three invalid attempts. This prohibits the "hacker" from gaining access to our system, thus protecting your accounts.

You will be responsible for maintaining one of the most important security measures: your password. When you receive your North Georgia National Bank's online banking password, be sure to keep it confidential. Memorize it, or write it down and keep it in a safe place.
