Multifactor Security


Introducing Stronger Login Security
Login has been updated to utilize multifactor authentication to protect your privacy and the security of your personal information.

Multifactor Authentication: Our stronger login security combines two authentication factors. These factors include:

  • Something You Know (your Login Id and Password)
  • Something You Have (your computer is used as a second factor.)

With our stronger login security, a secure authentication is instantly performed when you login. This allows us to confirm who you are and allow you to complete your login. If we cannot confirm your identity, we will ask you one of the Challenge Questions you have selected to which only you will know the answer. If you answer the Challenge Question correctly, your identity will be confirmed and you can proceed.

Multifactor authentication protects you against a broad range of fraud. Even if fraudsters steal your Password, they will not be able to successfully login without successfully answering your Challenge Question.

Our New Login Method

  1. First, you'll enter your Login ID, password and click the Submit button.
  2. If we recognize the computer you are using, you will be allowed access to the site.
  3. If we do not recognize the computer you are using, we will ask you a Challenge Question to confirm your identity. If you answer your Challenge Question correctly, you will be allowed access to the site.
