2-Step Verification Coming Soon

Date: September 18, 2023

Your safety is our top priority, so we continuously invest in new tools and features to keep your personal and financial information safe. Westoba will soon introduce 2-step verification (2SV) for online banking and the WestobaGO Mobile App to better protect your information.

2SV helps safeguard your money against fraud by creating an extra barrier that is harder for cybercriminals to break through. 2SV is an essential step towards keeping your accounts safer, giving you peace of mind knowing you are better protected.

Please keep your eyes out for more information and the next steps for your 2SV enrollment.

How 2-step verification protects your information


2SV is a second way to confirm your identity when signing into your accounts through online banking or the WestobaGO Mobile App. 2SV adds an extra layer of protection by requiring you to enter a single-use verification code in addition to your PAC (Personal Access Code) before you can access your account.

When enrolling for 2SV, you will be asked to choose a primary email or mobile phone number to send a single-use verification code. This verification code will ensure that you, and only you, have access to your account.

* Westoba will never ask for personal or financial information like account numbers, PINs, codes, or passwords through email or text message or ask you to click on any links when prompted for 2SV.
