Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

Enrollment

When you log in to Online Banking for the first time from any platform, you will have to enroll in 2FA. As part of the enrollment, you will need to provide your email and phone number. You will have to choose your preferred method of receiving the verification code:

  • Text message via a mobile phone (Recommended)
  • Phone call via a landline
  • Verification code through an authenticator app (Authy is our recommended app for this method)

If you set up a new phone number or enter the incorrect number, you can contact (207) 284-4591 for assistance.

Once you enroll, you will not have to re-enroll unless you choose to reset your 2FA.

2FA phone needs to be accessible each time you login unless you opt into the “remember me” functionality. Please note that certain cookies or browser extensions can cause the “remember me” check to fail upon next login. Due to the uniqueness of each end user’s browser setup, there will always be cases where this affects end users, and we cannot prevent it.

Phone call verification

If you select to receive a phone call instead of a text message, you will receive a verification code in the form of an automated call. The automated phone number may be listed as coming from anywhere in the U.S.

  • The automated call provides a single digit for you to enter on the phone
  • The automated call will then provide a six-digit verification code for you to enter on the banking app you are using (Online or Mobile)

If you do not enter the initial digit, the verification code will not be given, nor will it be left on a voicemail system. If you do not answer the automated call, select the re-send option in the app.

Reset 2FA Enrollment

You can reset your own 2FA enrollment in both Online and Mobile Banking by going to the security settings in your profile page. You can also reset your 2FA by contacting our Customer Care Department at (207) 284-4591.

We recommend you create a new contact in your phone and label it “SBSI Debit Card Fraud Center” under which you can save both of these numbers so that you will recognize any possible incoming calls.

Loans

Principal only payments will be enabled in both Personal Online Banking and Business Online Banking

Loan statements should arrive at about the same time, and likely even a little sooner for your mortgage and consumer loans.

If you plan to make scheduled payments in advance, these payments will be applied as a principal curtailment, not as a scheduled payment. Future payments will still be due. Please contact SBSI’s Loan Servicing for assistance (207) 284-4591.

Escrow Savings

These are accounts in which money is held in the customer’s name and the bank’s name.  This could be for small project renovations, additional construction loan funds, insurance claim proceeds, etc.  In the new digital banking system, users will not have access to view the balances of escrow savings accounts. To make a balance inquiry on your escrow savings, please call Customer Care at (207)284-4591.
