How We Protect You
At Ambler Savings Bank, we use several layers of technology to ensure the confidentiality of your transactions. The security of your online information is imperative to us. We would like to assure you that we have implemented the appropriate security to keep confidential information protected.
Secure Socket Layer
Ambler Savings Bank requires the use of a secure browser to access account information and perform transactions. Secure browsers use secure socket layer (SSL) technology to communicate with servers. This technology encrypts your account information so it’s virtually impossible for anyone other than Ambler Savings Bank to read it.
Online Banking is designed to work with all of the popular internet browsers. We suggest using Internet Explorer 11.0, the most recent version for: Apple Safari, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. If you need additional assistance please contact the e-banking department at 215-646-8400.
To access account information and the secure area of the site, you must provide a username and password. Your password is not displayed when entered. If you do not provide this information, you cannot access our Online Banking services.
Treat your Ambler Savings Bank username and password with the utmost care. Unlike your ATM or credit card PIN, where you need to present the card, here you only need the password. Never reveal your password to anyone and take precautions to keep your computer free from viruses, as some can be used to capture your keystrokes.
When you are going to be away from your computer for an extended amount of time, use the Logout button to end your session. Your current session will also timeout after an extended period of inactivity, and force you to re-enter your username and password.
Communications sent over the public Internet are not necessarily secure. We strongly suggest that you use the electronic communication options provided in our Contact Us site. You may also contact us by phone and US mail.
Ambler Savings Bank does not send out unsolicited e-mails asking for customers to input confidential information. If you receive an e-mail claiming to be from Ambler Savings Bank, do not reply to the message; call us at 215.646.8400.
