Q. Is the Internet a safe place for me to conduct my banking business?

Never reveal your Texas Bank’s Internet user ID or password to anyone.
If you notice any suspicious or unusual activity related to any of your accounts, please notify Texas Bank immediately.
Q. When I Login to Internet Banking information with Texas Bank Internet Banking, can it be seen by anyone else?
A. No; because of our strict access security, your account information will only be accessible through the use of your Texas Bank Internet User ID and password.
Q. Is electronic mail (e-mail) secure enough to send a private message to Texas Bank?
A. Today, most e-mail messages travel “in the clear” (not encrypted), and can pass through multiple mail servers on route to the receiver, which means that there are numerous opportunities for an e-mail message’s contents to be intercepted and read by someone other than the intended recipient. For this reason, we recommend that you not send “private” information, such as account numbers, user IDs and passwords, via un-encrypted electronic mail. If you need assistance from Texas Bank that requires such information to be submitted to us, please contact us.
Problems Accessing Texas Bank Internet Banking
Q. When I try to access Texas Bank Internet Banking, nothing happens; or I get a message from my browser stating that the host did not respond (or the server was down, or the site could not be opened).
A. After attempting to contact a server computer, a browser will wait a “reasonable” period of time for a response. If a response is not received within that time period, it will “time out” and produce a message to the user stating that there must be a problem with the desired server. While it is possible that there is a problem with the server in this situation, there are many other potential reasons (for example, the server may not have ever received your message, due to a problem with your ISP, or with the routing of your message through the Internet). Whether the problem is encountered trying to access Texas Bank, or some other server on the World Wide Web, try again immediately to access the site in question. If the problem is persistent, try other sites; if most or all sites are inaccessible (indicating some kind of problem with your Internet service), call your ISP’s technical support service for assistance.
Note: If you are using Texas Bank Internet Banking from work, using Internet services provided through your employer’s LAN, you may need technical assistance from your LAN administrator rather than an ISP.
