Home Banking Self-resetting Password Feature Dec. 19, 2012
Beginning Wednesday, December 19, 2012 a much-asked-for new feature will be available on our Home Banking platform, the ability to reset your own password.
The next time you log into Home banking on or after December 19th, a pop up screen will appear that looks like below.
By saying "Yes" and completing this form, the next time you forget your password, you will be able to reset your own by clicking on the "Forgot Your Password" link and answering the security question you chose.
Once you complete this page, you will see the next pop up box confirming your information.
After you click "Continue" you will see this final pop up message.
You can then click on "Main Menu" to review your accounts.
If you say "NO" to choosing and answering your Security Question to reset your password - you run the risk of not being able to reset your password immediately. For example, if you chose not to set up your security question previously and then discovered later on you needed to reset your password, after answering the questions, because of security conditions, you would not be able to reset your password until the following day. If you set up your security question the first time you are asked, there will be no lag time to reset your password.
If you have any questions regarding this new feature of Greater Minnesota Credit Union's Home Banking site, please call 800.808.2830 or eMail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Home Banking Login Passwords
In an effort to continuously provide our members with the highest level of Internet banking security, Greater Minnesota Credit Union will be requiring members who use Home Banking (NetTeller Member Connect) to change their Login Password more frequently.
“It’s a matter of member security” said Eric Kepschull, IT manager for Greater Minnesota Credit Union. “Using the same password for an extended amount of time only increases the chance of Identity Theft. Especially if the password you use for Home Banking is the same one you use for other logins.”
The mandated password change will take place randomly, meaning you may not be prompted to change your password the next time you go to the Login Page for Home Banking but it could be the next time or even the one after that.
Not only will you be asked to enter a new password that MUST contain both letters and numbers, but you will also need to select three (3) “challenge” questions that only you would know the answers to. All of these changes are among “Best Practice” procedures for financial institutions to ensure the safety of your accounts. If you have any questions, please call 800.808.2830 for more information.
