Online Banking FAQs

1. What is Online Banking/Mobile Banking?

Online Banking, which includes Mobile Banking, is the Online Banking Service of Pacific National Bank that allows customers to do banking online from anywhere with Internet access and a computer or smartphone. Customers can check account balances, today's deposit(s), transfer funds, view images of posted checks or deposit slips, send and receive secure messages, re-order checks, receive e-statements, eDocuments,  and more.  If eligible, bill pay and mobile deposit are also available.

2. When can I access Online Banking?

Online Banking is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except when system maintenance or upgrades are being performed.

3. How can I get started?

Once you are registered with Pacific National Bank's Online Banking Service and have received an Enrollment ID Number (UserID) and a temporary PIN (Personal Identification Number), you will be prompted during the initial login process to enter a new password of your choosing. Your user password will be authenticated during the login process. Application forms are available after you have selected "Enroll".

4. Is the access secure?

Pacific National Bank has taken strong measures to keep your assets safe and your account information private. We use layers of security to protect your financial data.

Encryption Technology. We require the use of a secure browser before a connection can be made to Pacific National Bank's Online Banking Service. A secure browser will use encryption technology (Secure Sockets Layer or SSL) to scramble your information, making it useless to hackers, as it passes across the Internet.

Firewall of Protection. For added security, we have your data pass through a "firewall" which is a computer specifically designed to keep out unauthorized users.

Access Limited by You. Finally, to ensure that only you can access your accounts we require a valid Customer Identification Number (UserID) and PIN (Personal Identification Number) or Password, before you can log in.

Automatic Log off. For your security, our Online Banking Service will automatically end your Internet Banking session if there is no activity on your PC for 3 minutes. Always remember to Log Off and then close your browser window.

5. What are the System Requirements?

There are no special requirements. All you need is a computer with a connection to the Internet along with one of the following: The current version or one of the two most recent major releases of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, or Chrome. Please note that utilizing older browser versions may result in disabled functionality or limited access to services. Additionally, you must set your display resolution to 800x600 and the browser text size to medium.

The supported browsers are for use with the traditional online banking interface and devices (desktops/laptops), and do not apply for use with mobile devices (phones/tablets). If you are using a phone or tablet to access online banking outside of an "APP", functionality and appearance may vary from the traditional online banking interface. Beta versions are not supported.

6. How much does Online Banking cost?

Online Banking and Mobile Banking are free of charge.  Bill Pay (to payees domiciled within the U.S. only) and Mobile Deposit (domestic accounts only) for consumers are also free of charge, but are billable for business accounts.  See Schedule of Charges.

7. How often can I change my password?

You can change your password as often as you would like.

8. Forgot your Customer Access Number or PIN?

If so, you have only three chances to enter it correctly. If the third attempt fails, you will be locked out and unable to access your account online.
