Online Security

How does OSB utilize Enhanced Online Security?

Your security is extremely important to us. Oostburg State Bank incorporates the use of firewalls, encryption , user authentication, and passwords to ensure that only you have access to your accounts. OSB uses Extended Validation SSL Certificates to ensure the access to your account information is secure.

What is the Extended Validation SSL Certificate?

It is a more secure site certificate that enables special features in client browsers to demonstrate increased trust in the site they are accessing. 

How will I know when I am accessing an enhanced site?

For most users accessing a site with an Extended Validation SSL Certificate, the URL bar will turn green and you will see UFS, LLC listed.  All major browsers have slightly different methods of displaying an EV enabled website.  Below are examples of how the top three browsers display their URL’s:

Internet Exporer

EV_IE

Google Chrome

EV_Chrome

Mozilla Firefox

EV_Firefox

Why don't I see the green bar?

You may be using an older or outdated browser. Internet Explorer 9 and Windows XP are "older" versions of Microsoft products and have limited or no Microsoft support as a result. It is always best practice to be on the supported versions of operating systems and internet browser.

What will I see when logging into Online Banking?

When you click on your online banking link you will be prompted for your username and password. If you are on a non-registered computer, you will be prompted for one of your security challenge questions. The username and password prompt will look like this:
