Protect your online banking experience.

While shopping online or logging into an online account, many of you have probably checked the box that prompts you to verify “I am not a robot”,  but what does that really mean? Many web services, including MidWest America’s Digital Banking, accessed by a web browser, use technology called CAPTCHA to thwart attack methods and resultant unauthorized access. The acronym stands for Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart.  This technology helps digital systems to ensure that only a human with your username and password can login to your account.

CAPTCHA Verification has been proven very successful in reducing unauthorized access to online accounts by adding authentication measures and diminishing the success of automated attack methods. The added security measure generates a simple image test which a human can solve, but a computer cannot. CAPTCHA relies on a human’s ability to generalize and recognize patterns.

MidWest America continually looks for ways to help safeguard your accounts. CAPTCHA was implemented on our digital banking platform to protect our members from online fraud.  If you would like more information on other ways to protect your account and identity, please visit our Account Security or Blog pages.
