Site Security

At MainSource bank, our customer’s safety and security is very important. We use a variety of technologies and techniques to help ensure that our products and services are secure. A Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is protecting you while you visit our site. A SSL creates a secure, encrypted link between your browser and our web server.

Our Secure Socket Layer (SSL) ensures all data passed between our web server and browser remains private and secure, allowing you to identify your legitimate website from spoofed domains. With this solution, there is no back and forth traffic between websites and servers. Once customers enter our secure site, they rarely need to leave our site, virtually eliminating opportunities for hackers.

The system includes an unmistakable mark of protection: a visual lock symbol at the bottom of the screen. This symbol should always be present before you proceed with any on-line transactions. Do not enter information on a site that does not display your URL preceded with “https” along with the lock symbol.

You can help protect yourself by making an effort to control risks when you use your personal computer to conduct business on-line.
