Atlantic Community Bank will never ask for personal or confidential information such as account number, social security number, password, or PIN in an email. We also will not send you an email with a link to a website that asks for any such information.
Increase Your Protection with a Security Token
A Security Token is an online security credential that adds an extra layer of identity protection when you login to your online banking. Tokens are portable devices that can easily be attached to your keychain.
Using a token protects your accounts and your identity by requiring a higher level of security when you conduct online transactions. To use a token, press the button on the token to generate a six-digit security code that is unique to your credential. Then, login to your online banking with your user name, password, and the unique security code.
