Frequently Asked Questions

You spoke and we listened. We have simplified our Online and Mobile Banking into one seamless platform. The same look and features are consistent across both platforms, and the experience provides convenience with enhanced security, and new features and functionality.

Freedom’s new Online Banking platform has many features that members have asked to have.

Among them are:

  • Streamlined login access for both Online and Mobile Banking
  • Seamless look and consistency of features across all devices
  • Better security with two-factor authentication
  • Ability to add notes, tags, and pictures to your transactions

No. If you already have our Mobile Banking app, you will not need to download it again. If you don’t currently use Mobile Banking, you’ll find the Apple app in the Apple App Store and the Android app on Google Play.

There is no need to enroll in Online Banking if you are currently enrolled in Online Banking. You will be able to login in with your existing credentials on either the new Online Banking site or the Mobile Banking app. If you are having trouble logging in, you can reset your password to recover access to your account. Existing users may be asked to complete additional verification steps upon initial login to the new system.

If you have not previously used Online Banking, then you will have to go through the enrollment process. Enrollment can be done using our Mobile Banking app or on the Online Banking site.

You can access the new Online Banking and your account on a desktop, laptop, mobile phone, or other internet-accessible device. Simply log in with your existing credentials to both online and mobile banking. There are two access points:

1) Visit our freedomfcu.org website and click Login to get started

2) Download the Mobile Banking app from the Google Play or Apple Store

 

Note: You will not be able to access the website via old bookmarks or saved passwords

Two-Factor Authentication is a security measure that allows you to request a one-time access code to log in to Online Banking. The code enhances the security by creating an added layer on top of your unique username and password. This security process helps to verify you and better protect your credentials and the accounts you can access. You can view our detailed Two-Factor Authentication Resource Document if you are having trouble.

 

No. Check the “Don’t ask for codes again on this computer” box if you do not want to receive a confirmation code or phone call each time you log in. If you prefer to input a confirmation code with each use, you can leave the box unchecked or use the Two-Factor Authentication app to deliver the code.

Note: If you ever want to remove a device and reset your security settings, you can change them in settings once logged in to online banking.

Two-Factor authentication uses a unique one-time access code to verify identity and to log into Online Banking. If you are unable to receive text (SMS) messages, you can choose to receive your access code via an automated phone call or an authentication app called Authy. For step-by-step information on those authentication methods, view our Two-Factor Authentication Resource Document.

If you are still having trouble, contact the credit union to ensure we have the correct phone number on file.

 

While an email and a phone number are required for the two-step authentication, the one-time access code will be sent via text, phone call, or the Authy app. The phone number must match our records for the additional security layer to work correctly.
