In today’s fast-paced digital world, it’s no secret that convenience and security are paramount when it comes to banking transactions. This is precisely why Keystone Bank upgraded the KeyMobile app, designed to enhance your banking experience by making it faster, more convenient, and, most importantly, safer.

While convenience is undoubtedly a top priority, it’s equally crucial to address the heightened risks of cyberattacks that come with it. To ensure the utmost safety for our customers, we strongly recommend that you enable two-factor authentication (2FA) for your KeyMobile app. In this article, we will delve into the importance of 2FA and shed light on why it serves as a vital line of defense against the ever-looming cyber threats.

What is 2FA?

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a robust security measure that provides an additional layer of protection beyond just a password. When 2FA is enabled, accessing your account requires not only your password but also a second factor which could be an SMS OTP, Last 6 digits of debit card, or soft/hard token.

 Why should you enable 2FA on the KeyMobile app?

  • To protect against unauthorized access: 2FA adds an extra layer of protection, making it harder for unauthorized individuals to access your KeyMobile app.
  • For Password protection: Even if your password is compromised, a second authentication factor (e.g., a temporary code sent to your phone) ensures that only you can access your KeyMobile app.
  • To secure financial transactions: 2FA serves as a robust deterrent against unauthorized transactions, particularly when conducting large transfers. Even if someone gains access to your login credentials no transaction can be completed without the second factor.
  • For Peace of Mind: Knowing that your money is protected by 2FA can provide a sense of security and you can enjoy the convenience of mobile banking without the constant worry of potential breaches.
