Enhanced Security

You can feel confident when conducting online transactions using e-Branch because U.S. government-required layers of security called "e-Branch Enhanced Security" (EES) and "Enhanced Multi-Factor Authentication" (EMFA) are enabled. This security helps protect your online identity, combat "phishing" attacks, and prevent fraud.

After contacting LAFCU during business hours and setting up a secret e-Branch Password, before you access e-Branch you must securely identify yourself as follows:

  1. Enroll your computer with a Verification Code: You will choose to have the Code sent to either your mobile phone, home phone, or email. Once your computer is enrolled, a browser cookie will be placed in it. Each time you or your computer deletes the cookie, you will need to re-authenticate and get another Verification Code. It is recommended that you set your browser to not automatically delete cookies each time you close your Internet browser. Get Help setting up the Verification Code.
  2. Change Your Password: For your protection, you should change your e-Branch Password at least once every three to six months. You can change it yourself 24/7 when inside e-Branch.
  3. Browsers & Operating Systems: e-Branch and all of its features are optimized for use with certified/recommended Internet browsers, including Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.x or 9.x, Firefox 4+, and Safari 5.0. If you use other browsers (like Google Chrome), you may not be able to take full advantage of all e-Branch features. Smartphone and tablet users must use their device’s most current operating system to access e-Branch.
