As part of Tyco Federal Credit Union’s commitment to continue providing our members with an enhanced and secure Online Banking experience, we are implementing changes to the log-in process for all members. In addition, we are introducing an online password reset feature for members who may need to reset their forgotten Online Banking password.
**Please review our frequently asked questions (FAQs) regarding these enhancements.**
A. Yes. In order to enhance the security of your Online Banking experience, we are introducing and requiring members to choose a Username to access your accounts online. Logging in with your account number will no longer work.
A. No. You are not required to change your existing password. The system requires that you enter your password to proceed to the next step. You may choose to change your current password at this time but it is not necessary.
A. Using the Username tied to your account number is more secure than merely entering an account number during the log-in process.
A. The Username is a unique log-in ID that you create. It replaces your account number when logging into Online Banking.
A. Choosing a Username will help increase your online security when logging into Online Banking. Additionally, by choosing a Username, you will be able to take advantage of the reset password online feature. All owners on the account will be uniquely identified and can establish their own password and language options.
A. Yes, you may choose any username that is not already in use. It must start with an alphabetic character, must contain only letters and numbers (no special characters are allowed), must be 8-20 characters in length AND it cannot be the same as your access code or account number.
A. Some special characters are set to stop or start programming script and can interfere with the log-in process.
A. Starting on July 27th, please click on the “No Username, Click Here” link at the bottom of the log-in prompt. Follow the instructions on the screen. If you need assistance, please call our Member Contact Center at 1-888-673-3288.

A. No need to worry! One of our Financial Service Representatives or your Personal banker can assist you. Please call us 888-673-3288.
A. The original set of questions you created are used during the identification and log on process and detect any unusual login activity such as a different computer used than before. The security questions in this process will be used only for the password reset option. By having two sets of questions, you are better protected from someone trying to hijack your account by obtaining a new password.

You have the option of choosing this service during Username setup or anytime afterwards. If you decide not to choose this service, you will need to call us at 888-673-3288 during our normal business hours, Monday through Friday, to reset your password.
A. It’s so easy! We’ve made it part of the enrollment process with the Username registration. If you didn’t set it up at that time, you can select this option from within Online Banking by clicking “Change Login Profile”. There you will see the option to change your preference to reset your password via email.
A. There are many sites that provide access to free email. More popular ones include Yahoo, Hotmail and Gmail.
If you have any further questions or need more assistance, please contact one of our Financial Service Representatives at our toll free number 1-888-673-3288 or your Personal Banker during normal business hours.
A: For security reasons, anytime you change your email address, the Password Reset Option will be inactive for 24 hours after the change.
