Does StarNet Work With Quicken; and Microsoft Money;?
Yes. Information can also be downloaded to spreadsheets such as Microsoft Excel; as well as other financial management software.
Can I Access My Accounts From More Than One Location?
Yes. You can access your accounts from anywhere, with the exception of certain blocked countries, as long as you have Internet accessibility. Our multi-factor authentication security feature may require you to authorize a computer the first time you use it to access StarNet.
How Does Multi-Factor Authentication Help Secure My Online Transactions?
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) requires that you log on with "something you have" such as a one time password generator or a cookie, and "something you know" such as a username and password. Our Personal banking product uses a cookie placed on your computer during sign-up that marks your computer as authorized to access StarNet. Some of our Business banking products do require the use of a one-time password generator. If you need assistance with MFA, please call our customer service line at (940) 383.6200, Option 1, or send a secure message through our Contact Us form.
What Protection Do I Have Regarding Passwords?
You are in control of your password and can change it at anytime. Initially, the system will give you a temporary password that MUST be changed when you access Online Banking the first time. This will provide the security and reassurance that no one, not even bank personnel, will know your password.
Can I Transfer Funds Between Accounts?
Yes. You can also set up a transfer to happen in the future in case you won't be able to access Online Banking on the day you want to make the transfer. If funds are not available in the account at the time the transfer takes place, the transfer will not be completed.
Can I Pay My Bills Online?
Yes. Along with paying your bills online, you can sign up for e-Bills. You can also set up reoccurring payments and schedule and view payments all from the same screen. You must enroll in Online Banking before you can take advantage of the bill payment service.
