Digital Banking FAQ

Two-Factor Authentication Process

What is two-factor authentication?

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an added security feature that helps safeguard your account information.

How to implement 2FA:

  1. Enter an email address and a phone number (mobile or landline).
  2. Once this information is entered, you’ll choose one of three options to receive a one-time verification code:
    1. Text message to the mobile phone entered,
    2. Automated phone call to phone number entered or
    3. Authy Authenticator App (download the app here).
  3. After entering the verification code, you have the option to select “Don’t ask for code again on this computer.” This allows you to avoid having to enter a verification code during each login. This option should never be selected on a shared or public computer.

How does the phone call verification process work?

If you select to receive a phone call (cell phone or landline), you will enter a single specific digit, as directed, before the verification code is provided. If you do not answer the phone call, please note that a second call will not be made automatically and the system will not leave codes on voicemail. Therefore, if you do not answer the authentication phone call, you will need to select the option to have the code re-sent. (Note: The “from” phone number may be listed as coming from anywhere in the US.)

What should I do if I did not receive a verification code to continue with the two-factor authentication enrollment?

Please be sure the phone number you entered is correct. If it needs to be changed, contact our CNB Client Support at 865-429-7521.

How much time do I have to enter the verification code?

Codes received by text or phone are valid for three to six minutes and will expire after that time. On the Authy App, the code changes every 20 seconds.

Can I lock myself out by entering an incorrect verification code?

Yes, you can get locked out if too many attempts are made with an incorrect verification code (more than six times in a single hour). There is no manual reset for this; you will need to wait an hour to try again following your first attempt.

If you make more than 20 unsuccessful attempts in a 24-hour period, your login will be “Suspended,” and you will not be able to attempt again for 24 hours. If you have questions or need additional assistance, please contact the CNB Client Support.

If I selected “Remember this computer,” why am I being asked for a verification code each time I log in?

There are several reasons you may be prompted for a verification code:

  • If you log in on different browsers.
  • If you deleted your browser history.
  • If you have your browser settings set to delete your cookies and history automatically.

Can I receive the two-factor authentication verification code via email?

No, this option is not available. The code can be received using one of the following options:

  • Text message
  • Phone call
  • Authy App (A third-party app that generates a one-time passcode. To register you will need an email address and phone number.)

How can I reset my two-factor authentication?

You can reset your own two-factor authentication in both the app and online by going to your Profile page, then select “Security” within the “Settings” area.
