Attention Online Banking Users

May 31, 2017

Discontinuation of support for older browsers

Peoples Trust Company takes your online security very seriously.  In order to provide our customers with a reliable and secure connection to our Online Banking services, on June 27, 2017, Online Banking will only be accessible using the most current version of your preferred browser. (For example, Firefox, Chrome, Safari or Internet Explorer).

If you don’t update your browser by June 27, 2017, you may experience service interruptions as we will not support connections with out of date browsers past that date. 

If you have the latest version, you should be fine but if you are having issues, try enabling TLS 1.1 and 1.2. Here are some settings which may help:  (If your browser is not listed, search for your product's specific instructions)
