Q: How do I know P2P is secure?
A: The PIN is encrypted so that it never travels across payment channels as your actual, numerical PIN. Additionally, PaySecure requires PIN entry by mouse or touch screen; your PIN cannot be entered by typing the numbers on the keyboard. This security feature will help keep the transaction secure in case your computer is infected with viruses or malware that track keystrokes. For a demo, click here.
Q: How do I know this not a phishing scheme?
A: The “PIN Pad” display after entering your debit card number. Text on the PIN Pad briefly explains how the graphical PIN pad works.
The PIN Pad opens in front of the payment page which is “grayed out” in the background. There is no redirection to another site or “pop-up.” You’ll still be able to see your cardholder information behind the PIN Pad. The PIN Pad is branded with your KFB’s logo and the background matches your debit card. (Some customers may have slightly different card designs.)
The last four digits of the card number will show on the PIN pad (preceded by 12 x’s). Your network logo is on the bottom right of the PIN pad (this matches the network logo on the back of your card.). The PaySecure logo is on the top right of the PIN pad.
Q: What if I enter the wrong PIN?
A: You have two attempts to enter the PIN correctly.
Q: What if I forget my username and password?
A: The username is based on the cardholder’s e-mail address. If the password is forgotten, go to the P2P website and select the “Forgot My Password” command. A new password will be sent to the registered e-mail address. You will be asked to change that password when signing in.
Q: What if I send funds to the wrong number or email address?
A: Call your Customer Solutions Representative at 1-606-929-5000 to get this corrected.
Q: What if I have any other issues or concerns?
A: Call Customer Solutions at 1-606-929-5000 for any issues or concerns related to P2P.
