Fifth Third Bank values your business and the trust you have placed in us. We take the security of your accounts and confidential information very seriously and employ a variety of tools, techniques, and processes to help protect them and make your online banking experience as secure as possible:

  • Encryption – Fifth Third Bank uses the highest standards of encryption available, including the use of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, which prevents data from being read, if intercepted during transmission.
  • Automatic Time Out – If you are logged into Fifth Third Online Banking and fifteen minutes pass with no activity, your session will automatically time out and you will need to log back in.
  • Enhanced Authentication – Fifth Third Bank has technology in place that tracks the characteristics of your login session and determines if it is high risk. Depending upon the particular scenario, denial of access may be appropriate to safeguard your information. If access is denied, you will need to use a computer to access Internet banking.
