As an added layer of security, SouthEast Bank’s Mobile Banking App contains a login safeguard in the form of a phone call or text to retrieve a one-time secure code when logging in on a non-registered device. This feature ensures that you are the person actually accessing your accounts online by contacting you at a number on file with the bank whenever your computer, tablet, or phone is not recognized. Any attempt to access your accounts from an unknown device triggers the security process.
