Frequently Asked Questions
While we've made every effort to provide all the information you may need about our cyber-services, we know you may still have some questions. We've listed the most frequently asked ones below. However, we're always glad to discuss our online banking services in person or over the phone. Stop in or call any Bank of Granite office for more information.
What kind of browser do I need?
Granite Online Banking requires that your browser process cookies and java script. 128 bit SSL encryption is also required.
What happens if I do not exit the system?
By default Granite Online Banking has a ten minute time out feature, so if the system is not used for ten minutes, then the user will be inactive and will have to log in again.
What happens if I forget my password and get locked out?
You are allowed three password attempts, and on the third try, if invalid, you will be locked out of the system. If you do get locked out or if you forget your password, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact your local Bank of Granite office. For your convenience, you may also contact us from the Password Reset tab located at the upper right of the login page.
How late in the evening can I make transfers?
The cut-off time for current day transfers is 7:00 p.m. Any transfers after the cut-off time will be posted on the next business day.
