Franklin American Mortgage Company is committed to utilize the most proven technology to protect your personal information and privacy.
When you sign up for online access, Franklin American Mortgage Company asks you to create your own username and password, to access your account.
This information is encrypted during transmission.
Franklin American Mortgage Company's system will automatically log you off from Franklin American Mortgage Company Website after 90 minutes of inactivity. This reduces the risk of others accessing your information from your unattended computer.
Franklin American Mortgage Company's computer systems are protected 24 hours a day by a powerful firewall that blocks unauthorized entry. In order to gain access to authorized information, the web browser you are using must know the proper protocol, or language, and even then only select information is available.
From the moment account information leaves your computer to the time it enters Franklin American Mortgage Company's system, all online access is encrypted. Franklin American Mortgage Company employs some of the strongest forms of encryption commercially available for use on the Web today.
During any transaction, our 128-bit encryption turns your information into a coded sequence with billions of possible variations, making it nearly impossible for unwanted intruders to decipher. Franklin American Mortgage Company's computers possess the proper formulas to turn this code back into meaningful information and complete your transaction.
Look for a "closed lock" icon in the lower right-hand corner (Microsoft Internet Explorer) or in the right end of the address bar (Firefox 2) or in the top right corner (Safari) or in the lower left-hand corner (Netscape Navigator) of your browser to determine if encryption is being used on any Web page you are viewing. Any Web address beginning with "https://..." indicates the page you are viewing uses encryption. The "s" stands for "secured."
Franklin American Mortgage Company's security team maintains and monitors our security systems to make sure that your accounts are safe and secure.
