Secure Communications: Our system ensures that data exchanged between Your Computer and our computers is encrypted with 128-bit encryption – the strongest encryption available. Encryption is accomplished through Secure Sockets Layers (SSL) which utilizes mathematical formulas to “encrypt” or hide information from prying eyes on the internet. Additionally, if SSL detects that data was added or deleted after you sent it to the bank, the connection will be severed in order to guard against any tampering. The most popular browsers have the SSL security feature built in. To verify your session is secure, ensure that https: instead of http: is located in the address line on your web browser, and that a secure symbol (for example a closed padlock) is located on the status bar of your browser at the lower portion of the screen.  The symbol https: is correct for use of the Services and West Alabama Bank is not liable for any loss you may incur as due to your failure to ensure that the correct denotation appears in the address line on your web browser.
