The cache memory

Cache memory is a temporary memory in your Web browser (e.g. Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari, etc.) that saves a copy of the latest pages that you've viewed.

When you return to a previously viewed page, the browser retrieves the content from the cache instead of the actual website. In a nutshell, cache memory speeds up the retrieval and display time when surfing the web.

After each session, make sure to clear your browser's cache memory or history to prevent your confidential data from being viewed by any one else.

To find out how to clear the cache memory, type the name of your browser in a search engine such as Google.

MY PROFILE SECTION

Contact information
View, review and modify your contact information with the Laurentian Bank. For example, remember to update your contact information when moving.

Current information
This section displays your contact information on file with the Laurentian Bank, including:

  • your full address;
  • phone number;
  • email.

New contact information
You can update your contact information in a flash.

Change your password
You can change your LBCDirect password at any time under this section. Don't hesitate to change it often, especially if you suspect that someone else knows your password.
Remember that your password should be comprised of a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 20 alphanumeric characters (letters and numbers only), with a least one letter and one digit. Your password can't contain special characters such as $%?&! or capital letters.
Remember your password because it will be active on your next LBCDirect session!

Choose a secure password
A good password is not necessarily complicated. Instead, it should follow a pattern that is easy to remember yet difficult to guess by disaffected individuals.
Tips on how to choose a strong password:

  • Your password should be at least 8 characters long.
  • Use a combination of letters and at least one number
  • Be creative. Use the first letter of each word of a memorable sentence or phrase, then make it even tougher by changing some of the letters to numbers (e.g. use a "3" to replace an "e").
  • Try a mix of your pet's name, your favourite numbers, the street you grew up on or other combinations.

Precautions:

  • Never use your name, birthday, driver's license or passport number.
  • Commit your password to memory and don't store it on your computer or in your mobile phone.
  • Change your password often.
  • If a website or browser asks to remember your credentials, unclick that option and take the time to re-enter your password each time.
  • Clear your browsing history or cache after banking online.
  • Don't repeat numbers (5555) and letters (bbbb). Don't use simple sequences (abcdefg or 56789) or letters that appear in a row on your keyboard (qwerty).
  • Don't use the same password everywhere. Cybercriminals hack passwords and user names from ill-secured websites and use them to access highly-secured websites, including financial websites.

Change your security image
A security image is a means to add an extra level of security to your banking session. Don't hesitate to change it often, especially if you suspect that someone else knows your security image.
Clicking an image circumvents keyloggers that can record your key strokes.
Commit your new image to memory because it will be active on your next LBCDirect session!

Change your security questions
A security question is a means to confirm that you are the account holder.
Ideally, the question and answer should be relevant only to you. The idea is to associate two elements, not necessarily an answer to a formal question.

For example:
Question: two times two. / Answer: date squares
Create three questions and answers known only by you. Your questions and answers must contain between 6 and 60 characters each. Please note that your questions/answers are case sensitive and that the system will also memorize spaces.

Tips:

  • Choose questions and answers that you are sure to remember.
  • Don't disclose them to anyone.
  • The answer should be precise enough to be impossible to guess.
  • Avoid sensitive personal information (social insurance number) or information easily found on social networks (Facebook Twitter, etc.).

Commit your security questions to memory because they will be active on your next LBCDirect session!
However, the system will give you the opportunity to save your answers. Why?
Firstly because it protects you against keyloggers which could record your keystrokes. Security questions will only popup when you login from a computer that does not have a cookie from a previous visit or when the existing cookie has expired.
Secondly because it makes your life easier by skipping an authentication step.

Communication preferences
Choose how you want the Bank to communicate with you depending on the type of document to send.

Statements and administrative communications
You can choose to receive your statements electronically via Canada Post’s epostTM service or by mail.
By default, statements and administrative communications are sent by mail.
Please note that charges apply to paper statement while the epostTM service is free of charge.
