Bank of America's website features an online verification system called SiteKey that provides users with identity theft protection when signing on to the online banking system. SiteKey verifies your identity every time you log on to the online banking system to access your account from a new computer. In addition, SiteKey offers a unique image and phrase that is displayed at logon when you enter your password helping to prevent you from entering your information on a fraudulent look-alike site.
