For over two years Hibernia Bank has been a .BANK institution. More and more banks are now making the switch. A bank must be verified and authenticated by fTLD to register as a .BANK. This means that hackers and bad actors cannot get a .BANK domain name to create a lookalike Hibernia Bank website. .BANK offers the bank and our customers an additional layer of protection by allowing you to confirm that emails and websites of ours are real.
For more information on .BANK and the security that it offers you take a look this helpful PDF on .BANK domains.
For your security we will never ask for your account information electronically. Should you ever have any questions or concerns please contact us by phone at (504) 522-3203.
Customers are advised to never give out confidential financial information in response to an unsolicited e-mail. Remember, Hibernia Bank does not request confidential, personal or secure log-in information via e-mail.
- Customers should be cautious about e-mailing personal or financial information since e-mail IS NOT a secure communication channel.
- Be wary of anyone calling you to ask for bank account or personal information over the phone. Hibernia Bank will never call you to ask for confidential information.

Beware of Phone, Mail and Email Scams
Scammers don’t just send spam. They can also call you or send mail that looks official or threatening. You should never respond to phone calls, emails or mail that requires or demands sensitive information or payment without checking its source.

E-Banking Online E-Mail Communications
Electronic messages sent and received via the “Contact Us” option in E-Banking are secure (i.e., once Hibernia has accepted your Access ID and Password and your browser shows that a secure connection has been established). Communications sent over the public Internet, or through your own e-mail software, is not necessarily secure. Therefore, we will not send, and we strongly suggest that you do not send, any confidential account information unless using the “Contact Us” option within the E-Banking System. You agree that we may take a reasonable time to act on any e-mail. Correspondence that requires expeditious handling – for example, if you need to report an unauthorized transaction from one of your accounts, or if you need to immediately stop payment on a check you have issued, should be made by calling Hibernia at (504) 522-3203. You agree that Hibernia may send you electronic messages about other products or services that we offer.
You agree that Hibernia is not responsible for any electronic virus that you may encounter while on the Internet using E-Banking. We encourage you to routinely scan your computer and disks using any reliable virus protection product to detect and remove any viruses found. Undetected or un-repaired, a virus may corrupt and destroy your programs, files, and hardware.
