  • Technology.  Simmons First Bank Anywhere utilizes the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to communicate with your computer.  SSL security protects data in three ways:

Authentication – Keeps another server from impersonating the Simmons First Bank Anywhere server.
Encryption – Scrambles the data while it is being transferred.

  • Automatic Sign Off.  If there is no activity on your Simmons First Bank Anywhere account for ten (10) consecutive minutes, the Simmons First Bank Anywhere server will automatically sign you off.
