  • How do I log on the first time if I am an advisor or third party?

    Since this is the first time you are logging on, you are required to sign on through the Private computer process as outlined in the "Welcome to Millennium Trust Online" email.

  • What is the difference between a 'private' and 'public' computer?

    The first step in the Log On process is to select which type of computer you are using to access your account. If this is the first time you are logging on, you must select "Private Computer".

    Private/Trusted — If you are accessing your account from home or work, you may select this option to register your computer. This allows you to log on each time using only your User name and Password.

    Public/Shared — Allows you to view your account from a computer at a hotel, library or cafe without having to register the computer. However, you must verify a security image, phrase and question to log on to your account. In order to use the Public Computer option, you need to set up your public profile. You can set up your profile by logging on through a private computer, go to "My Account", select Edit and update your public profile.
