Security Tip – Why you should use Online Banking alerts

You’ve heard you should be monitoring activity on your bank accounts – but you also know you should be flossing your teeth and drinking more water. But like many things you are “supposed” to do, it’s easy for them to drop to the bottom of a very long list.

Here’s the good news – by signing up to receive Alerts through Online Banking, you can some help. With Alerts, you can receive notices automatically when a direct deposit or other payment is received, if your balance falls below a certain level, or every time your debit card is used (just to name a few options – login to Online Banking for a full list of available alerts). You can also choose to receive a notice each day with your current balances.

Signing up for Alerts is easy:

1. Login to Online Banking through our website or using our mobile app.
2. Select Manage My Alerts.
3. Select the type of alert you want, as well as how you want to receive it, by text, by email or both.

By the way – For security purposes, there are some Alerts we will send to you automatically using the phone number or email you have provided. These Alerts include any changes to your User ID, password, security information, mailing address or email address.

Not using Online Banking yet? You can get started in just a few clicks.
