Understanding Mobile Banking
If you have a smartphone or tablet, you can likely utilize mobile banking. Mobile banking provides access to critical account information — including your balances — from virtually any location. Additionally, you can handle certain transactions, such as transferring funds between accounts and paying bills through mobile banking. With some mobile banking apps, you can even deposit checks by using your phone’s camera.
To see if your bank or credit union has a mobile app, contact the financial institution or search through the app store on your tablet or phone. If you come across an app, make sure it matches your bank or credit union’s brand by examining its logo, color choices and contact information, because some credit unions and banks are similar in name.
