Sign up for security and account alerts
You can easily monitor activities on your account by setting up email notifications that will inform you if a specific event occurs on your account or within the Online and Mobile Banking systems. In order to receive these alerts, you must enroll and provide an email address within either Online or Mobile Banking.
Set-up is Easy
To set up security and account alerts, log into Online or Mobile Banking. Then, click on the gear symbol ‘Tools’ in the top, right-hand corner.
‘Alerts’ are under the first section ‘Personalize’ in the drop-down menu. After you click on Alerts, please set up how you would like to be notified by entering your preferred email address.
Once you enroll with your email address, the following events within ‘Security Alerts’ will be sent to you by default:
- Email is changed
- Username or password is changed
- Profile information is changed
You can go farther in securing your account by setting up alerts to notify you when a bill payment or transfer has been made or if any of your account settings have been changed.
Online and Mobile Banking also allow you to set up ‘Account Alerts’ for events that happen on the account level, such as your checking, savings, or credit card. You can set up alerts to be sent when your balance dips below a specified dollar amount or if a withdraw or deposit is made over a specified dollar amount.
While identity theft is scary and no fun to talk about, it is an unfortunate reality. With the creation of these alerts, you are helping mitigate the risk of ID theft and maintain the security of your account.
