Is Mobile Banking Secure?
We are very concerned with the safety and privacy of your information and are committed to protecting your information. To ensure the security of your account information, a number of security features have been built into Mobile Banking products: 
  • Registration Process — The unique activation code required to verify your mobile phone number. This code associates your mobile phone number with your account. In addition to the security measure, this verification lets you know your mobile phone number was successfully entered into the system.
  • No Identifiable Information — No mobile banking text message returns any personally identifiable information, such as your full account number, PIN, email, or personal address. Your user ID and password will never be included or asked for in any of the text messages that you receive from or send to Mobile Money.

If your mobile phone number changes, you must log in to Mobile Banking and update that phone number on the "My Phones" tab of the Mobile Banking main menu.

If your mobile phone is lost or stolen, no one can access your account without knowing your unique user name and password. In the unfortunate event your mobile phone is either lost or stolen, report it immediately to your mobile carrier. Then you should immediately log on to Mobile Banking from your computer and delete that mobile phone number from the Mobile Banking main menu.
