Check Account Balances on the Go

Posted in Security, Financial Tips

Like many of you, we are thrilled that summer officially arrives this month! Opportunities to explore and take advantage of the great outdoors increase as the weather gets warmer. When you're on the go, it can be easy to lose track of your spending.

Take advantage of Bank First's Online and Mobile Banking with a quick, periodic review of your account balances and transactions. If you haven't yet activated account alerts, now is the perfect time!

From the goBank mobile app, tap the More tab to set your custom alerts:

  • Tap Account Alerts to set balance and transaction alerts such as credit or debits to your account.
  • The Security Alert function allows you to be notified when someone logs in to your online banking account.
  • Card Alerts can be set from the Alerts tab or from the Cards tab. Under Manage Card, set controls and alerts for your Bank First cards by location, transaction or merchant type, and even set spend limits on specific cards.
  • Under Manage Delivery, you can set and manage how you receive your alerts - either by phone or email.

Account Alerts are a great tool for fraud prevention. By monitoring your accounts, you can quickly spot and stop possible fraud or unauthorized activity.

You can also enroll in Alerts through the desktop version of Bank First Online Banking. Once logged in, click on Alerts on the top right of the home page.
