What is text banking?
Text banking allows you to access your bank or credit union account from your mobile phone — anytime, anywhere.
Some banks and credit unions offer text banking options to account holders. Users typically set up text banking by logging into their account, and setting it up online. Afterwards, they will text a short command to an established number, and receive alerts and information through text messages. This includes current account balances and the last five transactions of the account.
