Our newly upgraded Online Banking system comes with lots of excellent new features, including a few exclusive to our Mobile Banking App! To ensure you know how to use these features and feel comfortable navigating the updated system we have put together a series of blog posts to highlight these features and offer a few tips. The First Alliance Mobile Banking App is free to download from AppleTM and AndroidTM app stores. Plus, new users to Online Banking can enroll for the first time directly through the Mobile App!
TouchIDTM allows you to log into your account through the Mobile App with a touch of your finger! No password to type in. TouchIDTM is not only an important security feature enhancement, but also more convenient. Currently this is only supported for Apple devices.
Once logged in, press the “More” tab to enable Touch ID.
Mobile Check Deposit:
While this is not a new feature to our Mobile App since the upgrade in June there were a few back-end technical updates to make this feature function even more seamlessly. Also it is always worth pointing out that this is one awesome feature! If you are not familiar with Mobile Check Deposit, this allows you to deposit a check by taking a photo of it from inside the app. It’s quick and saves you time by skipping the line at the branch, and it’s free to do. Next time you receive a check, give Mobile Deposit a try! Once logged in, press the “Deposit” tab to get started.
If you are a Bill Pay user this feature will “wow” you! Similar to Mobile Deposit, you take a photo of your paper billing statement from any biller and it automatically adds the bill into your Bill Pay account as a bill to be paid, or if it’s a new biller, it will even add them to your list of Billers. Additionally, you can manually add new billers through the app now. If you’re not a Bill Pay user yet there is no time like the present to start using it, you will however need to login to your Online Banking account from a desktop computer to get enrolled.
While this feature isn’t new since the upgrade it is one of our favorite features and deserves a shout out. No need to take time to log in just to check your balance, now you can simply tap the instant balance button on the log in screen to see the current balances of your favorite accounts!
Once logged in, press the “More” tab to enable Instant Balance.
