If you selected the mobile browsing option during activation, you can access some of the more powerful banking features such as transferring funds from your mobile browser. Once enrolled, you will receive a text message containing a private link to log in. This link is unique to your account so remember to bookmark it to use it each time you log in from your mobile device. Enter your password on the login page; your mobile password is the same as your online banking password.
Once logged on, click the “View Accounts” icon to display balance information for each of your accounts. Select an account to view details such as transaction history. To return to the main screen select “Menu” in the top left corner.
Transferring funds is just as easy as viewing account details.

On the next screen, view the transfer information you entered and select “Yes” to confirm the transfer. Once you confirm the information you entered is correct, you will see a “Transfer Complete” screen. That’s all there is to it, you’ve just transferred money between two accounts.
