Only the phones that you personally enroll in the service can access your accounts. No confidential information is ever stored on your phone. If your phone is lost or stolen, the service can be immediately disabled either by going online to the Mobile Banking enrollment website or calling your credit union.

Q. Do I need a text message or data plan?
Yes, a text messaging and/or data plan is needed, as “pay-as-you-go” data usage can become expensive without them. Check with your wireless carrier for more information.

Q. I enrolled my phone number but did not receive a text message. What should I do?
You should receive a text message within a few minutes after enrolling. But sometimes mobile carriers experience delays that slow down text message delivery. While waiting, make sure your phone has a wireless signal and is enabled for text messaging. In addition, be sure you entered the correct phone number on the enrollment site.
Q. I received an activation code but never used it. What do I do now?
Activation codes expire after 24 hours. If you need a new one, return to the Mobile Banking enrollment site, click on ‘Manage Devices’, and request a new activation code for the phone on the Mobile Banking Center screen.
Q. What happens if I get a new phone or change phone numbers?
If you get a new phone or change phone numbers, return to the Mobile Banking enrollment site on your PC and update your device on the Mobile Banking Center screen. You will actually be removing your phone and re-enrolling your new phone or phone number information.
Q. I activated Mobile Banking on my phone's browser. Why am I being asked to activate again?
At the time of activation, a "cookie" is stored on your phone's browser which allows the Mobile Banking system to remember that you activated. Some phones may require you to enable cookies or periodically erase them, requiring reactivation. If you are experiencing this issue, check your phone settings to ensure that cookies are enabled. To re-activate your phone, text ‘R’ to CUACCT to receive a new activation code or visit the enrollment site.
Q. What if my device is lost or stolen?
If you are concerned about misuse of your phone, contact your mobile service provider immediately to stop all wireless service. Additionally, re-visit the Mobile Banking enrollment site and disable or remove your phone.
Q. I keep receiving text message responses stating that an unknown command was received. Am I doing something wrong?
If you receive this text messaging response, you could be sending an invalid command, or you have an auto-signature turned on for text messaging. Send C to shortcode 282228 for a list of valid commands. Turn off auto-signatures or delete the signature from commands sent to 282228. Signatures send additional text in the message which can result in an ‘unknown command’ response.
