Four Reasons to Use Mobile Banking

by Hostetler, Michael

Having control over your finances means having the most up to date information on your account so you can make the best financial decisions. One of the best ways to do this is by using a mobile banking application from your Indianapolis bank or credit union. Here are four reasons to make the leap to banking through your mobile device.

It's free.

Most banks and credit unions do not charge their consumers to download and use their mobile apps. Some institutions may require that you already utilize online banking before using the mobile app.

It's secure.

Mobile banking applications are just as secure as online banking through your institution. Mobile apps require passwords and many offer dual factor authentication that makes it difficult for someone other than the authorized user to access your bank account.

It's always available.

A mobile banking app allows you to access your account wherever you are. This means that you don't have to rely on being on a PC at your home or office or near a bank branch or ATM to find out what your balance is or make a transfer between accounts. If you want to check your account balance, all you have to do is pull out your smartphone.

It saves you money.

Simply managing your bank account and your personal finances brings with it small costs that can add up over time. The cost of gas to drive to a branch, stamps to pay bills, and account fees can all add up over the course of a year. A mobile banking application can help you find branch locations near your home or office, check your account balance, and even pay your bills.
