Know About Changes to Your Account
One of the most common mobile alerts that banks offer warn you when there are any changes to your account. For instance, you'll get an instant alert whenever there is a change to your password or account information, like address, phone number or email address. Some banks send alerts when there have been checks ordered on your account, or a biller has been added to your online bill pay account.
Hopefully, you are the one who has initiated the changes, but the point of these alerts is to notify you in case these are unauthorized changes from someone who has hacked your account. If you are warned early enough and contact your bank as soon as possible, you can help prevent fraudsters from wreaking havoc on your finances.
