Secure Alerts

Introducing Secure Alerts

Secure Alerts from Bank 1st is a notification tool that lets you instantly* know what is happening with your accounts. This product is free for our customers and is a great monitoring tool!

Choose from dozens of alerts to notify you of:

  • Account Balances - Know when your account balance goes below or above a predetermined dollar amount
  • Transaction Activity*- Know when debit card transactions, ATM withdrawals, automatic transfers, or checks of a predetermined dollar threshold post to your deposit accounts
  • Loan Activity - Know when payments or advances post to your loans
  • Security - Know when your online banking password has been changed or your login has been locked out

*Transaction activity may not always be instant, e.g., notifications will not occur immediately after a debit card purchase is made but rather when the bank posts transactions to your account.

Secure Alerts can be delivered to you through several delivery channels. Delivery options include:

  • Text Messages (message and date rates may apply) 
  • Email
  • Mobile Banking Notifications
  • Online Banking Secure Inbox
