3 reasons to use your credit union’s mobile banking app

In the late 90s you probably had a computer that was “so cool”. You could log onto “the net” with that thing in less than a minute. Now it’s 2022 and you’ve got a computer/phone/stereo/word processor/etc. the size of your hand that you take with you everywhere you go (even the bathroom, don’t deny it). Oh, and that Apple or Android device is WAAAY more powerful than that computer was in 1998. There are tons of apps available for any smart device you may own, and one app that is a must-have is definitely your credit union’s mobile app. If you’re not savvy with a mobile banking app yet, here are three reasons you should be…

It’s in your pocket: Everywhere you go, your smartphone is more than likely in your hand or in your pocket/purse. Your bank is 10 minutes away, and your laptop is in the other room with a dead battery. Does that sound right? Well, if you need a quick look at your accounts, look no further than your credit union’s mobile banking app. It’s pretty much always within arm’s reach and available to you whenever you need it.

It’s easy to login: If you’re an Apple user, logging into your mobile banking app couldn’t possibly be any easier. Even if your iPhone is “super old”, you can login with the touch of your finger. If you’ve got the latest Apple tech, thanks to Face ID, all you have to do is look at the screen. I don’t know much about Android tech these days (I did have the original Motorola Droid), but I can’t imagine it’s too far behind.

It’s super easy: I’m sure you could come up with a few reasons to travel inside your local CU branch, but mobile banking has definitely made one (formerly huge) reason obsolete. Depositing checks has never been easier than it is with mobile banking. Simply type in an amount, select which account you’d like it to go into, and then take a photo of both sides of the check. Boom. Done. It’s that simple.
