Mobile banking has been growing exponentially over the last few years. In 2016, the number of mobile banking users is expected to reach 111 million, a growth of 54 million users since 2011! Most banks have now added a mobile banking app to their list of services and tools available to their customers. Convenience, ease of access and security are among the top benefits of mobile banking, but we’ve made a list of four more reasons you should start using mobile banking!
Stay in Control of Your Finances
When you have access to your accounts and balances from the convenience of your cell phone, you’re able to better stay on top of your finances. Checking your balance or moving funds from one account to another is as easy as 1-2-3 with mobile banking.
Some people are a little resistant to mobile banking because they are concerned about the application’s security. But mobile banking is as secure as accessing your account information online thanks to passwords, encryptions and other types of security methods.
Some experts even believe mobile banking can help protect you against identity theft. With the ease of being able to monitor your account from your cell phone, you
can spot suspicious purchases and transactions sooner.
View account balances and history, transfer funds, make deposits and pay bills all from your phone. Mobile banking apps essentially turn your phone into your local bank, and provide you with the versatility to do the majority of your banking.
Have you ever needed to deposit a check quickly with no time to run to an ATM or your local banking location? With mobile banking and mobile deposits, you can deposit your check from the convenience of your home, any time of day, and any day of the week.
