Frequently Asked Questions - Mobile
It’s Online Banking specifically designed in an easy-to-view format for your mobile phone.
Mobile Banking gives you access to the most popular Online Banking features. However, for services such as viewing e-statements or setting up e-alerts, you’ll still need to access Online Banking.
Yes! Mobile Banking has the same security features as regular Online Banking. All data between Credit Union of Colorado and our members is 128-bit SSL-encrypted. No data is stored on your phone and your Online Banking session automatically times out after a 10-minute period of inactivity. Still, it’s smart never to share your account number or password with anyone.
If you are an iPhone user, we recommend that you not install items on your iPhone that are not approved by Apple, and that you not remove restrictions on your iPhone imposed by Apple. This helps keep your device secure and prevents it from being targeted by malware.
If you follow this advice, using your iPhone for Mobile Banking or any other service will always remain secure.
If you have installed software on your iPhone that has not been approved by Apple, you can use iTunes to restore the device to Apple’s factory firmware. Changing passwords alone will not protect you from malware.
Note: Like any computer, your web-enabled cell phone or smartphone is susceptible to viruses, malicious sites and applications. Be sure to use the same caution when opening emails, clicking on links, and surfing the web via your phone, as you do with your computer.
This depends on which Mobile Banking application you use. If you use the web browser-based version, account information will not be stored on your device. If you use a downloadable application such as the iPhone app or MFM, account balance information is stored on the device. Both applications, however, are secured by your username and password.
All data transmitted during Online Banking is protected by 128-bit SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption technology—one of the highest levels of security for protecting confidential data transmission. The encryption process converts all transmitted information into strings of unrecognizable data, so even if the data transmission is intercepted and recorded, no sensitive information can be retrieved.
