If you’re not using the FREE alerts feature of Merchants Bank Online Banking, you’re missing out on tools that could protect you from identity theft and fraud.

To set up automatic alerts, sign in to your Online Banking account and click the Other Services tab. From here, select the type of alert you’d like to enable and follow the steps to configure. Alerts can be sent to an email address, via text message or both…it’s up to you!

Here’s the list of the top three alerts our Electronic Banking Specialists recommend all customers put in place.

My Profile Changed – Get an alert if there are any changes to your Merchants Bank Online Banking profile. For example, a change to the email address associated with your account. This alert may help you detect if someone else has accessed your account and is trying to make changes to your profile.

Internet Banking Login Error – Get an alert if your password is entered incorrectly when attempting to log in to Online Banking. This alert may help you detect if someone else is trying to access your Online Banking account.

Balance Alerts – Get an alert based on balances above or below a certain dollar amount. Simply select the account you’d like an alert for, then choose an option from the drop down and type in an amount. This alert may help you detect large withdrawals or purchases you did not initiate.
