A guide to mobile banking

Published on

Mobile Banking can be a convenient way to access your accounts and services on the go. In fact, Webster customers are currently using Mobile Banking almost twice as often as Online Banking. Here are some of the most important benefits:

Security

Mobile Banking is secure and safe. Webster protects your Mobile Banking account information with the same level of security as your Online Banking account. Plus, there is an added level of protection with Mobile Banking because your phone can only be locked and unlocked by you. 

Check balances

Check your balances while you're on the go to see if you have enough funds for immediate purchases. 

Deposit checks

You can deposit checks to your Webster account anytime, anywhere through the Mobile Deposit feature. By using your phone's camera, you can securely capture your check's image, which is immediately sent to Webster. Then, we confirm the check image and deposit the funds to your account with the first $100 available same day if made on a business day prior to 5:00pm EST for withdrawals and transfers.

Transfer funds

Conveniently transfer money between your Webster account and accounts you may have at other banks, anytime you need to.

Pay bills

Schedule bill payments, set up a new payment, and make sure your important items get paid on time, anytime.

Find the nearest banking center and ATM

Search by address or use your phone’s GPS to locate banking centers and ATM's closest to you.

Get important notifications

Anytime your balance reaches a certain level - high or low - or a transaction is made, you'll immediately receive a notification. Learn more about our alerts.

App or Browser

Our mobile app is compatible with  iPhones, iPads, and Android smartphones and offers many convenient features. If you prefer not to download the app, you can still use your smartphone or tablet to access the expanded features of Online Banking. From your mobile browser, go to websteronline.com (bookmark it for even easier access) and you've basically replicated the app. Instructions on how to add a website bookmark to your home screen can be found here:
