What is Alabama Credit Union Text Banking?
Alabama Credit Union Text Banking gives you access to your accounts via text (SMS) messages on your phone. It’s a fast, easy way to look up account balances or recent account history by sending a text command to a shortcode.
What is the Albama Credit Union short code?
The Alabama Credit Union shortcode will be provided to you once you enroll in Text Banking. For ease of use, we recommend that you add this number to your phone’s address book or contacts and name it something that you will easily recognize, such as “ACU Text Banking.”
Can I use both Text Banking and Mobile Banking on my phone?
Yes, you can use both options from the same phone. To do so you will need to activate each option on your phone prior to use. We recommend that you activate both Text Banking and Mobile Banking when you enroll, even if you aren’t sure that you will want to use both. By activating both at the time of your enrollment, you’ll eliminate the need to make changes later.
Is Text Banking supported on my phone?
Alabama Credit Union Text Banking will work on any text message (SMS) capable phone from one of our supported carriers. Please remember that there may be an extra charge to send or receive text messages.
Will I receive unsolicited text messages?
