Alerts & Text Banking


Let us watch your account balance and activity for you with Coast Mobile Banking alerts via text or email. You choose which alerts you’d like to receive, such as when your account balance is low, when your Personal Access Code has been changed, or when you need to feed your cat. Ok, you’ll have to remember that last one on your own.

  • Find out when your balance is low
  • Find out when withdrawals and deposits are made
  • Set up login and bill payee alerts to protect against potential fraud on your account
  • If you're a business owner using Coast Online Banking for Small Business, you can also get an alert for pending transactions awaiting your approval.
