Towne-Biz Mobile

Who can use Towne Personal/Biz mobile banking?

Anyone who is already enrolled in Towne-Personal/Biz Online Banking can use mobile banking. If you have not yet signed up for Towne-Personal/Biz, please enroll first. Once you are enrolled in Online Banking, you may use our mobile app, mobile website or text banking.

How can I use Towne Personal/Biz Mobile Banking?

We are pleased to offer three ways you can access your accounts or retrieve account information from your mobile phone: Mobile App, Mobile Web and Mobile Text.

  1. Mobile Apps for iPhone® and Android offer a more robust and custom experience for your mobile phone including Touch ID® / Fingerprint LoginTM, Mobile Check Deposit and a GPS Office and ATM locator. If you have an iPhone or an Android, we designed the Mobile App just for you. To download the App visit the App Store or Google Play.
  2. If you have access to the internet on your mobile device, you can view balances, pay bills and more. Log into online banking through our login page.
  3. Mobile Text provides you with a quick way to receive account balances on the go. If your mobile device can send and receive text messages, then you can take advantage of mobile text. To get started, simply register your device and use the available commands. Prior to registration, make sure you have access to the phone number(s) or email address to receive a one-time verification code.
What is the difference between the mobile app and using mobile banking through my device's browser?

The mobile app has additional features and is downloaded through the Google Play store or Apple’s App store. Several features on the TowneBank Mobile Banking app for Towne-Personal/Biz users such as TouchID®/Fingerprint LoginTM and mobile check deposit are not available in mobile browser banking and are only available on the app.

Mobile browser banking is accessed by opening the browser (typically Chrome, Safari, etc.), navigating to, and logging in. At that point, you will have access to a mobile-specific version of the online banking services that you use (such as Towne-Personal).

What are all of the Mobile text commands?

The commands are as follows: 

bal - Balances in your checking and savings accounts.
cmd - List of valid commands.
help - Support information.
hist - Last three transactions in your checking and savings accounts.
stop - Unregister your device.

Is there a fee to use mobile banking?
TowneBank does not charge a fee to use any of our mobile banking options, however, message and data rates may apply. Check with your wireless carrier for internet service rates and plans available for your mobile device.
Is mobile banking secure?
Yes. Each mobile session is protected by the same end-to-end 128 bit, SSL encryption and extra login security as your online banking sessions. No sensitive information is stored on your phone and all account numbers are masked.
How does TouchID® / Fingerprint LoginTM work?
This feature allows you to use your fingerprint to log in securely instead of entering your username and password. By enabling TouchID®/Fingerprint LoginTM, every person with an enrolled fingerprint on your device will have access to your account. Review the enrolled fingerprints to make sure that each person is authorized to access the personal and financial information available in this app. Fingerprints are only stored on your device. TowneBank does not have access to your fingerprint.
How do I set up TouchID® or Fingerprint LoginTM on my device?
Open the app and log in using your username and password. Select ‘Settings’ and choose ‘Touch ID’ or 'Fingerprint ID'. To enable the feature, move the switch until it turns green or says 'on'.
How do I set up Fingerprint LoginTM on my Android device?
Open the app and log in using your username and password. On an Android select ‘Settings’ from the menu. Then, select ‘Fingerprint ID’ and switch the option from ‘Off’ to ‘On’. You will then be prompted to verify your thumbprint.
What if I set up TouchID® / Fingerprint LoginTM, but decide I don't want to use it anymore?
If you decide to remove this authentication feature from your app settings, simply log into the TowneBank Mobile Banking app and select ‘Settings to access this feature and switch the option from ‘On’ to ‘Off’.
Why am I prompted for a code upon login?

Your security is very important to us. We use enhanced multi-factor authentication to provide an additional layer of security to make it more difficult for fraudsters to access your accounts.

This enhanced protection uses both your password and a one-time verification code that you receive outside of online banking through text or voice phone call to access your account. Even if an attacker managed to steal your password he or she would be unable to access your account without your registered device or a one-time verification code sent only to your pre-determined phone number or email address.
I’ve lost my mobile device. What should I do?

If you added your mobile phone number to your online banking settings to receive one time passcodes you should remove it until you receive a replacement. To do this, simply login to Towne-Personal, go to ‘My Settings’ and then select ‘Update Security Options’ from the left hand menu. Delete the phone number for your mobile device until you obtain a new one. 

If you have previously registered this device for text banking it is recommended that you deactivate it. To do this, visit the text registration site. You will enter your username and password and you will be prompted to receive a one-time verification code. Once you are logged in simply click on ‘Unregister Device’.

How can I set my mobile device to remember my user-name?
On the login page there is a toggle button next to ‘Save Username’. To save your username, switch the ‘Save Username’ from ‘Red’ to ‘Green' or from ‘Off’ to ‘On’.
How can I update my phone number and/or email address associated with my online banking profile?
You can update this information by logging into your account on a desktop computer and once you are logged in, select My Settings in the upper right hand corner. Then, update the desired information and select Save.
Can I use the Reset Password feature if I've been locked out due to too many invalid login attempts?
No, you cannot use this feature if you have been locked out due to too many invalid login attempts. If you are locked out, please contact eChannel support at 844-638-6714, Monday-Friday, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
Can I pay an eBill?
Yes, you can but the ability to view eBills is temporarily unavailable on the mobile banking app, although you may continue to make payments to these billers within the app. In order to continue viewing eBills on your mobile device, open your mobile browser and navigate to From there, log into Towne-Personal or Towne-Biz and select ‘Bill Pay’ and then ‘Due Bills’.
How can I view 'Pending Payments' in Bill Pay?

The ability to view 'Pending Payments' is temporarily unavailable on the mobile banking app. In order to continue viewing Pending Payments on your mobile device, open your mobile browser and navigate to From there, log into Towne-Personal or Towne-Biz and select ‘Bill Pay’ and then ‘Pending Payments'.

When adding a new Bill Pay Payee, why am I sometimes asked for only my account number while other times I'm asked for the Payee's mailing address?
Our Bill Pay system has a very large database of popular Bill Pay Payees. If you enter a payee that is housed in this database, the mailing address is already known. However, if the payee is not in the database, you will need to provide additional contact information for that payee.
Can I schedule a bill payment to a payee as soon as I add it?
Yes, as soon as you complete the information for a payee you can schedule a bill payment.
Who is eligible to use Mobile Check Deposit?

Mobile check deposit1 is available to TowneBank members who are currently enrolled in Towne-Personal/Biz online banking and have an account in good standing. You must have the most current version of the TowneBank mobile banking app downloaded to your device.

Are there limits to how much I can deposit?
Yes, depending on how long you’ve been a member and the extent of your relationship with the bank. If you need to make a deposit that exceeds your current mobile deposit allowance, contact your hometown banker to see if you are eligible for extended limits. Or stop by one of our convenient ATM or office locations to make a deposit.
What types of checks can I deposit?
You can deposit checks written to you that originate from a U.S. Bank. We are unable to accept savings bonds, traveler's checks, counter checks, or photocopies of checks.
Will my deposit be available immediately?
Deposits made prior to 6:00 p.m. should be generally available the next business day. All deposits are subject to holds and verification.
How will I know if there is a problem with my check deposit after I submit it?
You will receive email notifications to keep you up to date on the status of your deposit. Email notifications will be sent to the email address we have on file associated with your online account access.
What do I do with my paper checks after I have made my deposit?
We recommend that you store your paper check in a secure location for at least 30 days after you have made your deposit. Once your deposit has been accepted take care in destroying the check so that account numbers, routing information, and signatures cannot be read.

Your mobile carrier's web access and text messaging charges may apply.
