  • What can I do to protect my personal information while banking from my phone?

    When using Mobile Banking, there are things you can do to protect your accounts and sensitive information.

    • Never give out your Online Banking password
    • Memorize you username and password. Never store it on your mobile phone or write it down on a piece of paper that you carry with you.
    • Choose passwords that would not be easy for others to guess. This includes information that could be found on social sites or public information, such as your name or a family member name, phone number, birthday or pet name.
    • Establish a security code (sometimes called a passcode) to access your mobile phone. This locks your phone after it's been idle for a while and won't allow anyone to access it who doesn't have the code.
  • What information is stored on my phone?

    Ally doesn't store any personal or account information on your phone. Never email your personal information to anyone, and make sure you don't keep your username, password or account information in the notepad or address book of your phone.

  • Can I safely recycle or dispose of my phone if it has the Mobile Banking app on it?

    Although Ally doesn't store any personal or account information on your phone, we recommend you uninstall the Mobile Banking app before recycling or disposing of your phone.

  • How do I view or make changes to a pending or scheduled transfer?

    Once you log in to online banking:

    1. Go to the Main Menu  at the top right of the page.
    2. Select Transfer Funds.
    3. Select Activity from the navigation on the left.
    4. Review, edit or cancel your scheduled transfers.

    Transfers between your Ally Bank accounts are immediate, so they can’t be canceled or changed.
