Mobile Web & App FAQs

  • What's the difference between Ally Mobile Web and the Ally Mobile Banking app?

    Both are free from Ally and both offer easy access to your accounts on the go. You must have a supported Apple® or AndroidTM or Windows® Phone 8 device to download the app, while m.allybank.com can be accessed by most mobile devices. Additionally, the app uses your device's built-in features to provide a more customized experience.

    Ally eCheck Deposit℠ is exclusive to the Ally Mobile Banking apps, and is not a feature of Ally Mobile Web. Popmoney® is exclusive to the Ally Mobile Banking iPhone® and Android℠ apps, and is not available for Ally Mobile Web or the Windows Phone app.

  • 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 transfer?

    It’s easy to manage your transfers:

    • Log in to your account
    • Go to "I want to" on the right-hand side of the page
    • Choose the Ally accounts or Ally and non-Ally accounts link under View pending transfers
