What is Online Banking & how does it work?

Online Banking refers to using your desktop computer to access your bank account. Using a mobile device, such as a tablet or phone with an installed mobile app is called Mobile Banking.

Both pathways provide you with similar features and functions to manage your money, so it’s just a matter of which access method is most convenient for you at any given time. However, Online Banking may feature a wider array of options.
Online Banking allows Credit Union of Southern California (CU SoCal) Members to access different banking services and products through their desktop computer's web browser, which for many individuals, completely removes the need to visit their local branch.

How to set up Online Banking

Setting up Online Banking is easy. To set up Online Banking your first step is to register. This allows you to create a username and password that provides access to both Online and Mobile Banking. Once you have your username and password, you can log into Online Banking on our website, or use our Mobile App to access your accounts. You can also register for the first time on our Mobile App, and your credentials will also work for Online Banking access.

Is Online Banking safe?

Yes, generally, Online Banking is a safe and secure way to access your accounts. All financial institutions have security software and practices that encrypt account holders’ personal information.
However, one of the ways a security breach can happen is when an account holder logs into their account from an unsecured network, such as in a coffee shop or airport. Whenever possible avoid doing your personal banking in public places. To keep your account secure, never give your personal account information or password to anyone you do not know and completely trust.
