Secure Alerts

 Secure Alerts is a new feature that allows even more control over your banking. It allows for the same alerts we offered before and more! 

*Please note, our old alert system will be deactivated. Be sure to activate secure alerts so that you can continue to get the notifications that matter most to you. Until our old system is deleted, you may receive duplicate alerts. Thank you for your patience as we give everyone time to move over to the new and improved system.

You can enable alerts from your mobile device or desktop!

Your Options are:

App Notifications - This is a notification through your Forreston State Bank mobile app. 

Secure Inbox - This is the inbox within your online banking account. (This is automatically setup up for you, so you will not see it in the contact Options, but it will be an option when you set up your alerts.)

Email - Any personal or business email account that you would like notifications sent to.

Text Message - Enter the phone number you choose to receive notifications via text message.  

* Please note, you will have the flexibility to select one or as many contact options as you would like for each alert you set up.

  • After the contact information is entered, click save.  You will then need to hit the "Send Activation Code" to finalize the set up process for email and text. 
  • An activation code will be sent to your preferred method of contact and you will have 90 minutes to enter that information and confirm set up. 
  • Enter the code sent to you and click “Activate”.  It will then show “Activated” in green. 

You also have the option to set up “Do Not Disturb” if there are certain times you prefer not to receive alerts. This is individually setup for each contact method.
