How do I deposit a check through Mobile Banking?

Depositing checks using your SmartPhone is easy! Once you’ve installed Mobile Banking, login and click on the Deposits icon. Choose New Deposit then select the account you would like to deposit the check in to. Enter the amount of the check. You will then be instructed to take a picture of the front of the check and preview it. You will then be instructed to take a picture of the back of the check and preview it. If needed, you may retake either the front or back image. When you take the pictures, make sure to include all four corners of the check. Finally, confirm your deposit details and if correct, click Yes to deposit your check.

Be sure to endorse each check that you deposit as follows:

John Doe (your signature)
For First Utah Bank Mobile Deposit Only. Account # _________

Improper endorsement is the most common reason for mobile deposit rejection. Please be sure to endorse every check you deposit through Mobile Deposit with all of the information shown above.

You may make deposits anytime. If we receive and accept your deposit before 6:00 PM Mountain Time on a day that we are open, you will receive same-day credit. If we receive the deposit after 6:00 PM, don’t worry, you’ll receive credit the following business day.

You will not be able to see the deposit in your current day presentments, however, using the Mobile Banking App you may view deposit status by clicking View Deposit History in the Deposits section of the App.

Is Mobile Banking secure?

Yes. Mobile Banking employs industry best practices with regards to security. Customers are authenticated by username and password and 128-bit encryption is used within Mobile Banking. Mobile Banking is completely integrated with Internet Banking which means you can view and complete transactions using the same login process whether you are on your mobile device or personal computer. You can even switch back and forth, depending upon where you are and which service best suits your needs at the time.

If you choose to use the Downloadable App service, be aware that anytime you close the app you will be automatically logged out of your account(s). Additionally, if you leave the app open but inactive, you will be automatically logged out of your account(s) after 5 minutes. If you are using the browser-based service, you are automatically logged out after 10 minutes.

Is my personal or financial information stored on the phone used to access Mobile Banking?

No. Mobile Banking does not save any files with personal or financial information on your mobile device. That information stays strictly within online banking. Some phones have logo and branding files that are copied to the mobile device. Those files do not contain any personally identifiable information.

What if my phone is lost or stolen?

If your mobile device is lost or stolen, no one can access your account(s) without knowing your access credentials. To prevent unauthorized access to your account, you can deactivate your phone in Internet Banking. To deactivate your mobile device, login to Internet Banking and select Options. Under the section titled Mobile Banking Profile click on Manage Device(s).

Which mobile service carriers support Mobile Banking?

Mobile Banking works on all major mobile service carriers in the United States. Mobile Banking works with most prepaid plans, but we cannot guarantee that your carrier supports standard U.S. short codes. Certain carriers may block premium messages (text messages from short codes) by default. If you are having trouble activating Mobile Banking because you are not receiving the expected text messages required for activation, you may need to contact your carrier and request that premium messages be allowed on your account.

What is this link in the text message(s)? is the domain name that Mobile Banking resides on. It should be considered trusted and secure.

How do I get the app on my smartphone?

To access the Bank’s Downloadable App on your device, download it from the Google Play or iTunes App Store. After you download the TouchBanking application, you will be asked to enter an App Code to activate it. The App Code is GoMobile0815. You will also be asked to enter your Username, answer multifactor authentication questions, and enter a password. These credentials are the same ones that you use when you access Internet Banking. If you are not currently enrolled in Internet Banking, you may self-enroll by clicking here.

How do I access the website for Mobile Browser Banking?

When you activate the service for the first time, you will receive a text message containing the browser URL. Please be sure to save this as a favorite on your mobile device browser.
