Text alerts

How to manage your text alerts.

Text alerts explained

  • We can send text alerts about your accounts to your mobile phone. This gives you another way of keeping track of your finances. 
  • You will be automatically enrolled into this service if we have your up-to-date mobile number. Learn how to update your number.
  • Overdraft alerts can help you manage your finances and avoid charges. The alerts will remind you when you need to pay cleared funds into your current account. This can help you avoid going into an unarranged overdraft. 


    Arranged overdrafts

    To help you minimise charges we’ll let you know by text when:

    • You're about to use or you've started using your arranged overdraft.
    • We’ve started to charge you for using an arranged overdraft. 

    To stop alerts, text STOPA to 61112 or to opt back in, text STARTA to the same number. 

    Unarranged overdrafts

    To help you manage your balance we’ll let you know by text when:

    • You need to pay money into the account to cover a standing order.
    • We refuse a payment.
    • You’re about to use or have started using an unarranged overdraft.

    To stop these alerts, text STOPU to 61112 or to opt back in, text STARTU to the same number.

    Opting in and out of these alerts is free from a UK mobile number. You can stop all overdraft alerts by texting STOP to 61112 or to opt back in, text START to the same number. Stopping alerts may mean you incur avoidable costs. Your preference to opt in or out of alerts will be applied to all your accounts.

    If you have a Youth / Islamic / Basic account, we will only send you unarranged overdraft alerts.

    We will also send you text alerts when:

    • When we are asked to change your phone number
    • When you set up a new person or company to receive a payment or
    • When we need to speak to you before we make a payment.
    • When we suspect any fraud related activity

    You cannot stop these alerts.

    You can receive mobile alerts abroad, but please check with your service provider for any charges you may incur. If you have an international number registered with us, you may be charged when using the opt-out service.

    If you opt-out you may miss important messages about your account so make sure you keep track of your balance and regularly check your statements through Mobile, Internet or Telephone Banking.

    If you use our Mobile Banking app, then you can select to receive push notifications when your balance after pending falls between £0 and £50. These can be turned on or off in the app through your notifications settings and will be applied to all your current accounts.

  • Our text alerts can help you manage your savings accounts. We’ll send text messages to your mobile phone once we have your up-to-date contact number. You can opt out of this service if you don’t want to receive these alerts. To do so, please send us a text message.
