Alert Banking

Alert banking is a free service offered by The First National Bank of McHenry that allows you to actively and instantly monitor your account. With alert banking, you tell us the events for which you wish to be notified about, and we will deliver you transaction information to your mobile phone or email as soon as it happens. With identity theft and data security breaches becoming commonplace, alert banking is the perfect tool to let you know about any activity taking place with your account, as it happens.  Alert banking can also be used to be notified of payroll direct deposits that are usually posted during non-banking hours. Setting up alerts are easily done by following the 5 steps below.  

Step 1

To begin setting up alerts on your First National Bank of McHenry accounts, login to your Personal Online Banking Account with your Access ID and Password.  If you don't have an Access ID and Password, you can get one here by submitting an online enrollment form.  Once you've reached the account landing page, you will see a prompt to choose the account that wish you to set up alerts for.
