HONOLULU — Hawaii State Federal Credit Union (Hawaii State FCU) announced the unveiling of the state’s first banking technology center and the launch of its newest mobile app, giving members access to secure, convenient online banking right at their fingertips. The organization recently installed mobile Technology Centers at its main and Pearlridge branches, equipped with various hand-held mobile devices as well as employees trained to teach members about the latest mobile and online banking technology available to them.
Members can learn about the newest addition to the organization’s free mobile app suite, the CardLock App, available from the App Store and Google Play. CardLock provides greater security for credit card accounts by allowing users to set spending threshold limits and turn card access on or off. Members can also set up transaction and fraud alerts for the account, providing them real-time notifications of credit card activity to potentially stop fraud in its tracks.
Also included in the mobile app suite are the Hawaii State FCU Mobile App for daily online banking, with access to account history, bill pay, mobile check deposit and one-time transfers; MobiMoney App, a third-party application that allows users to control their debit card purchases and set up fraud alerts; and the Hawaii State FCU Credit Card App, to manage transactions and make payments to accounts. More than 10,000 app downloads have been made to date.
“Convenient account access and enhanced security features such as CardLock provide our members with peace of mind protection and puts security controls in their hands, allowing them to protect themselves from fraud,” said Andrew Rosen, president and CEO of Hawaii State Federal Credit Union. “We encourage our members to visit our Technology Centers to learn how to incorporate technology into their banking habits.”
