text alerts

What are text alerts?

Text alerts help to give you more control over your money. You can set up Act Now Alerts, Arranged overdraft alerts, upper and lower balance limit alerts and mini statement alerts which you'll receive by text message.

Act Now Alerts

Act Now Alerts will tell you when you go into an unarranged overdraft or are about to have a payment rejected.

Act Now Alerts will help you stay aware of your overdraft use and manage the costs more efficiently.

You can select how you wish to receive Act Now Alerts and switch them on and off through Digital Banking or the Royal Bank app.

 

Arranged overdraft alerts

If you apply for an overdraft, you will also be enrolled to receive text alerts when you use your arranged overdraft.

Being enrolled for arranged overdraft alerts will help you stay aware of your overdraft use and manage the costs more efficiently.

You can select how you wish to receive arranged overdraft alerts and switch them on and off through Digital Banking or the Royal Bank app.
