First Hawaiian Bank Introduces Mobile Banking
(Honolulu, Hawaii, September 6, 2011) - To give its customers greater convenience and access to their accounts through their mobile phone or device, First Hawaiian Bank has launched FHB Mobile Banking, according to an announcement by Bob Harrison, the bank's president and chief operating officer.
FHB Mobile Banking enables customers to use their mobile device to check their account balances, transfer funds between First Hawaiian Bank accounts, pay bills, and locate the nearest First Hawaiian branch or ATM. The new mobile banking service is available free to all First Hawaiian customers.
“Customers can access and manage their money from virtually anywhere at anytime,” said Harrison. “We recognize that today customers need immediate and secure access to their accounts and FHB Mobile Banking provides both,” said Harrison.
Signing up for FHB Mobile Banking is simple and customers have the option to use their cell phone or mobile device to bank on-the-go via text message, using a mobile web browser or by downloading a free APP for the iPhone, Android, or Blackberry platforms.
- Going mobile is safe, secure and convenient. FHB Mobile Banking has the same strong security features employed by the bank's FHB Online internet banking service. Those include:
- Authenticating users with the same credentials they use for FHB Online
- No storing of personal data on the mobile device
- Enforcing automatic time-out sessions to protect customer privacy
- Deactivating the application in the event the mobile device is lost or stolen.
FHB Mobile Banking continues First Hawaiian's commitment to providing innovative and convenient solutions for its customers. When the bank launched FHB Online, it was the first local bank to introduce a true internet banking solution. More recently, First Hawaiian was the first local bank to introduce Popmoney, allowing customers to electronically send money using the innovative and convenient new service to Pay Other People (POP).

First Hawaiian Bank (www.fhb.com ), with assets of $15 billion, was founded in 1858 and is Hawaii's oldest and largest bank. It has 58 branches in Hawaii, three in Guam and two in Saipan.
