Alerts do not prevent account events from occurring — they just alert you of their presence.
Certain alerts are issued only once per account event you select, and some alerts are recurring. Please see our FAQs on Account Alerts for more detailed template information.
Alerts cannot be guaranteed to be issued or arrive within a certain time period of any account event. We do our best to provide alerts in a timely manner with accurate information. However, alerts may be delayed or prevented by a variety of factors beyond our control such as system failures with internet or cellular providers.
To stop receiving an alert, open the Alerts menu and click “Delete” next to the alert you wish to stop.
If you choose to have alerts sent as texts to your mobile phone, message and data rates from your cell phone or internet provider may apply.
