How is mobile web different from the full version of CWBdirect?

Mobile web offers the main functionality of the full version of CWBdirect but it’s optimized for a mobile device screen.

Some of the differences include:

  • Bill payees must first be set through the full version of CWBdirect. Bill payee setup isn’t available in mobile web.
  • Your account password can’t be changed in mobile web. It can only be changed through the full version of CWBdirect.
What does it cost?
Since mobile web uses data, please check with your wireless service provider for any costs associated with accessing it through your mobile device1.
Do I need to register before using mobile web?
No, if you have already registered for CWBdirect you will use the same username and password to log in to our mobile web banking. If you haven’t registered for CWBdirect, contact your local branch.
Is it safe to use my mobile device for banking?

Yes, it has the same high level of security measures as the full version of CWBdirect, including:

  • Encryption – CWB uses 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Encryption, which is accepted as the industry standard. Personal information is just as secure, with password protected login and increased authentication.
  • Session time-out – If you forget to log out, or your mobile device remains inactive during your session, our systems will automatically log you out.
  • If you lose your phone, your accounts can only be accessed if someone has the login information.
If my CWBdirect service is cancelled can I still access mobile web?
No, if your CWBdirect Online Banking service is cancelled, your username, password and security code will no longer be valid.
