In today's fast-paced world, managing finances efficiently is essential. Fortunately, digital banking tools offer a convenient solution, providing both time-saving features and robust security measures to safeguard your financial transactions.

Mobile Banking Tools Offer Both Security and Convenience


Let's explore a selection of digital banking tools that combine convenience with security, empowering you to streamline your financial management:


Mobile Wallet

What is mobile wallet?

Mobile wallet is a simple way to use your Hancock Whitney credit and debit cards to make purchases in stores, online, and in apps with your smartphone or tablet. Your bank account or card information is linked to mobile wallet and securely stored on your device. This means you can make quick and secure purchases with your mobile device instead of a physical card.

How is mobile wallet secure?

Mobile wallets often require biometric authentication, such as fingerprint or face recognition, adding an extra layer of security compared to traditional card payments.

Secondly, mobile wallets employ state-of-the-art encryption technology to safeguard your sensitive financial information. End-to-end encryption ensures that your payment data is securely transmitted from your device to the recipient, making it virtually impossible for cybercriminals to intercept and decipher.

Mobile wallet providers also implement robust fraud monitoring systems that analyze transaction patterns and detect any suspicious activity. Real-time alerts notify you of any unauthorized transactions or potential security breaches, allowing you to take immediate action to protect your funds.

Mobile Deposit

What is mobile deposit?

Instead of physically going to a Hancock Whitney Financial Center or ATM, you can simply take a photo of the front and back of the check using your Hancock Whitney Mobile Banking app and submit it for deposit.

How is mobile deposit secure?

Mobile deposit typically requires you to endorse the back of the check with your signature and a specific endorsement phrase provided by Hancock Whitney. This endorsement serves as an additional security measure, verifying that you are the authorized recipient of the check and preventing unauthorized individuals from depositing it.

Additionally, with end-to-end encryption, secure authentication, advanced check image processing, and adherence to regulatory standards, mobile deposit transactions are protected against fraud and unauthorized access. Embracing mobile deposit technology empowers users to streamline their banking experience while maintaining the highest standards of security and trustworthiness.
