Huntington Bank Offers Customers Quick Access to Their Accounts with New Mobile App Feature ‘Quick Balance’

Thanks to a new mobile app feature, Huntington Bank customers now have the option to quickly check their account balances at the touch of a button on their mobile phones without having to go through the typical log-in process. Huntington is believed to be one of the few banks that offer the service that delivers results so fast.

The feature, known as Quick Balance, is an additional convenient service Huntington offers its customers to help them save time and keep track of their finances. With the new mobile feature, they can view their balances by opening the app rather than going through a series of steps as required by most banks.

“The most frequently asked customer question is how much money they have in their checking accounts. With Quick Balance, Huntington provides mobile customers with the ability to view their account balances in one easy step,” said Mary Navarro, retail and business banking director at Huntington.

To ensure the security of customer information, the Huntington Mobile app utilizes a multi-factor authentication system to verify identity and register devices. Once registered, customers can opt-in to the Quick Balance feature and select eligible accounts to display.

“Quick Balance provides a simple and secure way to check your balance while in line at the grocery store or between meetings at work,” said Paul Heller, chief technology and operations officer. “Along with Huntington Mobile Deposit, Quick Balance is another powerful convenient feature to help out customers in their busy, on-the-go lives."

Huntington Quick Balance and Huntington Mobile Deposit features are available in the Huntington Mobile app for iPhone® and Google Android® smartphones. For more information about Huntington Quick Balance, or Huntington Mobile Deposit, visit http://www.huntington.com/mobile.
