You authorize us to rely on any instructions sent from the mobile device we have on record.  You further agree to assume all risks associated with banking through text.  Unlike most of the Services, text banking does not require any username or password. For example, if another individual is able to access your text messages, they will have access to text banking, and you understand that they will be able to see your account information and you will be liable for any transactions initiated by them.

In addition, standard texting rates will apply, so be sure to check with your wireless carrier.
