First Hawaiian Bank has launched their mobile banking service called FHB Mobile Banking, according to the bank’s president and chief operating officer, Bob Harrison.

FHB Mobile Banking enables customers to use their mobile device to check their account balances, transfer funds between First Hawaiian Bank accounts, pay bills, and locate the nearest First Hawaiian branch or ATM. The new mobile banking service is available free to all First Hawaiian customers. Users can access their account using a mobile web browser or by downloading a free app for the iPhone, Android, or Blackberry platforms.

“Customers can access and manage their money from virtually anywhere at any time,” said Harrison, in a written statement.  “We recognize that today customers need immediate and secure access to their accounts and FHB Mobile Banking provides both.”

FHB Mobile Banking has the same strong security features employed by the bank’s internet banking service. Those include: authenticating users, no storing of personal data on the mobile device, enforcing automatic time-out sessions, and deactivating the application in the event the mobile device is lost or stolen.
