Web-Enabled Mobile FAQs

I don't have a smart phone. Can I use mobile banking on my standard mobile phone?
Yes. If your mobile phone includes web browsing capability, simply access your mobile phone's web browser feature and key in in the browser address field. LAPFCU's mobile website auto-senses your mobile phone and optimizes the data display to accommodate your phone's screen. You will then be able to log on to PATROL Online Banking and use our online banking services.

I am trying to access the new mobile web site, but I am getting a page that says "Powered by Mshift." Is this the current mobile web application?
No. Most telephonic web browsers will automatically re-route you to the new web site, but you may need to clear your internet web browser and "cookies" to access the new site.

What if my smart phone or mobile phone is lost or stolen?
If your phone is lost or stolen, please do the following:
Call LAPFCU at 877-MY-LAPFCU (877-695-2732) or go to our Mobile Banking page to disable text banking on your mobile phone
