You mean my phone is good for more than taking selfies?

Heidi Thole answers:

A picture is worth a thousand words. Every picture tells a story. Picture perfect. Your life in pictures.

They say we are going to be the most documented generation of all time. Everywhere you look there is someone snapping a selfie with their smartphone.

But did you know more people die each year from selfies than shark attacks? Now, I’m not saying selfies are a bad thing. I myself love the occasional selfie with my kiddos (otherwise I’m never in the picture!). But I do feel that we can do more with our smartphones than just rack up heaps of photos. In fact I think one of the best things you can do for yourself with your smart phone is Mobile Banking1.

If you don’t already have it, check it out! It’s totally secure. All information is stored within Bank Forward’s internet banking system, not on your mobile device. Once you download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play you can inquire on accounts, transfer money, make loan payments and more. That includes making deposits right on your phone2!!

And I say again, it is totally secure! Much, much more secure, say, than taking a selfie on the edge of the Grand Canyon. So come on, put your selfie stick down and go to the Bank Forward app on your smart phone, and get authenticated today!
