How do I use SMS banking?

After signing an SMS banking agreement in the online bank, by phone or at a branch, you must first activate the service: send ON XXXX by text to (+371) 29 300 300, replacing XXX with the four-digit activation code in the agreement you sign.

Once Citadele SMS banking has been activated, if necessary, you can change your SMS banking settings in the online bank, setting:

  • which transactions (incoming and/or outgoing) or card transactions you wish to be notified about by SMS,
  • for what sums,
  • whether you wish to send requests by SMS for your account/card balance,
  • If you wish for messages about transactions to always be included in the account/card balance.
