How to Enable SMS Alerts in Canara Bank?

It is very important for all bank customers to keep their mobile number on their account up to date. There are a lot of things that will be missed like SMS alerts if the number is not registered. In this article, we are going to learn how to enable SMS alerts in Canara Bank.

Here you have to understand one thing. And that is according to the regulations of the Reserve Bank of India. The bank must send the SMS alert to the customer for all transactions (debit card, online, and UPI) taking place in the bank account. So there is no way for customers to change that.

But you can change the preference of SMS alerts for branch transactions you make. If you wish, you can change the limit beyond which you can receive the SMS alert on your registered mobile number. You can set different limits for debit and credit transactions.
