Apple Touch ID

What is Touch ID?

Touch ID is Apple’s fingerprint authentication technology. You will be able to choose if you want to use a fingerprint instead of your username and password to access your Wauchula State Bank mobile banking app.

What devices can Touch ID be used on?

Touch ID is an Apple-specific feature. Currently, Touch ID is available for iPhone 5S and higher, running iOS 8 or above. The mobile app also supports the fingerprint ID for Android users.

How does Touch ID work?

Touch ID allows you to log into the Wauchula State Bank mobile app with fingerprints that are enabled on your mobile device. Once Touch ID is enabled for the mobile app, you place your finger on the home button and the device reads the fingerprint to confirm it is an authorized fingerprint. When your fingerprint is confirmed, you are automatically signed into the app.

Does Touch ID prevent other users from getting into my account?

When you enable Touch ID log on, any fingerprint stored on your device—now or in the future—can be used to log into the Wauchula State Bank app. You should only enable Touch ID if you are the only person who has registered fingerprints on your device. You can add or remove fingerprints in your device settings. You can disable Touch ID at any time in the Settings menu of the Mobile Banking App.

How can I enable Touch ID?

If you already have Touch ID enabled on your device, you will be prompted to set up Touch ID the next time you log into the Wauchula State Bank mobile app.

You can enable Touch ID from the Settings menu on the left panel of your Wauchula State Bank app.

Will Touch ID work if I don’t have fingerprints enabled for the Touch ID on my device?

No. Fingerprints must be added to your device within the Settings menu of your iPhone.

Will a password be required when using Touch ID?

No. Once Touch ID is enabled, your fingerprint is the only required login credential.

If the device doesn’t recognize my fingerprint, can I still access my account?

Yes. You always have the option to log in using the four-digit PIN enabled at the time the fingerprint login was established, or simply click “Cancel” when the app asks for your fingerprint and type in your username and password.

What if my Touch ID enabled device is lost or stolen?

If your mobile device is lost or stolen, and/or you feel your log on credentials may have been compromised, please call Wauchula State Bank immediately. We also recommend that you contact your wireless service provider to have your device deactivated.

What if I don't want to use Touch ID anymore?

You can disable Touch ID in the Settings menu of the Mobile Banking App.

Find ATMs closest to you or download our Mobile Banking iPhone or Android app. Click on “Locations” and search for the closest surcharge-free ATM by clicking on the icon.

Why is the gas station charging me a larger dollar amount than I am pumping?

The gas station does not know how much gas you intend to purchase when you first use your card to pay at the pump. It estimates an amount and then makes an authorization request for that amount to ensure that you have that much in your account before it lets you pump gas. The actual amount on your receipt is what will be debited from your account.

Can I change my card's PIN?

Yes. You can change your PIN number at any time by calling 1-877-265-9594 or 1-859-488-4130 (internationally).

Residential Real Estate Loans

If I am purchasing a new home, do I need to have a contract before applying for a loan?

No. We can complete a prequalification to determine the loan amount and product that best suits your needs.

Do I need to have a checking or savings account at Wauchula State Bank in order to apply for a mortgage loan?

No. We do not require either. We are glad to work with applicants that are new to Wauchula State Bank.

I received a bill for my property taxes but I thought this was included in my monthly loan payment?

If your property taxes are escrowed on your loan, you may still receive a statement from the county tax collector, but Wauchula State Bank will automatically pay this for you each year from your escrow account. Please contact us if you have questions or are not sure if your taxes are escrowed.

I received my monthly billing notice and my payment has increased. Why did it go up?

If your property taxes or your homeowner’s insurance are escrowed on your loan, it is possible that one of those payments increased and your monthly loan payment was adjusted to cover the additional cost. If you have an Adjustable-Rate Loan, it is also possible that your interest rate changed, causing an increase in your payment amount. Feel free to contact us for additional information.

Do you require that I have mortgage insurance on my loan?

If you finance more than 80 percent of the appraised value of your home, mortgage insurance may be required and added to your monthly payment amount.

Is a home inspection required for a new home purchase?

Wauchula State Bank does not require a home inspection, but you may choose to have an inspection on the property you want to purchase.

Will I receive a copy of my appraisal?

Yes. If we order an appraisal to determine a property’s value, we will promptly give you a copy of the appraisal even if your loan does not close.
