Mobile Banking FAQs
1. What is mobile banking?
Mobile banking allows you to access your accounts from the convenience of a smartphone or tablet. It's not a full replacement for online banking, but it does allow you to perform most of the common tasks associated with online banking.
2. What types of mobile banking does Kemba offer?
There are two ways to access mobile banking:
- Mobile website - mobile.kemba.com
Our mobile website, mobile.kemba.com, allows you to access your accounts using just about any cell phone that can access the internet. If you go to kemba.com from a mobile device, you will automatically be redirected to the mobile version of our website.
Apps are available for iOS and Android devices. Just go to the App Store or Google Play to download the blue Kemba app with the lion.

Mobile banking is free. However, data rates from carriers may apply.
5. Can I use mobile banking without first signing up for online banking?
Yes. You can sign up through the Kemba mobile app. You will be prompted to create a username and password, answer security questions. It's also important that you have a valid email address on file for security verification.
6. What happens if I get locked out of Mobile Banking?
You must call Kemba's Member Services at 513.762.5070 to have your password reset. Once your password is reset, you must first create a new password through Kemba's online banking via your personal computer. For security reasons, you may not create your new password on mobile banking. Once you've created your new password, you may use your username and new password to immediately login to mobile banking.

Card lost or stolen? See a suspicious card transaction? Freeze it! Mobile Banking users can now block or unblock their Kemba debit and credit cards. Just log into the mobile app, click the menu icon and then click on Card Controls. A 'freeze' will block all future transactions from getting an approval including any prearranged recurring charges you may have requested a merchant or biller to make. The transactions will be denied as long as this freeze is in place. Card Controls on the Mobile app will also allow members to mark a card as lost and reorder and tell us their travel plans
