How-to customize Scotiabank Alerts 

Get ATM withdrawal Alerts, point of sale Alerts, set future dated transaction reminders, turn your credit card ON or OFF and more. 

Let's get started. 

Follow the steps below.

Step 1 - Sign in to Scotia OnLine

Go to Scotia OnLine, enter your card number or username, password and then click "sign in". Depending on your security settings, you will have to verify your identity through Face ID, Touch ID or through a verification code, sent to your registered email address. 

Once signed in, you will will see the "My Accounts Summary" page. 

You should receive your verification code in your email's inbox immediately. If you don't see it, check your spam and/or promotions folder. If after a couple minutes, it's still not there, click the "Send me a verification code" link.

Step 2 - Go to Scotiabank Alerts

Click on the settings icon in the menu and select"Scotiabank Alerts" from the dropdown. 

Step 3 - Choose Alert category

On the Scotiabank Alerts page, you will find 4 categories of alerts (notifications) that you can customize, including: 

  • Balance notifications
  • Payment notifications
  • Transaction notifications
  • Security notifications

To view the options under each category, click on the red triangle to the left of each category to expand. 



Step 4 - Select email and/or app notifications


To configure the settings for an alert, you will first need to selecte email and/or app notifications next to the alert that you wish to customize. 

In this exmaple, we are going to enable and customize alerts for ATM withdrawals. 


Step 5 - Customize and save


Once you've selected email and/or app notifications you can now enter a value in the "amount over" field to receive a notification when any amount over that amount is withdrawn from an ATM. 

Next you can use the checkboxes to the right to apply that setting to all of your accounts or to specific accounts. 

You should then go through the various alert categories and repeat the process as you see fit. 

When you're finished, just click save. 

You've now successfully customized Scotiabank Alerts!
