This is how SBI’s WhatsApp banking works


You can check your account balance and mini statement at State Bank of India (SBI) via WhatsApp now. SBI has announced that it is now on WhatsApp and encouraging customers to take advantage of these services. Not only that, SBI also offers WhatsApp services on their credit cards where the customer can get important updates regarding their card through the messaging app. However, before opting for these services, a client must be registered. Make sure your current mobile number is linked to your SBI account for seamless WhatsApp banking.

SBI via his Twitter account said, “Your bank is now on WhatsApp. Get to know your account balance and view the mini statement on the go.”

To opt for the service via SBI WhatsApp Banking, the account holder must first register.

To register, the account holder must send an SMS to 7208933148 with the text ‘WAREG’ and your account number with a space between them. It should be noted that you must send the SMS through your mobile number registered with the SBI account. After completing the registration process, you will receive a message from SBI number 90226 90226 on your WhatsApp number.

You can simply send a “Hi SBI” to 90226 90226 or reply to the WhatsApp message you just received and follow the instructions to benefit from SBI services.

A bank account holder can enjoy services such as account balance, mini statement and unsubscribe from WhatsApp Banking.

Also, the largest public sector bank offers WhatsApp banking services to customers with credit cards under SBI Card WhatsApp Connect.
