What is a widget?

A widget is a tile you can put on your phone's home screen. They can do more than things that regular app icons do. The Jefferson Bank Widget allows you to easily access popular features in the Mobile Banking App.

How to Access the Widget Feature

When you tap on the Jefferson Bank logo on the widget, the app will launch. If you tap one of the shortcut icons, the app will open directly to that section after you confirm your identity.

Features You Can Access from the Home Screen Widget

  • Transfer - Create a transfer between any of your accounts, set up a recurring transfer, view activity, and access external transfer accounts.
  • Zelle - Quickly and easily send money to friends and family! You can also view activity and manage your settings with this shortcut.
  • Deposit - Make a deposit with just a touch- simply choose what account to deposit funds to, enter the amount, and take photos of the front and back of the check.
  • Cards - Quickly manage your cards! Lock and unlock cards, set travel notifications, change your PIN, manage alerts, and report a lost or stolen card directly from the app.
