Baton Rouge Telco’s Text Banking lets you simply and securely get balance and transaction information, and receive alerts about your Telco accounts. Once you’ve enrolled, just text the short code command that you need to 454545, that’s it!


In the Mobile App, click on More in the bottom navigation.  Select Settings at the top, and then My Settings.  Scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Enable for Text” next to the mobile phone number.  You’ll receive a text confirmation code.  Enter the code and that’s it! You’re now enrolled in Text Banking.

Now you’re ready to customize the alerts you’d like to receive.

From your mobile device, tablet, or desktop login to Online Banking at brtelco.org. Unfortunately, at this time you are unable to customize alerts in Text Banking via the Mobile App.
