In other words, subscribers of SBI's internet banking service can turn on/off and choose among different types of alerts through the bank's SMS alert service, according to a video tutorial shared by the bank on its website. Among other options, SBI customers can switch on or off SMS alerts that notify the subscriber about occurrence of different events, such as debit card purchase, issuance of cheque book and money deposit in the account, according to the bank. Through its SMS alerts facility, SBI provides updates to its customers on different kinds of transactions taking place in the account.
