Mobile Deposit Guidelines

To help ensure that your mobile deposit is accepted, follow these guidelines:

  • Endorse the check with your (the account holder's) signature and mark it "For KeyBank Mobile Deposit Only"
  • When photographing the back of the check, the endorsement must be on the right side of the picture
  • Be sure to include all four corners of each check; images that are "blurry" cannot be accepted
  • Make sure the dollar amount entered when making the deposit matches the amount on the check
  • Keep your checks for 14 days. After 14 days, validate that the correct amount has been deposited into your account and then destroy your check
