When you apply for a Wells Fargo checking account, set up online banking by creating a unique user name and password, says Wells Fargo Online. Access your account from your computer, tablet or mobile phone. Type your user name and password in the orange box with the heading View Your Accounts in the upper left corner of the Wells Fargo website. Click on Go. You are redirected to a summary page listing any accounts you have, including checking, savings and credit card accounts.
The balance of each account is shown on the summary page. For details of all your recent transactions, click on the name of the account. From your accounts page, verify deposits, withdrawals, payments and other transactions. You can also set up account alerts as an extra security precaution, read archived account statements, monitor details of loans, order checks, and change personal information such as addresses or phone numbers.
Once your checking account is set up, it can be accessed, monitored and managed from your home, notes About.com. Additional customer support is available by paper post, phone or email.
