How do You Set it up?

Your Wells Fargo Online login is easy to set up if you already have a bank check or savings account. Wells Fargo calls this the “enrollment” sign-up process. You can call 800-956-4442 if you want to register over the phone. If you are going to visit a physical branch to set up a new account, you can then set up online banking. 

Wells Fargo Online banking does not have a monthly subscription fee. However, certain charges can apply for the same-day payments made via its bill-pay service. Once you sign up, you can leverage convenient features such as Wells Fargo SurePay.

Simple Steps to get Started

Follow these steps to build your online access account at Wells Fargo.

Gather the Necessary Details

You will need to collect the following personal details to set up your account. Include your name, social security number, Wells Fargo account number(s), loan number, if appropriate, debit card number, and birth date.

Entering one of your Wells Fargo account numbers or the account number printed on your ATM/debit card will allow you to access all your accounts. If you do not have a number on your account, enter your birth date.

Set a Password and a User Name

You’ll be asked to set up a username and password for accessing your account during the registration process. Wells Fargo allows the username and passwords to include 6 to 14 characters and to include one letter or more. Usernames and passwords must have fewer than nine numbers in a row, and must also meet other terms.

Complete Your Access Agreement Online

Wells Fargo has an online access agreement that outlines the responsibilities of the bank towards you, your responsibilities as a customer, your waiver of class action rights, and limits on the liability of the bank to you. 

Carefully read this agreement — it includes online and mobile services available via online platforms provided by Wells Fargo Online, Wells Fargo Company Online, Wells Fargo Mobile, and Wells Fargo Advisors.

Your Email Address is Then Checked 

Wells Fargo will send you an email message with a six-digit code as part of its authentication process and a connection returning you to the Wells Fargo website, where you can enter the code to verify your email address.
