Every bank has their own website and mobile app for online banking that provide users access to their personal bank account information and functions including transaction history.

Once everything is done, you are all set to check your transaction history.

Before moving to the steps, first download and install your bank mobile app. Just search your bank name on the app store of your smartphone (Google Play Store on Android and Apple App Store on iPhone). Alternatively, if you don’t want to use mobile app, you can directly visit your bank website with any web browser on your phone such as Google Chrome or Safari. Here’s a complete step-by-step guide -
  1. Open your bank mobile app or website. As for the reference purpose, we are using SBI bank here. You can download Yono app or visit onlinesbi website.
  2. Login to your account - Now you have to enter your login details such as ID and password. Some banks also have additional security including M-PIN, security questions, OTP verification, etc. Just complete the login process.
  3. Find Transaction History - Most probably, you will find this option under My Account section. If you are using Yono app for SBI, tap on Your Account and then click View Transactions under the account balance option. This will open up your transaction history (also know as m-passbook) where you can find all information of your transactions.

2. Check your bank mini statement via SMS or missed call


Almost every bank has either SMS or missed call service which lets you check the mini statement of your bank account containing details of your last transactions. This is one of the easiest ways to find your transaction history as you don’t even need internet for this. Not just that but it also doesn’t require you to login to any website or install an application on your smartphone.

Again we are using SBI bank here for the reference purpose of this tutorial. Just give a missed call on 09223866666 from the mobile number which is registered with your bank account. After that, you will receive an SMS on your phone with your mini statement. Alternatively, you can send an SMS by typing ‘MSTMT’ on 09223866666. In this method also, you will receive an SMS which will show the last 5 transactions of your bank account.
