1. Log in to your Internet banking account using your credentials.
2. Navigate to the section or tab related to "Account Services" or "Overdraft Protection."
3. Look for an option to apply for or manage overdraft protection.
4. Select the checking account for which you want to enable overdraft protection.
5. Follow the instructions provided by your bank, which may include selecting the linked account or specifying the type of overdraft protection you prefer (such as a savings account or line of credit).
6. Provide any necessary information or documentation required for the application.
7. Review the terms and conditions of the overdraft protection service.
8. Submit the application or request to your bank.

If you're unable to locate the specific option or have any questions, it's recommended to contact your bank's customer support for guidance and assistance in applying for overdraft protection using Internet banking.
