Technical Information

It is a randomly generated one-time code used as an extra layer of protection to confirm your identity when you are accessing your eBanking profile. After you successfully enroll in eBanking, each time you access eBanking, you are able to choose the verification method you prefer, either text message or phone call. The one-time verification code (also known as one-time passcode) is sent by text or confirmed through an automated phone call to a phone number on file with us. By requiring the entry of a one-time verification code and the use of a phone number you have on record, fraud is prevented even if an unauthorized user learns your eBanking Username and Password.

You can access eBanking with a web browser that uses at least a 128-bit encryption. 

First Bank’s eBanking and mobile app are not available for use outside of the United States. First Bank reserves the right to restrict activity from countries banned by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and additional countries where fraud trends are prevalent.
