New FSB Online Banking FAQ's

1) Why is First State Bank of Uvalde changing its Online Banking?
Beginning December 11, 2017, we will be upgrading many of our online banking services. We want to provide our customers with an Online Banking that is easy to navigate and is user friendly. Bill Pay has been integrated onto the home page. You have the opportunity to categorize your transactions and create spending reports.

2) Will my old user ID and password work with the new Online Banking?
Your user ID will be the same as except it will be in all lower case. For example, if your user ID is JohnDoe55, it will become johndoe55. Your initial password will be “fsb” plus the last 4 digits of the user’s SSN. You will be prompted to change your password the first time you log in on Monday December 11, 2017 or thereafter. You will also have to accept the Terms and Conditions.

3) If I use Bill Pay in the old system, will I need to retype all my payees or recurring payments into the new system?
Our bill pay service is not changing. There will be no changes to your payees and payment history. Bill Pay will not be available from December 8 at 5:00pm to December 11 at 9:00am to perform the necessary upgrade.

4) Will I have Mobile Banking Access?
If you are currently enrolled in Mobile Banking, your access will not be affected. If you would like our Mobile Banking please down load our First State Bank of Uvalde app from the Apple or Google app store.

5) Why do I have to complete three security challenge questions?
The purpose of the security challenge questions is to increase security and decrease fraud. For your protection, you will be prompted to answer 3 random security questions with answers that are less likely to be compromised from social media sites or other online outlets. FSB highly recommends not using the same answer for each question. The answers you create for your security questions will not be case sensitive.

6) Why do we have to change our password every 6 months?
FSB views information security as a top priority. The multi-factor authentication built into the Online Banking platform allows you to identify that you are logging into FSB Online and not a fraudulent Online Banking platform set up to look like FSB. The security questions will be prompted if you are logging into Online Banking from a computer you have not registered as private.
Please keep your FSB Online user ID, password, and answers to your security question in a secure location to ensure you remember them but no one else has access to them.

7) Will I have access to my Account History?
Account history will be available in the new system. Once you've logged on to the new system, make sure all your accounts are displayed, and make sure your personal information and preferences are set up properly. You will initially have approximately 4 to 5 months of history available at time of upgrade and then a rolling 18 month of history.

8) Will I have access to eStatements ?
Your eStatements are free and will continue to function as they always have. If you haven't signed up to receive electronic statements, now is the perfect time to do so. eStatements will be available to save or preview for two years.
