Log On Process
First National Bank utilizes a multi-layered security method to authenticate users prior to gaining access to Online Banking. Access IDs, passwords, and security challenge questions are all a part of the log on process. To access FNB Online Banking through the Internet, you must log in for the first time using your Telebanking PIN, or your bank assigned Access ID and Password. If you are using the bank assigned Access ID and Password you will be prompted to change your password after logging in for the first time. This is for your own protection. In addition, we recommend you change your Password regularly to protect the security and privacy of your financial information. We recommend you change your Password immediately if it is compromised.
Access IDs and Passwords should be unique to each user accessing the service. Each signer is responsible for the confidentiality of his or her individual Access ID and Password. Access IDs and Passwords must never be compromised or shared with any other person. Anyone to whom you give your Access ID and Password will have full access to your accounts even if you attempt to limit that person’s authority. First National Bank reserves the right to restrict on-line access should we be made aware that your Access ID and Password have become compromised.
Your Access ID must be unique, and be between 6 and 17 characters in length. These characters can be all letters, all numbers, or a combination of both. Access IDs may be in all upper case, lower case, or a combination of both. For example, “CAT453”, “cat453”, or “Cat453”. Your Access ID is case sensitive, therefore must always be entered exactly as it was established during the First Time Log In process.
Your Password must be between 6 and 12 characters in length, and it must contain at least 1 number and 1 alphabetic character. Your password is case sensitive, which means that upper and lower case letters must be typed exactly as they appear.
The following are important steps you should consider to make your computer or mobile device more secure. While no individual step will eliminate all risk, when used together, these practices will strengthen your computer's security and help minimize threats.
- Set a strong password
- Install and use antivirus software. Installing an antivirus software program and keeping it up-to-date is a critical step in protecting your computer.
- Enable and configure your firewall. A firewall controls the flow of information between your computer and the internet.
- Apply software updates and enable automatic updates. While there are no guarantees, keeping your software updated helps prevent infections.
The first time you logon to FNB Online Banking, you will be required to provide information necessary to establish the additional security requirements for multi-layered authentication. You will also be asked to select a series of challenge questions with your own responses. These can be used in the future to authenticate your sign on if you are accessing the system through a different device.
Multi-layered authentication is necessary to further enhance your security when using FNB Online Banking, and to comply with current regulatory guidelines.
Enhanced Online Security is our Login authentication system for Online Banking. It utilizes multiple layers of security to ensure that your accounts and information remain secure. Enhanced Online Security protects you from fraud and identity theft by preventing unauthorized access to your accounts.
The system uses multiple layers of security ensuring unauthorized users cannot gain access to your accounts. We do this by verifying three important criteria:
- Your Log In Credentials - Access ID and Password must match with our system records or access is refused.
- Your Device - We check the device you are using - whether it's your computer, mobile phone or tablet. If we don't recognize the device, we may ask you to answer a Security Challenge question to ensure your identity.
- Your Location - If access is being requested from an unusual geographic location, we may ask you to answer one of your Challenge questions before giving you access.
When you are logging in, our Extended Validation Certificate will display as a "green bar" in your browser address bar. You can always enter your credentials with the assurance that if your browser address bar is green, your connection is safe. It is a known and trusted way to verify the authenticity of a website.
Transfers can be completed as follows: Checking to Checking, Checking to Savings, Savings to Checking, Savings to Savings, Checking to Loans, Savings to Loans.
Your ability to make transfers from your savings accounts and money market deposit accounts is restricted by Federal Regulations. For each of your savings accounts and money market accounts you are prohibited from making more than six preauthorized transfers per month; no more than three of which may be written to third parties, such as checks or ACH transfers.
Preauthorized withdrawals include transfers made through Internet Banking. The following transfers do not count towards your limit: transfers made by mail, messenger, ATM, or in person or withdrawals authorized by you by telephone or online, if the funds are mailed to you by check.
Stop Payment Requests
The Bank must receive all stop payment requests in such time and manner as to afford the bank a reasonable opportunity to act on it. If the Bank, prior to accepting the stop payment order has received the item, the Bank would not be held liable. The stop payment order will be invalid and the Bank will refund the fee. A stop payment order will automatically expire six (6) months after receipt unless the customer renews it by completing a new stop payment order. Only an authorized signer on the account can cancel a stop payment order prior to the automatic expiration date.
A stop payment order is required to be in writing and signed by the customer in order to be effective. According to the Uniform Electronic Transfer Act (2001), a typed name or PIN is intended to meet the signature requirements of TxB&CC Sec. 4.403(b) in regard to placing a stop payment order. Your logon to FNB Online Banking satisfies the signature requirement.
For Stop Payments on ACH transactions, disputes for debit card transactions, unauthorized remotely created checks or unauthorized ACH debits, please visit one of our branch locations.
There is a $15.00 fee for each Online Banking stop payment request. The fee will be charged automatically to the customer’s account the same day the stop payment is placed on the system.

Notice of Your Rights and Responsibilities
Security of your transactions is important to us. Use of FNB Online Banking services therefore requires a Access ID and password. If you lose or forget your Access ID, please call Customer Service at 936-327-1234, 7:30am to 5:30pm CST Monday through Friday.
We may accept, as authentic, any instructions given to us through the use of your Access ID or password. You agree to keep your Access ID and password secret and to notify us immediately if your Access ID or password is lost or stolen or if you believe someone else has discovered your Access ID or password. You agree that if you give your password to someone else, you are authorizing them to act on your behalf, and we may accept any instructions they give us to make transfers or otherwise use FNB Online Banking services. Do not discuss, compare, or share information about your account number(s) with anyone unless you are willing to give him or her full use of your money. If you furnish your password and grant actual authority to make transfers to another person (a family member or co-worker, for example) who then exceeds that authority, you are liable for the transfers unless we have been notified that transfers by that person are no longer authorized. FNB Online Banking enables you to change your password; we require that you do so regularly. We may be liable for certain security breaches to the extent required by applicable law and regulation. First National Bank reserves the right to restrict on-line access should we be made aware that your Access ID and Password have become compromised.
We do not assume any other liability or otherwise guarantee the security of information in transit to or from our facilities. Please note that we reserve the right to but are not obligated to 1) monitor and/or record all communications and activity related to FNB Online Banking services; and 2) require verification of all requested transfers in the manner we deem appropriate before making the transfer (which may include written verification by you). You agree that our records will be final and conclusive as to all questions concerning whether or not your Access ID or password was used in connection with a particular transaction. If any unauthorized use of your Access ID or password occurs, you agree to 1) cooperate with us and appropriate law enforcement authorities in identifying and prosecuting the perpetrator; and 2) provide reasonable assistance requested by us in recovering any unauthorized transfer of funds. We cannot accept notification of lost or stolen access IDs, passwords, or unauthorized transfers via email.
Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your Access ID or password has been lost or stolen. Telephoning us is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit). If you tell us within 2 business days, you can lose no more than $50. If you do NOT tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Access ID or password, and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from using your Access ID or password without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.
Also, if your periodic statement shows transfers that you did not make, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.
If you believe your Access ID or password has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call or write us at the telephone number or address listed below.
