How to Login for First Time; SBI Internet Banking

You should get something done before logging in for the first time. We all know that a username and a password are needed for logging into anything.

Where can you get it? Do you have any idea?

Well, read this article to find more about how to activate internet banking in SBI and get temporary login credentials for the first time usage.

I have given two methods here. You can use any of them as per your convenience.

Method 1: Activate Internet Banking In SBI by Visiting the Branch

Here, you need to visit your bank branch only one time in order to get the temporary username and password.

Step 1: As I said earlier, you need to have login details. That’s why you must visit the nearby State Bank branch. Consult with an officer and tell them you are there to open an internet banking account.

Here, you must remember that an SBI bank account is needed for opening online banking. If you don’t have a regular bank account, you can’t even have net banking, let alone activating it.

When you tell them the purpose of your visit, they will give you a form to fill. Don’t worry! It is a basic form needed to activate online SBI banking. You will have to fill it with your name, account details, email, phone number, etc.

The form filling will not take the whole day. As you return the same, you will be provided with the net banking kit in which you can find the temporary username and password for your SBI net banking account.

Step 2: I know you are ready to log into your account right away. But you should wait for a day (24 hours) to get the temporary credentials activated. That means you will not be able to sign into your account if you try within that given time.

Step 6: Now that you have logged into the account with the temporary details. Hence, you will be asked to choose a username. You should bear in mind that username can’t be changed once selected. Along with the username, the webpage asks you to enter the kit number as well.
