  2. Click on the small ‘register’ button to the left of the ‘login’ button at the top right of your screen.
  3. Now you to the left, select ‘Register with my card and ATM pin details.’ If you don’t have a card, you can also register with your account number. Just make sure you select that option before continuing.
  4. Insert your card number and ATM pin in the provided spaces.
  5. Check the ‘terms and conditions’ box.

Link Your Mobile Device To FNB Online Banking With The FNB App

The FNB app, in my opinion, is far ahead of any other banking app in South Africa. It makes earning eBucks a lot easier, it allows you to confirm transactions using just WIFI instead of the outdated OTP method, which is especially useful if you travel often, and it gives you the freedom to perform ANY banking task.

Here’s how you can link your mobile device to FNB online banking:
