How To View FNB Username (FNB App & Online Banking)

If you’ve forgotten your FNB (First National Bank) username, but you still have access to your FNB mobile app, then you’ll be able to view it very quickly.

  1. Log in to your FNB mobile App
  2. On the top left of your screen tap on the hamburger menu.
  3. On the drop-down menu, scroll all the way down and tap on ‘settings’
  4. Tap on the ‘My Username’ tab
  5. Once you’re in your username tab you’ll be able to view and change your username.

Just keep in mind if your FNB App hasn’t been verified yet, then you won’t be able to view your username until you’ve been through the verification process. I highly recommend you take a look at an article that I wrote that will walk you through exactly how to verify your FNB App and mobile device here.

I’ll be honest; the verification process isn’t exactly user friendly, so make sure you check out that guide.

What if you don’t have access to the FNB app, is there another way you can view or even reset your user and password? There sure is. I’ll cover exactly how in the next sub-heading.

If you’re trying to log into your online banking, but you’ve completely forgotten your username or password, then the good news is you don’t have to physically walk into an FNB branch to reset them anymore. All you’ll need to do is follow these steps carefully.

Before diving in, I just need you to make sure you have the right information with you. To reset your password or view your username, you’ll need the same I.D or passport number that you used to open your FNB account, as well as either your accounts username or password (depending on what you’re trying to reset.

Done. At this point you should be able to login to your online banking using your new username or password.

At this point, you should be able to view your current username, and you’ll be able to change it if you want to.

Still Struggling? Contact FNB Directly

If you’re still struggling to get hold of your username or password even after trying everything that I recommended, then you’re going to have to contact FNB directly.

Fortunately FNB does have a few contact options:

  • You could try their online chat feature here. This is a great option if you don’t want to waste your airtime. I just have to warn you there always seems to be a long waiting list and the chat feature seems to be a bit buggy at times.
  • Another option you have is to give an FNB representative a call here. Again, prepare to wait a while for someone to answer. If you’re low on airtime then I wouldn’t recommend this option.
  • Finally, you could also walk into an FNB branch. Click here to use their branch locator, it will help you find a bank that’s closest to you. Before going into a branch just make sure you take as many supporting documents as possible. There’s nothing worse than being asked to return with other documents later.

Based on what I’ve seen, they’re definitely a lot more helpful in person at their branches than they are online. So if you can find the time, I recommend just walking into a branch.

Final Thoughts

If you have the right details with you then finding and resetting your password and username can be a very simple process. However, if you don’t, then this process can turn into an endless nightmare. If it comes to that then don’t be tempted to delay the problem, online banking is a very useful tool that you’ll need access to sooner or later. So just bite the bullet and contact FNB personally using the options I gave you above.

  1. Hi Guys,
    I have a real problem. My husband and myself both have Smart Accounts with FNB. We have been in Australia for quite some time as we have not been able to return due to Covid and my Husband is also waiting for surgery here.
    Both our accounts are not accepting the Usernames and Passwords for our accounts we have used for a long time. We cannot re-set these either since our Banking Cards have expired.
    How can we get access to our accounts please?
    I have tried Calling several FNB departments and I have sent e-mails to quite a few departments as well – no luck there.
