Q: What devices are supported with the Mobile App?
A: Apple iPhones and iPads with iOS operating system version 9.0 and above are supported.
Android devices with any of the following operating systems are supported: Jelly Bean (4.3.1+), Kit-Kat (4.4-4.4.4), Lollipop (5.0-5.1.1), Marshmallow (6.0-6.0.1) and Nougat (7.0-7.1.2).
Q: Can I use my Windows phone to access Mobile Banking?
A: Yes! At this time there is not an App for your windows device, simply visit www.fsbbank.net for access to Online Banking through your mobile browser.
Q: What is the difference between the different Login types and how do I change it?
A: In order to change your login type, select settings from the hamburger menu within our Mobile App and click Login Type. You will need to log out, close the app and relaunch it before the changes will take effect. We always recommend setting up security on your mobile device in addition to the security within the Mobile App.
Normal Login will require a username and password or a PIN every time our app is accessed. The username and password will be required for the initial login. After the initial login you will have the option of enabling PIN login, which will bypass the username and password for future logins.
Auto Login will allow access to account balances only. If you are accessing anything else in our app you will need to enter your username and password or PIN (if enabled).
Fingerprint will allow access to account balances only using the biometric reader on your mobile device. It is the same as Auto Login, but more secure. If you are accessing anything else in our app you will need to enter your username and password or PIN (if enabled).
Q: Can I receive alerts via text message?
A: Yes, alerts can be set up through our Mobile App and sent via text message or email. Alerts set up via Online Banking are separate from the alerts set-up on our Mobile App. If you currently have alerts set-up in Online Banking you will simply set up your custom alerts on our new Mobile App and select your delivery method.
Q: Is First Savings Bank’s Mobile App secure, and what systems are in place for security?
A: Yes, our new Mobile App has state of the art data encryption, username and password requirements and timed user sessions. First Savings Bank feels that a customer’s data security should be a top priority!

If this is your first time making a deposit via our Mobile App you will need to accept the disclosure. Deposits made through our new Mobile App can be viewed in the deposit history.
Q: What if the app doesn’t read my check?

Make sure that the numbers on the bottom of the check are easy to read and that the check contains a numeric and written dollar amount, a date, a payee, MICR encoding (the numbers on the bottom), a signature of the maker (the person who wrote the check) and your endorsement on the back. If the check cannot be read through the Mobile App, please visit your nearest First Savings Bank branch or First Savings Bank ATM to make your deposit.

Q: Can I pay bills through the Mobile App?
A: Yes, paying your bills has never been easier! Prior to using our App you will need to set-up Bill Pay through your Online Banking (if you are already using Bill Pay in Online Banking there is no need to set anything up), if it has not been set-up you will get an error from our App that states “SSN is invalid for consumer”. Once Bill Pay is established through Online Banking you never have to go back to it. You can add, change and remove payees by selecting Pay Bills from the landing page or the hamburger menu and select Payees from our Mobile App. You are also able to view your Bill Pay history and cancel payments (that show as Scheduled in the history).
Q: How do I create a new payee?
A: Select Pay Bills and click Add a Payee.
Q: Can I expedite a payment?
A: No. Be sure to review the delivery date when making your payment through our Mobile App to make sure your payment will arrive on time. Not all payees accept electronic payments, for payees who do not; a paper check is cut and mailed to them. We recommend that you set the send date at least five (5) business days in advance of your bill due date. For payees who are able to accept Electronic Funds Transfers (EFT), we recommend that you set the send date at least three (3) business days in advance of the due date.
Android - When the calendar comes up to set the send date, in the upper right hand corner, you will see either check or electronic along with the expected delivery date of the payment.
Apple Devices – When the calendar is open, in the grey bar running across the top, click Delivery Option. This will show you the payment type (Check or Electronic). The expected delivery date can be seen circled in red on the calendar or under the Send On date from the Payees screen.

Q: How do I set up an account for this service?
A: On the Add Account window, enter the information for the account you would like to set-up (this will include information like Financial Institution name, routing number, account number, account type and the primary account holders name). To ensure that you are the owner of the account, the service makes a small trial deposit and then a trial withdrawal from the account the following business day (the withdrawal is less than a dollar and is never larger than the amount of the deposit). Once the trial transactions have posted to the account, select the account from your accounts list within the new Mobile App and you will be asked to enter the amounts of both trial transactions. If the values are entered correctly your account will be activated and you may begin using the account to transfer money.
