      Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, IOS, and Android.
    • If you upgrade or change from one checking account to another you will not be able to view any
      scheduled transfers of BillPay payments for 24 hours within Online Banking.
    • Some members are seeing duplicate accounts. Please call 855.855.8805.
    • Some text alert messages are not being received. Please confirm with your mobile provider that you
      can receive short code messages.

      6 hours to login to Mint again.
    • If you use your old username and/or password to retrieve First Tech account information in Quicken,
      you'll be locked out of the new Online Banking on your next login attempt. Please update your First
      Tech credentials in Quicken.
    • If you use Direct Connect or Web Connect to download your First Tech accounts to Quicken you may
      notice duplicate entries downloaded to Quicken.
