FirstNet (Internet Banking) Frequently Asked Questions

Can I change my login to something easier to remember?

Yes, after you log in, click Options. At the Options screen, you will see the FirstNet ID field listed along with the Password and Email fields. Type in the FirstNet ID you wish to use. Remember to make it something easy for you to remember. If you do forget your FirstNet ID, you can always use the 12 digit Login ID originally assigned to you.

What do I do if I can't remember my pin/password or my account is locked?

Contact Community First Bank at 608-943-0150 or if you have Password Self Reset, simply click on “Reset Password.”

How often do I have to change my pin/password?

You are required to change your Pin/Password every 180 days for security reasons. You can change it more frequently if you’d like.

Do I Need Special Software Or Hardware?

The software and hardware requirements are listed in the Online Banking Agreement and Disclosure Statement. A secure browser incorporating secure socket layer (SSL) with 128-bit encryption is currently required to establish a connection to the login screen.

If I Open A New Account Or Take Out A Loan, Will That Account Number Automatically Show Up On My FirstNet Account?

Stop into one of our locations to add any new accounts to your FirstNet Account.

What If I Enter My Password Wrong?

For security reasons, after a few unsuccessful attempts to login, your FirstNet account will become locked. You will then need to contact Community First Bank to unlock the account or proceed with the Password Self Reset if you have this set up.

The PIN Reset feature will only work if these Setup Steps are completed.

If I Do An Online Transfer, Will That Show Immediately On My Account?

It will on your checking and savings accounts, but not on loan accounts. You will have to go to the Current Transactions view to see it.

How Do I Transfer Funds Once Or Schedule A Monthly Transfer From One Account To Another?

In the Account Listing screen, click on the drop down arrow next to the account you want to transfer from. Select Transfers. (Remember, the transfer relationships have to be set up before you can transfer any funds.) Then click on the drop down box next to Add Transfer From. Next select the account you want to transfer funds from. And finish by entering the amount you wish to transfer and which account you want to transfer to. Then click Submit. You will receive a confirmation number. Keep this number until you have verified that the transfer was made on your monthly statement.

Can I Download The Information From The Internet To My Home Computer For Record Keeping Purposes?

Yes, you can. From the Home Banking drop down menu, click Download. There are a number of download types which can be used. We have listed the most common software next to each file extension. Select the format for your transactions by clicking on the dot next to the format you wish.

How Can I View Previous Statements?

Once you open your FirstNet account, you won't be able to view previous statements until your regular statement has been created. You will then be able to view that statement on the Internet. After two months, you will be able to view two previous statements and after three months you will be able to view three previous statements. Eighteen months is the maximum number of previous statements that you will be able to view.

How Can I Get Help Using FirstNet?

When I Print My Statement Or Disclosure, The Far Right Column/Edge Doesn't Print.

Click on File and then Page Setup. Change the settings for the right and left margins to make them narrower. They are probably set at .75", so try changing them to .50". If you still don't see all of it when printed, keep reducing the size until the entire width of the statement will print.

If I Have Two FirstNet Logins, How Do I Switch From One To The Other?
