Tuesday, July 23, 2019
For Mobile Banking: Update your First Dakota app to the newest version in your app store. Then delete our OLD app from your device.
For Online Banking: Go to the Log In button on www.firstdakota.com and choose Online Banking. Use your current Online Banking credentials. Or log in to https://myemobile.firstdakota.com/login.
YES, there are two things that may require action from you:
1 Alerts: You will need to establish new alerts. There are TWO options: Balance Alerts and Transaction Alerts. Select "Accounts" and click on "Manage Alerts". Choose your options from there.
2. Bank-to-Bank Recurring External Transfers – If you have a recurring bank-to-bank transfer, you will need to set it up again after you log in the very first time. You should have received a letter and phone call from us if this affects you.
No. Your existing Username and Password will work. If you log in using fingerprint or facial recognition, you will select that option after you log into Mobile Banking for the first time.
- Your existing Username and Password
- Alias and Password
- Biometrics (Face ID/Touch ID can only be utilized after you log in and successfully complete the verification process)
- 4-Digit PIN (mobile app only)
Very Important: Don’t forget what your longer password is, because when you complete a transaction that involves the movement of money outside of First Dakota (i.e. setting up a new external account or new payee in bill payment), you will be prompted to enter your full password.
You will be prompted to enter your email address and your cell number. The system will guide you through a few extra security steps to receive a one-time passcode. These extra steps are called Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), and create another layer of security, which provides additional protection for you.
You will need to have access to your cell phone in order to receive the unique one-time passcode via text. If your phone doesn’t accept texts, or you have a landline, you can choose to receive your one-time passcode via an automated voice call.
VERY IMPORTANT: If you have any questions or need help with this, please call 800-486-4712 for assistance.
At the time of log-in, if you check the box stating: “Don’t ask for codes again on this computer”, and you always use the same device, you only need to enter the code once. If you log in using a different device, you will be prompted to enter a new verification code for security reasons.
The layout of the screens will be a little different, and you can customize your dashboard preferences at any time. Follow these instructions to customize your online banking and mobile banking dashboards. New Feature/Functionality* includes:
- MoneyPass ATM locations will be integrated into our Mobile and Online Banking under locations
- We will keep you informed of upcoming events, holiday hours, etc. through messages and push notifications
- Order checks – no need to make a special trip to the bank
- Order a Checkcard replacement – these cards will be delivered in the mail and take 5-7 business days. If you need your card sooner than that, visit one of our locations and we’ll create one on the spot
- Add notes, tags and pictures to your transactions
Examples: Notes could be reminders to contact the bank or company about a specific transaction. Categorize your spending with tags such as: entertainment, groceries, gas, etc. Take photos of your receipts or warranty information and store it electronically with the transaction.
*The above list is not all-inclusive.
Absolutely! If you have recurring transfers between two accounts at First Dakota, they will continue to process as they have in the past.
Q: How about my external transfers between First Dakota and my other bank accounts, will those still work the same?
All approved/verified external accounts will be ready for you to use the first time you log in.
VERY IMPORTANT: If you have a recurring bank-to-bank / external transfer, we have already contacted you and you understand you will need to log in and set up your recurring transfer in the new system before the next transfer date. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns: 800-486-4712.

Our system will display every Checkcard associated with your accounts for a short period of time.

Yes. In the app or from a desktop computer, your past Bank statements can be found under “Documents”. First select the account, then select “Documents”. The eStatement tab no longer exists in our new Online Banking system. Up to 18 months of statements will still be available.
Q: Why are my transactions intermingled in the "Transactions" dashboard of Mobile Banking and the "Activity" Card of Online Banking?
These dashboard cards are showing transactions that have occurred in the last 48 hours for ALL of the accounts you have access to. If you only want to see transactions for a specific account, go to the accounts dashboard card and select transactions. NOTE: If you don’t want to see a snapshot view of all recent transactions, simply remove that card from your dashboard view.
Yes. Go to “Accounts”, then click the “+” in the upper right hand corner. Select “Connect an Institution”. Search for the name of the institution or credit card.
Very Important: You will need your Username and Password for the institution or credit card you want to connect with.
Please note: Not every financial institution and credit card provider allows you to view your information in a different app or Online Banking site. If you cannot find your bank or credit card provider in the list when you search, that provider does not allow account aggregation.
Q: Can I make a payment in Mobile and Online Banking to my other bank accounts and my First Dakota Mastercard?
Payments to external bank accounts and credit cards are not possible from our Mobile and Online Banking system based on how “account aggregation” works. However, you can use our Bill Pay to make a payment on your credit card OR use our “External Transfer” option to transfer funds between your other accounts and your First Dakota accounts.
**To make a payment on your First Dakota Mastercard, use Bill Payment or log in to https://firstdakota.myapexcard.com.
The only difference you will notice is when you click the Login button from our website, you will need to choose “Cash Management Banking” from the drop-down menu. This will take you to the Online Banking system you are accustomed to using.
