Opening account for the first time and SBI YONO

New internet banking users might receive a message indicating “you are on view rights.” This means the account is limited to viewing only. However, SBI bank provides simple online and offline methods to enable full transaction rights.

It can be done through SBI YONO too. But this message does not come if you choose full rights while activating or registering YONO for the first time. We have seen though you can get the full transaction right, the profile password setting is not given an option in YONO registration.

To get your profile password settings, you may have to login to the bank’s official website and access it. The system automatically prompts you to set the profile password in the first login.
