A profile password for SBI YONO or SBI Internet banking is an additional layer of protection. This password is required every time you change or update details in the profile section.
These could be adding third-party beneficiaries, changing mobile numbers, changing login passwords, defining the limit for demand draft purchases, etc.

In the event that you are unable to recall the profile password, your net banking may cease to work. You may be in a position where you are unable to visit the bank. At that moment, knowing some basics of SBI YONO would be helpful.

Now, let’s understand a little bit about SBI Internet banking. How does it function, and how do we access it? Let’s find out.
The State Bank of India has its Internet banking on two platforms. One is mobile-based, which is known as SBI YONO. The other one is a web-based internet banking where the official site URL is https://www.onlinesbi.com
On both platforms, you will get the option to reset the profile password, but there is a slight difference between them.
On the mobile-based YONO application, you can reset your profile password through 2 options:
- Reset through the hint question you chose earlier as a password recovery mechanism.
- Use an ATM debit card to reset your SBI YONO profile password.
On the web-based SBI Internet banking platform, you will get the following 3 options:
- Reset through the hint question.
- Reset through your bank.
- Reset by using ATM card credentials.
It is now clear that we have to approach it in a slightly different way between SBI YONO and web-based SBI Internet banking. Now let’s see how to proceed and reset the password on both platforms.
Resetting SBI YONO Profile Password
Login to SBI YONO and go to the service request menu. Under the service request menu, you will see a list of options, and a profile password reset is one of them.
- See the fourth option under security.
- Click on that, and the system will guide you to the next screen, where the forgot password link will be seen.
- Click on it and proceed. Now you will see 2 options to go forward.
- Profile password reset with a security question (hint question) and ATM card.
- If you remember the hint question, select it and proceed with password resetting.
- If you don’t, select the profile password reset with an ATM card. Provide the last 6 digits of the card, punch the ATM PIN, and complete the transaction.
So, either you need to remember the answer to the security question (hint question), which is case-sensitive, or you need to have an active ATM card.
If you remember the answer or you have an active SBI ATM card, that’s great. You could easily manage your profile password.
Otherwise, you will not be able to reset your profile password in the mobile application SBI YONO.
