Attention: open in a new window. Print

First Option launched “Easy App” mobile banking back in June 2015. Since then, thousands of members have registered and use it for their everyday banking.

Over the last few months, the First Option team has been working on a new banking app to keep up with members’ expectations.

How to Register

Current users need to make the switch soon, as Easy App Gen1 will be turned off.

  • Apple/iOS users: Simply update Easy App in the App Store. On first use you must re-register with your Internet Banking (IB) Member Login and NetCode.
  • Android users: Simply update Easy App in Google Play. On first use you must re-register with your IB Member Login and NetCode.
  • New users: If you did not install Gen1, download “First Option Easy App” from the App Store or Google Play. You must also log in to IB at least once before registering.
