View information on the FNB Namibia Website, including info on accessibility and Online Banking.
The First National Bank of Namibia website is designed to be accessible via all main Web browsers and browsing devices.
We strongly recommend that you use the latest version of your preferred browser. The most up-to-date version of your preferred browser is normally available as a free download from the relevant browser manufacturer's website.
The latest versions of browsers are more secure than older versions, which is particularly important when doing your banking via the Internet.
Most Windows based PCs are preinstalled with Microsoft Internet Explorer, therefore it is the most commonly used browser. Because of this, Internet Explorer is the browser most attacked by viruses and spyware.
If you use Internet Explorer it is particularly important to run a virus scanner regularly and keep it updated with the latest security patches from Microsoft.
Other good browsers for Windows PCs, such as Opera and Mozilla Firefox, are available free of charge.

To prevent this make sure that Internet Explorer has the following settings:
