14. Recently, I had to format my smartphone that required all APPs to be downloaded and installed again. This can happen to you too when you do a factory reset or get a new handset. There was a problem when re-registering for SBI's services through the SB SECURE APP. Every time I gave my username and password through the freshly installed APP, it'd ask for my consent and a button to send an OTP. Numerous times that I tried, yielded in no SMS ever reaching my handset that runs the RMN i.e. the registered mobile number with the bank?

If you have deregistered the State Bank Secure App from your profile section, please de-register State Bank Secure OTP App from your mobile phone also by going to the settings tab provided within the App. For Availing State Bank Secure OTP services in future, you will have to register through app again.
