You must set a high-security password (OTP) for your State Bank of India account if you want to get a notification on your phone or by email if a transaction occurs on your SBI account. You will get an OTP for each transaction to validate it. This OTP-based password adds another layer of security to your account, ensuring a high level of security. With the OTP-based authentication for added security, SBI allows online banking more secure. The log-in password is a mode to keep the account secure, however OTP serves as a "second-factor password" to ensure the account's security. If you do not receive the SBI OTP for every transaction via SMS, you can need to reset your high-security password by signing in to your SBI net banking account. SBI also allows its customers to make OTP-based cash withdrawal for a minimum amount of Rs 10,000. Let's look at how to generate a high-security password (OTP) via SBI net banking.
