It reads: "It's us, not you. Sorry.

"Something's not right with our system – please try again later or call customer services on 03 456 100 100 and quote error code FD890T."

Complaining to the bank, one customer said: "Hi First Direct are you having tech issues? Can’t log on via app or online banking."

A third tweeted: "Definitely an issue with the app – something went wrong message even after restarting and doesn’t look like I’m the only one."
