Capital One is a newer bank with an actual living founder — which is a rarity. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a powerhouse. It’s now one of America’s 10 biggest banks, which means that it has a large number of customers who use its banking systems. If you’re one of those customers, you’ll find that logging in to your Capital One bank account is quick and easy. All you need to get started are your username and password.

How To Log In to Your Capital One Bank Account From a Computer

On the Capital One homepage, you’ll see a place to sign in to your account in the top right corner. Type your username and password into their respective fields.

You can also click the “Remember Me” option to make it easier to log in next time. However, if you’re using a shared computer or public Wi-Fi, avoid saving your login credentials as it can put your personal information at risk.

How To Log In to Your Capital One Bank Account From a Mobile Phone or Tablet

Having your banking information at your fingertips could help you become more proactive in taking charge of your finances. Thankfully, that’s easy to do if you have a Capital One account. You can download the app to both Apple and Android devices easily.

Once you’ve downloaded and opened the app, you’ll be prompted to log in. After you’ve logged in, you’ll have the ability to deposit checks, set automatic bill pay and see a history of transactions at any time.

You can also enable Touch ID or Face ID. If your device is compatible, you’ll be able to use your fingerprint of facial scan to log in to your account.

How To Retrieve a Forgotten Username or Password

Everyone loses their password or forgets their username at one point or another, but thankfully Capital One makes it easy to retrieve your information and stay safe. In order to verify your identity, you’ll have to provide Capital One with the following personal information:

  • Last name
  • Social Security number
  • Date of birth

Afterward, Capital One will send your information in a confirmation email to you.

How To Contact Capital One Customer Service

Capital One has several ways to contact its customer service. If you’re partial to phone calls, here’s the information you need:

If you’re calling internationally, you’ll need to first get in touch with an international operator. Tell them you’re calling the U.S. collect and provide this number: 804-934-2001. When asked for a name, just say you’re a Capital One customer.

What Are the Benefits of Online Banking?

Online banking has many benefits, but perhaps the largest one is the feeling of instant satisfaction you’ll get from using it. Instead of having to make an in-person visit to Capital One to confirm your balance or send physical checks for important bills out to the post office — where they may or may not reach their destination — you can breathe just a bit easier with online banking.

Using online banking, you can set up automatic bill pay, check your account balance and even schedule a transfer from your checking to your savings. That’s potentially hours of work — including travel time — if you’re doing physical banking. But with online banking, you can complete these tasks within minutes.
