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.

Here’s a quick look at what you’ll find in this guide to using your Capital One login:

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.

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.
