Do you see error 187 when you sign in to do online banking? Don't worry. This means your financial institution’s additional security requirements, such as security questions or one-time passcodes, weren't entered correctly.

To avoid this error, make sure to do the following:

  • Enter your one-time password immediately after generating it.
  • If you have a new card, and you’re using a card reader to generate your one-time password, disconnect and reconnect your account.
  • Use your own card when you generate an one-time password from a card reader.
  • Add a zero at the beginning, middle, or end of the 8-number passcode. Reach out to your financial institution to make sure of your passcode format.

If you still see error 187, go to your bank's website. Make sure your security questions and answers are correct.
