Fix bank error 187

Learn how to fix bank error 187.

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 OTP immediately after generating it.
  • If you have a new card, and you’re using a card reader to generate your OTP, disconnect and reconnect your account.
  • Use your own card when you generate an OTP from a card reader.
  • Add zero either at the beginning, middle, or end of the 8 numbers 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. Here are additional troubleshooting steps you can follow to fix online banking errors in QuickBooks Online.
