This guide explains the hardware and software requirements needed to ensure an easy transition to the new digital banking system.
This document contains numerous tables that outline recommended and minimally supported hardware, software, and other features for Online and Mobile Apps.
The following table provides a key to the symbols used in this document:
|Recommended||Provides the ideal experience|
|Minimally supported||May create a slightly different appearance or behavior|
|Unsupported||Does not guarantee compatibility|
The computer you use must meet the following minimum requirements:
- Standard PC or Mac with at least a 1-GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM.
- Available browser updates applied for improved security that provide anti-virus and spyware
- Microsoft Windows Versions 7, 8 or 10, Microsoft® Windows® Vista Service Pack (SP) 2 and 3, or Mac OS X.
Note: Microsoft stopped supporting Windows XP and XP-compatible Internet Explorer (IE) in April 2014, including security updates. XP users who do not upgrade their operating systems should replace IE with Google Chrome TM for an up-to-date, secure Internet browser.
- Broadband internet connection such as Cable Modem, DSL (digital subscriber line), or ISDN (integrated services digital network).
Note:Satellite connections often have difficulty supporting encrypted, Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) applications. Since Union Bank online is HTTPS-encrypted for the safety of your financial information, some satellite cable connections may exhibit slow responses.
Desktop and laptop displays can be any height but must support at least a 1300-pixel width. Otherwise, you will need to scroll horizontally to see the entire Union Bank online user interface.

Third-party account management software
Note the following details about third-party account management software compatibility with our system:
- Microsoft Money: We are aware that some customers can export Account History successfully from Union Bank online to the most recent versions of Microsoft Money. However, Microsoft itself no longer supports this product; therefore, Union Bank cannot guarantee the reliability of exports. The use of Microsoft Money with Union Bank online data is solely at the user’s discretion.
