FAQs — General
- What information do you collect from my mobile device, and how is it used?
- Is mobile banking available to former Orchard Bank®, Household Bank®, and other former HSBC Bank Nevada N.A. credit card?
Yes, you can use Capital One Mobile as soon as you set up an Online Banking account. Visit our enrollment page.
- Is there a difference signing in using my mobile device versus my laptop or desktop?
Yes. Our mobile website and mobile apps are custom-built and optimized for convenient, secure account management on the go. You can manage your account many ways with your mobile device and online.
In some cases, how you sign in affects the actions available to you. For example, you can use your mobile device to check balances and recent activity and schedule or make payments, but you can't change your contact information or reset your name or password. For security reasons, you'd need to take these actions online using a laptop or desktop computer.
