US Bank (PNC) New Online Security
« on: December 28, 2018, 05:15:57 PM »

Well, it finally happened.  I am surprised it lasted this long.  Went to access my account at PNC Bank in the USA and access was denied.  Said access not allowed from my Thai Server, 3BB!  Am happy that I have a VPN so I can get to my bank accounts using a 'location' in the US.


I wonder how many other sites are going to do the same.  I know the US Social Security Administration will not allow access thru 3BB, have to use my VPN.

Frank, are you sure it is the bank and social security who is blocking access?  Did you check 3BB about this?  Anyone else having the same problem?

Rex, I think you are half right.  Just tried PNC again and this time it went through and I gained access to the site.


BUT, using 3BB for the past 2 years, I have not been able to access Social Security's site.  I had been able to access through True, but it is so much easier just to go directly to my VPN.


I guess I was playing 'Chicken Little' and the 'sky is falling' with PNC.


So all is back to normal.

I also have 3bb and have always had to use a VPN to access Social Security. I also need a VPN to access my account with the VA.
 
Frank, try and access Homedepot.com without a VPN. I can't.

I know that one, Kowpot.  Same with Kohl's and probably others.

I can't access the Home Depot site without a VPN either. Why is that?

I have to use my VPN to access Aetna Medicare.  If I don't it goes into Never, Never Land!
