Bank of America clients connected with their finances digitally more than 23.4 billion times in 2023. The 11% y-o-y rise to a record high reflects the growing use of digital logins and proactive alerts.

Specifically, BofA clients received more than 10.6 billion proactive digital alerts in 2023. That represents an increase of 12% year-over-year. Bank of America now has 57 million verified digital users. Among this customer segment, more than 35 million have opted to receive these alerts. The most common alerts last year offered insights into account balances, deposit available balances, and virtual debit card usage.

Bank of America active digital users rise to 46 million

Over the course of 2023, customers also logged into their accounts 12.8 billion times. This includes a record 3.3 billion logins in Q4, up 10% y-o-y. More clients are checking their finances more often. In turn, this is driving the number of active digital clients. Namely, those who have used digital in the last 90 days, to a record 46 million active users. That is up more than 2.2 million y-o-y.

77% of BofA Consumer and Small Business households actively use the bank’s digital platforms. The corresponding metrics for wealth management households and business clients are 84% and 75% respectively.

This allows our clients to more easily balance life and enjoy the moments that matter.”
