Hardware and Software Requirements
Mobile Deposits Requirements
The mobile deposits application works with a variety of supported smartphones or similar devices and utilizes the built-in camera for the capture of check images. The list of supported devices follows:
- Apple smart devices with iOS version 5.0 or greater
- Android smart devices with 4.0 operating system or greater
NOTE: Devices must have a 2.0 megapixel (or greater) camera
Mobile Deposits Desktop Requirements
The Mobile Deposits program works with the standard device drivers used for everything from desktop flatbed scanners and all-in-one devices to multi-feed duplex scanners. Mobile Deposits supports multiple operating systems and browsers, as well as both the Java and ActiveX controls. Following are the currently supported environments:
Supported Operating Systems:
Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows7, or MAC OS 10.5
Internet Explorer 8+, Firefox 3.6+, Safari 5+
If the browser hangs with an hourglass, this is caused by security software on your network blocking the outbound HTTPS connection of the ActiveX control. The ActiveX software uses a direct HTTPS connection to upload your check images for processing, and will not use a configured proxy server. For most users, this does not cause any problems. However, some users may have a non-transparent proxy that prevents this direct connection, and the browser may hang with an hourglass. The Java version of Mobile Deposits properly uses your browsers proxy configuration. Refresh this web page and follow the
Use Java Version link.
If you receive an Upload Error message, please check your Java version by clicking on the coffee cup icon. Java versions prior to 1.5.0_08 have some known bugs that may prevent the upload from working. Upgrade your Java at www.java.com.
If either of these conditions exist, you will need to close Mobile Deposits and re-scan your deposit using the Java version (with up-to-date Java Virtual Machine software).
