Very Simple and Easy To Use
The app is very basic with a simple to use and navigate interface. The layout looks a bit plain and dated, but if you just want to get things done, then there’s no need for it to look fancy. I haven’t used/tested every function such as mobile check deposit, but overall the app does what it’s designed to do.

Do not use !! 12 year customer closing my account
DO NOT USE THIS APP OR THEM FOR BANKING.. -$10/month service charge -Mobile deposit is inconsistent -Zelle takes a day to show up -non-cash Transactions take 1-3 days to post I don’t know of any good reason to use Cathay Bank unless you need to. I have been a customer since college and it’s over 10 years now and this past incident is the final straw. The app mobile deposited a check twice without my control (I only submitted once in the morning, second time was at 10PM). As a result, I got charged a returned check fee and another fee. They still have yet to respond to me about how that’s happened. Why would anyone deposit a check twice unless they’re asking for trouble ? I’m closing my account after this. Just fees on fees and their mobile app runs at dial-up speed. Just save yourself trouble go bank with someone else.

Interface is not intuitive
Having used 2/3 other banking apps, I think Cathay can be better. Layout is sort of old and feels basic.

App/online banking needs improvement
Since Cathay Bank changed the online banking or app (maybe last year?), the balances are NOT accurate. I should be able to see what my actual balance is so that I don’t overdraw on my account. But sometimes the App or online banking shows I have a negative balance when I know I have a positive balance. No point in having an app or online banking when the data is not accurate.

Cannot sign up to my account or register
I have lived in the United States for decades, and this is the first time I have encountered this situation. For banks like Chase Bank, PNC Bank or more, as long as you open an account, you can directly log in to your bank platform to register on your phone ,Online banking and mobile banking, only Cathay Bank’s platform cannot operate and give any options. I really regret opening an account with Cathay Bank. I don’t even know how much money is in my account.

Cathay Bank should be investigated by the Federal Reserve.
Cathay Bank does not immediately or timely post debits/credits to your account. They wait literally 3 or more days before any transactions from that day are posted to your account. They also don’t have Apple Pay for iPhone. Cathay Bank is one of the worst banks in the U.S. I’d go as far as saying it’s the worst banking institution in the U.S. This app is getting bad reviews because the bank is abhorrent. The app should be updated with debits/credits immediately.

Worst Terrible Banking App
Both app, web site, and the backend services are a joke. If you are looking to do online banking with Cathay bank, forget it. 1. No ending balance per transaction 2. Online statement? Why make it so hard to see my monthly online statement? 3. No pending transaction? Hello? Are you really a bank? Bring me back the old crapy old app. It has out of dated user interface but at least I can do online banking normally. I had seen bad online banking app but this is the WORST!

The account activities are no up to day
The App is showing up the activities for last year. For the year of 2021, the activities started from April 5. Also the activities is few days behind. Other features are better than the old App.

Secure Message
The option to use Secure Message is useless. Even after you log into your profile with your credentials the bank will not provide requests for proof of bill pay check payments. Your said in your reply to call the customer service number. The point is to use this option to avoid calling. This is the worst experience.

Buggy mobile deposit
As of October 2022, the mobile deposit feature is broken. After taking the front and back picture of my check, the app would auto jump back to the login screen. I had retried 4 times before it finally snapped out of the bug. This is unacceptable.

My feedback
The Bill Pay interface is horrible. It’s short and customer can only see a few payees at a time. The activities page is also very bad, it purposely doesn’t show the balance right after each transaction. It looks like Cathay is tying to hide something from customers.

Password issue
I used a iPhone, but the app keep asking for password even after I enable face recognition. Also it’s not user friendly and seem to lack function compared to other bigger bank like chase Citi and more

Mobile deposit
It takes too much time to do mobile deposit, it won’t tell you what is the problem, so we just have to do it over and over in the dark!

Bad app
I don’t like the design of this app. I do not see the detail of my loan amount. It always shows 0. Verifying 2 small deposits is not working well. For example, $0.04 needs to inputted as 04. How about $0.70. I cannot figure it out. Bad design.

Some of the feature of mobile banking not working correctly. Like if I made a principle payment, and the next day it will processed as next month regular payment. I called to the bank that said they can’t change it.

My least favorite banking app
This is the worst of the finance apps on my phone. Face ID is spotty and only works sometimes. This app holds the record for attempts “unable to process at this time,” an inconvenient error for a banking app. When it does work, it does what it’s SUPPOSED to do.

Poorest bank app I’ve ever used
For more than a month the mobile deposit has been inoperable. Secure messages about that issue and the lack of mailed statements have repeatedly gone unanswered. It’s difficult to imagine a poorer app than the one at Cathay Bank.
