After the catastrophic Wells Fargo outage and more recently the ING Australia outage, it now appears that Chase Bank’s servers are down.
Here are some reports:
Even maps don’t work for some:
We can at least access the bank’s website, so it is possible that only a group of users are facing this problem.
For his part, Chase hasn’t said anything about this reported outage — at least not via his official social media channels. Ironically, this outage comes on the day it emerged that JP Morgan, owner of Chase Bank, has started rolling out JPM Coin, America’s first bank-backed cryptocurrency.
Coming back to the outage, we are watching closely and will update the story as we have more newsworthy information on this. Until then, use the comments section below to let us know your current experience with Chase Bank.

The lack of frequent updates from the bank during this outage has people turning to their favorite “hacked” specs at times like these:
It’s been over 5 hours since this outage started and Chase has only offered one update. Of course, customers are not happy:
If you’re going by what Chase customer service told one customer (report below), things seem to be pretty messed up within the bank’s IT division at the moment.
I just called them on the phone after a legit 30 minutes and they said “sorry…the whole online system is down…we don’t have a specific timeframe for when it will be fixed” bruh they messed up baddddd
