IP Address Filters: These allow for your bank's user logins only from specified locations via an IP address white-list.

  • An Asterisk (*) may be used as a wild card to accept a range of IP addresses. 
    • For Example:
      • If you white-list 208.1.1.*
      • No matter what the last octet is, logins will be allowed for any IP address that begins with 208.1.1.*
  • A Dash (-) may be used to accept a more specific range of IP addresses.
    • For Example:
      • A range of denotes that logins will be allowed for IP addresses through

If you accidentally lock out your location by mistake, please contact our support department for assistance.

  • Click on their Username in the Users section.
  • Check the Exempt From IP Address Filters box.
  • This user will then be allowed to log into their PrecisionLender account from any IP address, regardless of your filter settings.
