LONDON — HSBC reportedly suffered its second IT glitch in two days on Monday, as some customers in the UK complained they were unable to log on to their online banking accounts.

Some customers complained they were getting an error message when trying to access their online and mobile banking accounts. HSBC said it had resolved the problem, which lasted approximately half an hour. 

In a similar problem on Friday, some customers took to Twitter to complain they were unable to log on to online and mobile banking accounts. 

Friday’s glitch lasted approximately 45 minutes, after which the bank said the issue had been resolved and apologised for the inconvenience caused. It was unclear what had caused the problem.

HSBC said, “We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused to customers. This was caused by a temporary technical issue that’s now resolved.”
