I've been a globe trotter for years. I've never had a bank block access to my accounts.

Well I must confess, I have noticed on TVF that the US banks do seem to a lot more troublesome than their UK counterparts.

 

I've been living in various locations around the world, including China ever since the advent of on-line banking and never had any adverse issues.

It's not only some US banks that are geoblock; in my experience Capital One blocks whereas Bank of America doesn't. Even the not so wonderful AT&T sometimes needs a VPN to log in. What I find strange are the regular US businesses that prohibit access from non-US IP addresses. The latest one I have discovered is Home Depot!

That is one that I find pissing me off constantly when trying to plan some upgrades to my place in the US from the beach here. 
 

Enough to get me to get my phone-home VPN up and running reliably... so I guess I can thank them.  Now signing up for VOIP accounts or new credit cards or whatever is nice and easy.  I wonder if the “bad guys” ever thought of that...
