Every time I log into my Citibank account I get two pop us: Chat and Virtual Assistant. They take room on my browser, they slow it down, and they are simply a distraction. I have not found so far a way to turn them off.
I contacted Citibank customer service and received back a very vague response, which to me says they don’t know how to do it. Here is the full text (below), enjoy the typical corporate outsourced language. ;-) And if you use Citibank and know how to turn these annoying pop ups off please let me know in the comments.
Welcome to Citibank, my name is Ashis. We have received your message advising that you do not want the Chat and Virtual Assistant popping up. I value your relationship and it is a pleasure to hear from you today.
I understand from your message that you would like to disable Virtual Assistance popup window as it takes spaces on the page and slows down the browser.
Regarding this, I would suggest you simply click “No Thanks” it will not appear again for the session that you are on. To confirm depending on the web browser you are on there are different steps to put the Pop Blocker on.
