Enable Card for Use
Is your debit card lost or stolen? Disable your debit card within seconds to avoid any new transactions or purchases from occurring. If you find your debit card, you can re-enable it and begin using it immediately.
To prevent overspending, set a transaction limit to ensure you stay on budget. This also is a great way to alleviate fraudulent charges or regulate spending on other cards such as a card your child may be using.
Choose transaction types to prevent purchases not made by you. Rarely shop online? Disable the eCommerce transaction type.
Before heading out on vacation, set up custom regions to ensure your card can be used without trouble. You can also block international transactions if you are staying within the country.
Be in the know by customizing your transaction alerts. Receive alerts with every purchase made or just for specific transaction types.
Customize your security based on where you shop. Select merchant categories you use for everyday purchases like restaurants and gas stations, disable categories like travel until needed.
