Debit Card Security

New fraud detection features: With our new Debit Card Management widget, you can keep your card safer than ever by signing up to receive security alerts for declined transactions and transactions over a dollar amount of your choice. You can also freeze your card to automatically decline purchases in case of loss, theft, or fraud. And as always, if a suspicious purchase is made using your card, we’ll alert you via text and ask you to verify that purchase. Learn more about how to customize your card security.
