  • Control and Alert Options
    • On/Off: Using your control preferences, you can turn your card on or off within seconds.
      • This is an especially helpful tool to have in case you were to misplace or lose your card.
      • You can also set up on/off alerts to be notified when your card is turned on or off, or if transactions are attempted while the card is turned off.
    • Location: Using your control preferences, you can set multiple location control policies for each card. Some of the options include:
      • My Location — Denial is recommended when your phone location is different than the merchant location where the in-store transaction is being attempted
      • My Regions — Denial is recommended when a transaction occurs outside of an area that you have defined (a region on a map around a city or postal code)
      • Block International — Denial is recommended when a transaction occurs outside the U.S.
      • You can also set up multiple alert policies for each of your cards to alert you when any of these same things are attempted.
    • Transaction/Merchant Type: You can also set controls to deny specific transactions or merchant types. For example:
      • Transaction types — instore-transactions, auto pay transactions, ATM transactions
      • Specific merchant types — department stores, gas stations, restaurants, etc.
      • If you don't feel the need to set controls to block any specific transaction or merchant types, you can still set up alerts to be notified when transactions of any specific type are made as well
