The best way to fight fraud is to be in control. CardValet is a new way to do exactly that. Debit cards can make purchases easy; but if your card information falls into the wrong hands, your bank account can take a huge hit.

You can safeguard your card with CardValet, the mobile app that helps you protect your cards against theft and fraud by sending real-time alerts via phone to make sure your cards are used only by you.

Here’s what you can do with CardValet after it’s linked to your card.

1. Turn Your Card On And Off

If you’ve ever lost your debit card or had it taken from you, it is vital to quickly remedy the situation  The money in your account cannot be easily replaced! Your paycheck goes into your account and you have bills to take care of! With CardValet, you can turn your debit card off and on depending on your situation. This means you can use it and then deactivate it so that it cannot be used anywhere else until you turn it back on.  

2. Receive Alerts 

You can sign up to be notified in real-time with push notifications sent directly to your phone alerting you to pending purchases, denials, and other transactions. With CardValet, you can stay aware of where, when, and how your debit card is being used.

3. Set Geographic Limits 

This awesome feature helps protect you against fraud. CardValet uses your phone’s GPS tracking to limit the area and range where your debit card can be used. If you set the radius to 50 miles, then your card cannot be used to make a purchase beyond that radius. 

4. Set Spending Limits

If you share an account with your family or business, CardValet is a great way to help you stay on track with your budget. You can set a spending limit, where purchases of $100 cannot be made, but you can make a purchase below that amount. This is great for preventing fraudulent charges because they tend to make big purchases.

5. Set Shopping Restrictions

CardValet can be set to where you can limit the types of stores where your card can be used.  Transactions can either be reported or denied based on your preferred settings.
