Protect yourself. Debit card controls and alerts give you peace of mind when you shop.

Get Started


With our debit card Controls and Alerts settings, you can choose how and when your card is used — or receive alerts every time an unusual purchase is made. Simply adjust your settings in our Consumer Mobile Banking app1. Protect yourself and use your card with confidence.

Benefits of Controls and Alerts

Protect yourself against fraud by customizing your controls and alerts to match your typical behavior. For example:

  • Receive alerts about purchases over a set dollar amount.
  • Set spending region controls that you can adjust when you go on vacation. Learn how to adjust your travel controls.
  • Limit card usage to only certain types of transactions (In-Store, Auto Pay, etc.)
  • If you think you may have lost your card, you can turn it off in seconds.

Prevent Debit Card Fraud

Debit card fraud most commonly happens when a thief uses your card number without your authorization. Controls and alerts keep you aware of unauthorized purchases.

We are also monitoring your account for suspicious activity. If we flag a purchase as unusual, we may contact you to verify the transaction. When we call, we will NEVER ask you to provide the following about your debit card: 

  • PIN
  • Expiration Date
  • 3-digit code on the back of your card
