When your card is “on” transactions are allowed in accordance with your usage control settings. When your card is “off” no purchases or withdrawals are approved until your card is turned back “on”. You may take advantage of this feature to disable a lost or stolen card.
The “My Location” control can restrict your Bank of Fincastle debit card transactions to merchants located within a certain range of your location. (using the primary phone’s GPS)
CardValet can send a real-time alert when your card is used, when a transaction is approved and exceeds any of your permitted use settings, or when a card transaction has been attempted but declined.
CardValet also enables cardholders to conduct limited card-related transactions wherever they are, any time of the day, including balance inquiries and locating ATMs.
