This means that all transactions (except for reoccurring) will be declined. When ready to make a purchase simply turn the card bank on. It is that easy. Now you have the ultimate control to combat fraud.
After you become comfortable with the on/off function you can start selectively setting controls and alters by channel (in-store, online, mobile, ATM, etc.).

To select the card(s) you wish to manage, go to Settings and choose Manage Cards. Then uncheck the card or cards you don't want to manage. Once a card is unmanaged, controls and alerts cannot be set for that card.
