Credit Card Control

Description

Disable/Enable Credit Card

Turn your credit card off to block new credit card purchases plus ATM cash advances while still allowing recurring transactions to continue.

When the toggle is “green”, the card is active and will work as usual. When this is disabled, all transactions will be declined  (recurring transactions may go be accepted)

Allowed transactions: International

When “checked”, international transactions are enabled.

For example, if you are traveling abroad, the recommendation is to have this feature activated (checked). Some internet transactions are considered as international, and may be affected if this is unchecked

Allowed transactions: Internet

When “checked”, internet transactions are enabled.

Limit per transaction ($)

Set a limit per credit card transaction. If you input an amount in this section, for example $100, then any transaction above this amount will be declined.
