Restrict usage on a misplaced card
Ever misplaced your card and ordered a new one, only to find it at the bottom of your handbag or the back pocket of your jeans? With card controls, you can block your card when you’ve misplaced it, and unblock it when you find it.
Using card controls for a misplaced card prevents you from having to cancel your card and order a new one. After all, nobody likes having to change their stored card details.
Lock in added security
Card controls allow you to block different types of transactions to give you greater security over where your card is used. You can block international transactions for extra protection against online scams, restrict in-store and even block transactions at home while you’re overseas. Being able to control how your card is used at the touch of a button offers additional peace of mind.
Manage your spending
