CardValet-Take Control of Your WUHEFCU Debit Card Usage

Take Control of Your WUHEFCU Debit Card Usage With CardValet®


WUHEFCU debit card holders now have the ability to actively manage their debit card usage by defining when, where and how their card is used. You can remotely monitor and control debit card transactions, review usage for your children and safeguard against fraud.

 


CardValet lets you customize your experience by choosing from a variety of options:

Card On/Off Setting
• When the card is “on,” transactions are allowed in accordance with your usage control settings
• When the card is “off,” no purchases or withdrawals are approved until the card is subsequently turned back “on.” This control can be used to disable a lost or stolen card


Card Usage Controls
• Spending limits can be established to allow transactions up to a certain dollar value and decline transactions when amounts exceed pre-defined thresholds
• Transactions can be monitored or controlled for specific merchant categories such as gas, hotel, travel, restaurants and groceries


Location-Based Controls
• The My Location control can restrict transactions to merchants located within a certain range of your location (using the phone’s GPS); transactions requested outside of the specified range can be declined
• The My Region control uses city, state, country or zip code on an expandable interactive map; transactions requested by merchants outside of a specific region can be declined.


Fraud Protection
Turning your debit card off when you’re not using it help safeguard against fraud. When your card is “off,” no withdrawals or purchases will be approved.  Transaction controls that allow your debit card to work only in specific locations or geographic areas, add another layer of protection.


Alerts
Alerts can also be set up to inform you of specific types of transactions. CardValet can send an alert when a card is used, when a transaction is approved and exceeds any of the permitted use policies, or when a card transaction has been attempted but is declined. The alert is sent in real time, immediately after the transaction has taken place or has been declined.


Additional Capabilities
In addition to control and alert features, CardValet enables you to conduct card-related mobile transactions wherever you are, any time of the day. Supported transactions include:
• Real-time balance inquiries
• Locating ATMs


Key Benefits For Debit Cardholders
• You can actively manage your money and take charge of your card usage
• Parents can remotely control and monitor their children’s spend
• All cardholders can monitor transactions to protect their accounts
