We’ve recently updated our card controls to help you take your security to the next level by giving you the flexibility to choose how you restrict or allow access to your WyHy debit card. Card controls can be accessed on Mobile and Home banking. Card controls are easy to use and can help you monitor spending, reduce fraud, and maintain your finances.

Control how, when, and where your debit card is used. Whether you’ve lost your card, or just want to set some limits, card controls make it easy to safeguard your debit card. Take total control, wherever you go! Keep your debit cards safe and receive instant notifications based on your preferences.

With Card Controls, You Can:

  • Turn your card on or off – This allows you to disable your card from use if it has been lost or stolen. When the card is turned off, all transactions, with the exception of recurring payments, will be declined.
  • Set transaction controls - You control where your card can be used. Select a region to use your debit card and block international usage.
  • Set spending limits - Set maximum amounts for debit card usage. Also, if you are a parent whose child just received their first debit card, this feature can help you teach your child money management tips while maintaining their budget.

  • Get real-time alerts when the card is used - Receive a real-time alert on your phone every time the card is used.
