Card Controls

Card Controls

Peoples Bank's Card Controls App enhances your financial security by defining when, where, and how your personal or business debit card(s) can be used. After a one-time download of this companion app, you can monitor your personal finances, set parental controls for younger cardholders, or limit expenses by business employees. Additional features include: 

  • Real-time alerts: Stay informed with alerts for when your card is used  
  • Threshold limits: Set a spending limit for transactions on your card. When the dollar limit is exceeded, the transaction will be declined.
  • Merchant categories: Select from which merchants your card can be used, such as all merchants except Entertainment or Department.
  • Location: Designate up to three geographic regions where your card can be used and/or block international transactions.
  • On/Off controls: Safeguard your cards by turning them "off" if they are misplaced or stolen and back "on" when you are ready to use them. When the card is turned off only previously set-up recurring payments will be accepted.
  • Transaction types – You can choose to allow only certain types of transactions, such as in-store, online, ATM, or mail/phone order.
