Q. How is Mobile Banking different than Online Banking?

Q. What does it mean when my card is locked with SecureSwipe?
A. Once enrolled from the Mobile Banking app you will be able to lock your card making it inactive and one-time debit transactions will be declined at the merchant. Recurring debit card transactions, such as a gym membership, will be processed without inconvenience even if the card is in locked status.
Payments will be accepted on locked cards only if the transaction is flagged by the merchant as recurring. In some cases, the first in a series of recurring payments may fail because it is seen as a one-time payment. The card will need to be unlocked to perform the transaction. Some local businesses may not currently send recurrence information with automated debits. SecureSwipe users are reminded to check their accounts frequently to ensure all bills are paid on time and, if not, to make different payment arrangements for those merchants.
Q. How do I unlock my debit card with SecureSwipe?
A. To unlock your card prior to making a purchase, click the SecureSwipe icon on the login page of the Mobile Banking App. Enter your 4-digit passcode chosen at enrollment then choose the card you wish to unlock.
