The security of your funds is our upmost concern. That’s why we monitor your accounts for suspicious, international activity.

We’ll adjust your debit card settings so that you’re free to travel and access cash without disruption.

Keep your account more secure with your Visa Debit Card purchase alerts.

Visa Purchase Alerts on your debit card allow you to know where your money is going, so that you can stay on top of your account activity. After enrolling your card with Visa, you’ll get real-time email alerts whenever your purchase meets the criteria you select during enrollment. Here’s how to get started:

Follow 3 steps to enroll:

  1. Visit Visa.com/PurchaseAlerts
  2. Register your information. (For security purposes, you may be required to input a verification code.)
  3. Choose the notification triggers that match your needs, such as transactions exceeding a set dollar amount, or any international purchases.

Please note: Purchase alerts will be delivered via email directly from Visa. Alerts will be sent only for transactions that are completed through the Visa network; not all types of transactions will trigger an email alert.

Contact us about suspicious activity.

If you spot or receive a notification about suspicious activity on your account, please call us right away. During normal business hours, you may call your local branch or our Client Care Center at 800-324-9375. After hours, please call 800-472-3272.
