How CardGuard Works

Once you have enrolled in CardGuard (via Visa Purchase Alerts), you decide how and when you receive alerts. If you receive an alert about a transaction you believe is fraudulent, call the Customer Service number on the back of your card to block the card from further use and/or obtain a new card number. You may also use our mobile app card controls to block your card before calling the number on the back of your card to obtain a new card and card number. 

If you receive an alert regarding a purchase you know is legitimate, no action is necessary.

Enrolling in CardGuard is Easy

To complete enrollment, you will need the first nine digits of your credit/debit card number to confirm the card's eligibility. Later, you will need your full card number, expiration date and security code to complete your registration and trigger set-up.

After your card is confirmed, you will be prompted to create an account with Visa Purchase Alerts where you will add your email address. Next, you will go to your profile to set criteria for alert triggers and add your phone number to receive text alerts. You can set your account to send notifications through email, text or both methods.
