Protect Yourself from Debit Card Fraud with the CardValet® Card Management App

Your spending habits may have changed dramatically in recent months with social distancing, reduced travel, and a changing retail environment now the “new normal.” Are you conducting fewer in-store and in‑person transactions? Are your online purchases rising? Regardless of your spending habits and preferences, there’s little doubt that fraud continues to grow – and you remain on-guard.

It’s never been more important: you need safe and convenient card management capabilities – whenever and wherever you transact.

That’s why we want to tell you about the value of CardValet, a card control app that allows you to protect your Field & Main debit card accounts, manage your money, and take charge of your card usage. CardValet gives you increased peace-of-mind that will help you fight debit card fraud by letting you:

•Turn your card “on” or “off” — keep your card “on” to make a purchase, or turn it “off” if it’s misplaced or stolen
•Receive real-time alerts for your card transactions
•Monitor and control your card usage

We should also mention that it is free! To enroll, simply download the application from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store to your mobile device or tablet and have your cardholder information ready to enter.

“The CardValet app is great! I have my preferences set so that I get a notification on my phone each time my debit card is used. If it is ever used for something that I do not recognize, I can immediately go into the app and turn my debit card off while I investigate the transaction. The ability to turn the card off and back on at any time whether the bank is open or not is a huge win!” – Michelle Hope, Retail Operations Officer, VP
