You decide whether you want to allow online or in-store purchases, and manage ATM transactions. You can even restrict foreign transactions. Enable real time anotifications for any category of transactions.

A Word of Advice

The controls and settings in WESTconsin’s Card Control are designed to prevent others from using your card without your authorization, but that same functionality could prevent you from using your card if you're not careful. To get started we recommend that you begin with enabling anotifications so that you'll know immediately whenever your card is used – and where, and for how much. Then, one at a time, try setting the various controls and preferences until you find what works best for you. If your card ever doesn't work when you think it should, turn off all controls and try your transaction again.
