How do transaction alerts work?
These alerts will show you when and where the transaction was made, the amount spent, and which card was used. If a transaction is made in a foreign currency, the alert will show you the equivalent in GBP. You can customise which cards you receive alerts for, and set a limit if you only want to be notified for transactions above a certain amount.
Stay safe from fraud
By setting up transaction alerts, you can help make sure your money and cards are better protected from fraud. If you receive an alert but haven’t used your card, get in touch with us straightaway on 0345 08 08 500.
