How do I enroll?

When I sign up on the CardNav app, does it start immediately or is there an overnight process before it starts working?
The CardNav app starts immediately.
How do I set controls and alerts?
CardNav enables you to set controls and alerts to limit fraud. These are set, and can vary, for each card registered and can be changed under the “Control Preferences” and “Alert Preferences” tab.
What is the difference between Card On/Off and other transaction sub-controls?
Card On/Off allows you to quickly disable or enable the card as a whole. The sub-controls allow you to set controls based on transactions you don’t often perform.
For recent transactions, how many can be displayed? How far back does it go?
The app shows the last 50 transactions or the last 3 months of transactions.
Are balances shown in real-time?
The balances are obtained in real-time when the request is made.
If I have two cards registered can I transfer funds from Card 1 to Card 2?
Only Intra-Card transfers are available in CardNav. For example, if Card 1 has two linked accounts, funds can be transferred from Account 1 to Account 2 on Card 1, but not from Account 1 on Card 1 to Account 1 on Card 2.
I received a push notification but don't know why.
Under the “Recent Transactions” tab find and tap the transaction you received the push notification. The “Transaction Details” screen will show the pertinent details of the transaction and by tapping on the dollar amount (top right) the screen will show what alert and controls settings would have triggered a notification.
