CardNav Debit Card App

Have full control over your Austin FCU Debit Card usage in a way you’ve never had before:

  • Manage how, when and where your cards are used—on your own terms. CardNav enables you to set controls regarding the transaction types, geographic rules, and the merchant types where your card can be used.
  • Turn any card on, or off—in seconds. It’s as simple as a toggle. Perfect for safety, security… and those scary moments when you’re not quite sure where your card might be.
  • Ensure you are the only person using your cards. GPS capabilities can either limit where your card is used—or assure it’s only able to be used when with you.
  • Turn your cards into active budget participants. Set dollar limits for transactions, and receive alerts when those limits are being reached. No more worrying about going over budget!
  • Stop fraudulent activity before it even happens with the alert feature of CardNav. Based on your preferences, CardNav can send you a real-time alert when your card is used outside of your chosen preferences, giving you the power to deny the transaction or turn your card off. Alert preferences can be set by:
    • Location – based on where the transaction occurs
    • Transaction type – based on type of transaction at point of sale
    • Merchant type – based on the type of merchant where the transaction occurred
    • Threshold – based on the threshold amount set by the user (i.e. – transactions over $500 receive an alert) Want to learn more, or begin using CardNav now? Contact your credit union to find out if they participate. If they do, download the app and begin using CardNav immediately.

Austin FCU cards come with daily processing limits and geographic restrictions to help protect you from fraud.

Most members have daily limits of $1000 for POS transactions and $500 for ATM transactions. In addition there is a "swipe limit" of 20 POS transactions, and 5 ATM transactions. (If your limits are different you would've received notice of that when you opened your account). We can always raise your limit for you if you need to spend a little more in a specific time frame. Give us a call or send us a message to have this done. 

If you plan to travel outside the US please let us know so that we can place a travel notification on your account to keep fraud monitoring from triggering due to the different location. If you’ll be taking a road trip (even in the US), it’s also a good idea to let us know since using your card in different cities on the same day can trigger a fraud case.

Travel Notifications

We utilize a service called FALCON to monitor member transactions for fraud. Each time you swipe your card, your transaction is assigned a fraud score based on amount, location, type of terminal, and many other factors. If that score is high enough, you will receive a call or text from our Fraud Department asking you to verify the transaction. In special cases, if the fraud score on a transaction is high enough, your card may be shut down immediately.

If your card has been restricted after-hours, please contact the Fraud Department directly to resolve the case. Unfortunately, if your card has fraud on it, we are unable to re-activate the card and will need to order you a new one. Please note FALCON will score transactions high if they are outside your geographical area, see Travel Notice for more info.

In order to receive Text Alerts Austin FCU must have your cell phone number on file. Log into No-line Banking in order to update your contact information.
