The mobile wallet included with most smartphones is a great tool to make everyday purchases a breeze and give you peace of mind! Here are a few reasons why you should add your debit and credit cards to your mobile wallet.
1. Your mobile wallet is always with you
With your debit or credit cards in your mobile wallet, leaving your card at home or in the car is no longer a problem! As long as you have your phone, you can make purchases at any retailers that accept contactless payments.
2. Added security
When you add your debit or credit cards to your mobile wallet, you’re adding another layer of protection to your accounts. Your 16-digit credit or debit card number is replaced with a device account number called a token that is securely stored on your device. Only your token is shared with the merchant, which helps keep your private information secure.
3. More convenience
Easy to set up, easy to use and easy to enjoy! Pay for the things you need safely and the things you want quickly — online or in stores. Use your phone’s passcode, fingerprint or face ID to unlock your mobile wallet, hold your phone over the contactless reader and be on your way!
4. No more lost cards
Having your debit or credit card in your mobile wallet gives you peace of mind if you lose your card. Because your unique token is stored on your phone, you can still make the purchases that you need even if you’ve reported it lost or stolen. If your physical GECU credit or debit card is lost or stolen, please notify us immediately by calling 1.800.810.2252. We will cancel your card and issue you a new card.
5. Easier online purchases
Empty your online shopping cart in a breeze with your mobile wallet! No need to type your card information any more — just use the cards on your mobile wallet to make the payment!
