Managing your debit card

Control your card on the go

Find out how to set limits for various payment types, and view your PIN. You can also temporarily freeze a mislaid card, or report it lost or stolen.

How to view the ‘Your cards’ section

  1. Log in to your Barclays app
  2. Tap on ‘Your cards’ in the home screen, just below your account balance

All the registered cards you have with us – both Barclays and Barclaycard – will be displayed at the top of the screen, and we’ll only show you the options available for each card. Simply select which one you want to make any changes to and follow the menu underneath. 

There are scenarios when your debit card settings may not be applied and a transaction will be approved1.
