Managing your debit card

Control your card on the go

You can control how and where your card is used through the ‘Cards’ section in our app1. Set limits on payments online or abroad and cash withdrawals, freeze your card temporarily if you’ve misplaced it, report it lost or stolen, view your PIN and more.

How to view the ‘Cards’ section

  1. Log in to your Barclays app
  2. Tap on ‘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 approved2.
