How do I control online and in-store purchases in my Barclays app?

Want to keep your spending under control? The Barclays app lets you stop your debit card being used for buying things online, over the phone or by mail order.

You can use the app to decide whether you want your card to be used for remote purchases, which are transactions where your card isn’t physically present. Those include things you buy online, by mail order and over the phone.

To switch off remote purchases

  • Log in to your app
  • Under ‘Quick links’ on your home screen, tap ‘Cards’
  • Select your debit card
  • Tap ‘Remote purchases’
  • Switch off remote purchases
