Fraudsters Will Strike, Brella™ Has You Covered!

Brella Debit Card Security

In today’s fast-paced world, debit cards are a must for paying when on the go. At Peoples State Bank, we understand that another must is keeping your card safe from fraudsters. The Brella™ app can help you do just that! The next generation of the Shazam Bolt$ app, Brella is a free mobile option that helps you monitor activity on your debit card. Consider the following scenario of how this app is protecting cardholders everywhere:

A cardholder with the Brella app received a fraud alert about his personal checking account. Thanks to the Brella alert, he was able to quickly log in to the app and turn his card off. After that first alert, the next two fraudulent attempts were declined saving him time and frustration.

Later, another cardholder from the same financial institution received a fraud alert from Brella about her card prompting the financial institution to check on all their cardholders’ cards.

It’s a good thing they did as a wave of fraud attempts on their cardholders’ debit cards was starting, and coming on strong.

Fortunately, thanks to Brella and the quick action by the financial institution, minimal cardholder losses occurred. And, what would have been a large headache was reduced to a brief inconvenience.

Not only does Brella alert cardholders to potential fraud, alerts can also be set for transaction types and dollar amounts. Cards can be turned on and off for security and balances can be checked so cardholders always know where they stand with their funds. If a cardholder is away from home, Brella offers a convenient ATM locator. Best of all, globe-trotting cardholders can submit travel notices right from the app to ensure their cards work on the next adventure. 

The bottom line is Brella is saving people money and providing peace of mind.
