COVID-19 brought a rise in cybercrimes. Fraudsters are increasingly taking advantage of the coronavirus pandemic to scam consumers and use stolen credit card numbers.


As a Horizon Bank debit cardholder, we recommend that you enroll in CardValet as a preventative measure and a way to keep control of your account at your fingertips.


What is CardValet?
CardValet is a mobile app. Once downloaded, you register your 16 digit Horizon Bank debit card(s). Real-time alerts keep you informed when your cards are used. It allows you to manage card usage through your mobile device, so you know when and how your debit card is being used for transactions.


What are the benefits of CardValet?

CardValet provides cardholders with easy, immediate access to account balances and transactions, and helps to reduce fraud by providing debit or credit cardholders with real-time alerts.

Protect your debit card through your mobile device by receiving alerts and defining when, where and how your card is used - with CardValet.


What are some real life examples of CardValet in action?

  1. If you misplace your card, you can use the app to turn it off, and then turn it back on when you find it! When your cards are "off," no withdrawals or purchases will be approved.
  2. Set transaction controls to allow your cards to work only in specific locations or geographic areas. This reduces the risk of cross-country fraudsters using your card.
  3. Set spending limits for general use or specify thresholds by merchant types, such as gas, groceries, or retail stores. Perfect for kids going off to college with your debit card!

Is there a cost for CardValet?

No! The CardValet app is free to download, and there’s no cost to register.


How do I get started?

Go to the App Store and download CardValet! You will need to set up a user name and password.
