Turning Your Debit Card On/Off - Use the First National Bank in Staunton mobile app to turn your debit card on or off. This feature lets you take control of your First National Bank Visa® Debit Card and protect against unauthorized use. If you have misplaced your card, turn it to the OFF position. If you find it, and feel your account has not been jeopardized, turn it back ON and continue to use your card. If you use your card infrequently, or are traveling without your card, turn it OFF. Then turn it on when you are ready to use. You are in control. Your mobile app shows you whether your card is ON or OFF!
Turning your card OFF only impacts future debit card (point of sale and ATM) transactions. Any previously authorized transactions will be paid, and any recurring transactions you had previously set up will still occur. Turning your card OFF will not affect your checks, mobile or internet transfers, bill payments, or any other type of transactions in your account(s).*
If you have any questions concerning this mobile app feature, please contact us.
*In all situations it is your responsibility to review activity in your accounts for propriety and to assure that any scheduled or recurring transactions occur when your card is OFF.
