When Do You Use Your Signature and When Do You Use Your PIN?
Signature-based purchases are when you use your signature to authorize the purchase rather than entering your PIN. Signature-based purchases reduce your risk of identity theft, and they earn you bonus points! You will want to complete signature-based transactions whenever possible. To do this, choose "Credit" instead of "Debit" when prompted. You may have to press enter or cancel to bypass "Debit".
 
VISA Purchase Alerts
Now you can keep tabs on your account anytime, anywhere. Near real-time Purchase Alerts powered by Visa® help you reduce fraud and monitor your spending. With Purchase Alerts powered by Visa®, you can receive a text message or email shortly after your Visa debit card has been used. So if there is fraudulent activity, you'll be notified and can act quickly to stop the situation. And the service is available free for Federated Employees Credit Union Visa® debit cardholders.
