Consumer Controls

For consumers eager to digitally connect and manage their finances, Mastercard Consumer Controls gives them greater control over how and when their account is being used. Personalized account alerts and advanced controls not only help engage consumers, but can also address security concerns.

Issuers can empower consumers to increase usage and engagement while reducing costs; drive top-of-wallet status while helping to reduce fraud; and expand consumer utility and relationships while limiting financial risk.

Consumers can enjoy a convenient, easy-to-use application that enables them to customize account alerts and controls--providing them with greater control, flexibility and security in managing their account.

  • Offers innovative solutions that help families manage their household spending.
  • Meets consumer demand for online spending control and security by generating unique, limited-use virtual card numbers for added security.
  • Allows issuers to geographically limit acceptance of cards selectively at the account level and to send cardholders alerts when transactions occur outside of approved parameters.

* Virtual Card Numbers apply to Commercial solutions only.
