The debit card is managed in the app or desktop account, and I’ve got to say: the card controls are superb compared to the high street banking apps. There is a dedicated section for card settings and information related to the card. Here, you can add the card to your Apple Pay, Fitbit, Garmin Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay wallet, cancel and replace the card, get a PIN reminder, and view limits for transactions, ATM withdrawals and mobile wallet payments.
If you lose your card but are not sure whether it’s stolen, lost or misplaced, you can simply lock it via a toggle in the app and unlock it if you found it down your sofa. In many other banks, you can only cancel a card, then wait some days to receive a new one by post.
Moreover, the Starling app gives you options to lock specific types of transactions like card machine or online payments, ATM withdrawals, mobile wallet payments, swipe card and even gambling payments.
