Not sure what is going on, but all of a sudden Card Valet has turned into a GPS/battery hog. For some reason it is using GPS radio almost non stop and is the top consumer of battery power on phone. As example, at this time, Card Valet was using GPS radio for 6 hours 22 minutes of last 6 hours 58 minutes of battery usage. I'm going to shut off its access to Location Services in Android, but something is very wrong here. This is on an LG V20 using most current version of stock Android and radio firmware.
This app saved me potentially thousands of dollars. It alerted me to unusual purchases in another city. I was able to turn my card off immediately, blocking the thieves out. Thank you CardValet. If I have one suggestion it would be the ability to add my own custom tags to purchases and be able to see a list of purchases filtered by tag.
Overall, it's great. They need to add fingerprint identification and two-way alerts so if you get alerted to something fraudulent you can respond to deny a transaction or shut the card down (even though you can turn it off in the settings, the controls in this app don't talk to the fraud monitoring department).
Flexible accountable and focused. This app allows me to see, review and be alerted to purchases immediately in real time. I can turn off my card when I'm not in my area and the possibilities are endless for a secure and budget friendly way to do finances
This app worked great when installed usually notifying me before I left the merchant. Then about a week ago it stopped sending notifications. No settings had changed on the app. The transactions are still listed on the app I am just not notified when they occur. Can you help?
Horrible App. Caused me to over draft my account by almost $500 and incur over $200 in over draft fees Currently it says I have a balance of $490 which I don't. Do NOT trust this app. The only purpose I can see for this app is to alert you if your account is being accessed by someone else.
Alerts and controls have been added to help users monitor and track specific transaction types: in-store purchases, e-commerce transactions, mail/phone orders and ATM transactions.
