CardValet Frequently Asked Questions
CardValet works with the most recent operating software as well as the previous two generations of Android and iOS smartphones. CardValet is not available for smartphones using Windows software.
Yes. Cardholders may register multiple 4Front cards within a CardValet account. Additional cards maybe added within the “Settings > Add Card” screen. There is no limit to the number of 4Front cards that may be linked to a single CardValet account.
CardValet is available to manage 4Front smart debit Mastercards for both personal and business accounts and 4Front smart credit Mastercards for personal accounts. While CardValet cannot currently support 4Front smart business credit cards at this time, this capability will be available in the future.
If the 4Front smart debit or credit Mastercard number is new, then the user must add the new card number to the their CardValet profile. The user may delete the old card by accessing Settings > Manage Accounts.
My Location determines proximity based upon the location of the enrolled user's device. Therefore a dependent attempting a purchase outside of the enrolled user's proximity will be unsuccessful. To somewhat limit the dependent’s card but not effectively turn it off, the enrolled user may choose to use the broader "Region" feature to set usage preferences for where the card can be used. Set location preference to “Region” in the drop down menu, then add a “New Region” to set the map to the area where the card may be used.
CardValet only displays transactions performed with the enrolled 4Front smart Mastercard. It does not display transactions performed on the account without using the enrolled card.
CardValet users should enter the first 20 characters of the street address.
CardValet passwords must be at least eight (8) characters in length and must contain at least: one (1) upper case character, one (1) lower case character, one (1) number and one (1) special character.
Yes, though users will be prompted to identify a smartphone as "primary." The primary device's physical location is used to process “My Location” alerts and controls. Additionally, all merchant and threshold alerts will be sent to the primary device. All devices that have registered a particular card may view or change the CardValet settings for that card. Controls (including the “On/Off” setting) are set at the card level, meaning the last update to a control will be honored regardless of which phone was used to make the change. Alerts are set at the device level, so each primary device will receive alerts that were set up from that particular device. The primary device can be re-set by accessing “Settings > Primary Device.”
For security reasons, CardValet will automatically log off the user after ten (10) minutes.
Yes. CardValet displays the last 50 card-based transactions posted within the last 30 days.
CardValet alerts are sent as push notifications to the device. The alerts also display under “Messages” in the CardValet app.
Specific merchant types have been created within CardValet, and these merchant types can be used for controls or alerts via the “Alert Preferences” or “Control Preferences” screen. Each of the merchant types contains various merchant category codes (MCC). It is possible for a retailer to forward a MCC that may differ from the CardValet merchant type classification. Merchant types currently supported include: Department Store; Entertainment; Gas Station; Grocery; Household; Personal Care; Restaurant; Travel; and Others.
Control settings take effect as soon as the “Updating information” message in the app completes.
Previously authorized recurring payments will continue to process and will bypass the CardValet controls.
The region shows the approximate area where the card can be used. CardValet can typically map the transaction to a zip code or city. If the city or zip code of the merchant overlaps with the selected region in the map, the transaction will process. Occasionally, a merchant location cannot be mapped to a zip code or city, in which case CardValet will default to a state-level match.
CardValet performs a proximity check at the granularity of zip code or city. If the merchant is close to home, the transactions may still process. If the transaction occurs outside the relative proximity of the device, the transaction will not process.
CardValet ignores location information that is more than one (1) hour old. If the device has been turned off for more than an hour, My Location controls will not take effect, and the transaction will not be denied on the basis of the old location information.
The My Location controls and alerts will confirm the merchant location is within a five (5) mile radius of the device set as “primary” within CardValet. These controls impact “card present” transactions only, therefore internet transactions are not affected.
