Protect Your Information During the Holiday Season

The busiest shopping time of the year is here. Shop safer and stay quickly informed of activity on your account with these free services provided by United Community Bank. First, it's important to make sure your phone number and email address are up-to-date so we can contact you quickly in case there's suspicious activity on your account. In addition, we offer several services that help you stay on top of your account information.


As a UCB VISA debit cardholder, you’re empowered to take a proactive approach in setting controls that complement the fraud protection already in place with your account.

From our Mobile App, you can:

  • Turn your card on and off: With a single tap, you can immediately disable your card. When your card is blocked, new purchases and ATM transactions are declined. Also, you can easily remove the block at any time.
  • Limit transaction amounts: Choose a maximum transaction amount to control individual purchase totals.
  • Limit transaction locations: Control where a card is used by choosing to block international transactions or specify a location radius where transactions are allowed. Location limits apply to in-store and ATM Transactions; e-commerce/online transactions are not included in this setting.
  • Limit merchant transactions: Control how your card is used by choosing to block specific types of merchants. For example, cards can be set to only work for gas stations. Merchant types are available to you with explanation within our app.
