Travel plans in your future? Please let LAPFCU know before you go! Help ensure we don’t inadvertently block your card due to apparently suspicious charges.
With your LAPFCU checking account, you receive a free EMV, chip-enabled debit card – the latest, safest in card technology. Instead of swiping your credit card, you will use a “dipping” method of placing your card in a terminal slot while the chip is being processed. However, most merchants still have the “swiping” method as an option. In addition to extra security, our LAPFCU debit card comes with:
- Access to over 30,000 CO-OP Network ATMs nationwide
- Account balances and purchases can be viewed 24/7 in the LAPFCU app and PATROL Online Banking*
- Text alerts with smsGuardian* and SecureCode for extra security with online purchases

smsGuardianTMFor Debit Cards
The best way to beat debit card fraud is to catch it early and stop it. That’s why LAPFCU has smsGuardianTM, a system that notifies you when a signature-based transaction is performed with your LAPFCU debit card. If you receive an alert* for a purchase you didn’t make, and confirm that it’s an unauthorized transaction, a notification will be sent to a fraud analyst so that an immediate block can be placed on the card.
