  • Love this app! Feb 24, 2021

    By skyedavie143
    I absolutely love this app! The customs are so convenient! After ordering & purchasing things off the Internet I kept getting my information stolen & things were bought from my card that weren’t from me. I had to keep reporting my card from theft & getting new cards & shutting off my ok’d ones. Then I was rushing to put my money I wasn’t currently using in savings to make sure no other charges would be made. But now that I have this app, I am able to turn on & off my card any time I want. & I do, multiple times a day. I love it! So now that I’m kinda traumatized from my card being used by scammers & fraudulent sites. I always turn off my card until I’m ready to use it & now no transactions are made by anyone but me. It makes me feel much safer! I love this app!

    I love this app. I gat notifications instantly when I or any of my family make a purchase so I am aware of any use. A few months ago I received 2 notifications that didn’t make sense, I checked with family members immediately and realized that someone was using my card fraudulently. I was able to turn the card off and report it and get the charges reversed! It was amazing. The total process took some time but I felt like it went as fast as it possibly could have. The charges were over $800 and I didn’t have to pay any of it because it was caught so quickly.

    The card guard app gives me amazing control over my cards and visibility to what is happening with them. I recently lost A card while on vacation and didn’t notice until we had left the previous city and we’re filling up with fuel 400 miles away. I was able to turn the card off after fueling with my wifes card. No one could use it cause it needs to be in my possession( near my phone). No fraud use occurred and I have new cards ordered.

    The wife and I live outside UT but still use AFCU for several reasons...card guard being one of them. If you are disciplined this little app will save you a ton of headaches when your information is stolen. Just yesterday the wife got a denied on her phone for a charge at a Walmart in a different state. No doubt part of the Equifax fallout. If you are tired of getting hacked, I’d strongly recommend this app but you have to be disciplined to use it!

    This app is amazing! I opened an account specifically for online and Venmo/PayPal purchases. I keep my card turned off until I am planning to make a purchase. I turn it on, get notification of pending transaction, and then turn it off again. I’ve had problems with fraudulent transactions in the past and I no longer need to worry about that. This app saves the day!!!! Thank You AFCU!!!
  • Good, but one potential problem. Nov 30, 2019

    By Fjordly
    I appreciate having control over my cards. I always know what I’m buying and where. However, I don’t like the fact that when I launch the app, if I want to use Touch ID, I have to have Remember My Name enabled. The “name” though, is the account number. Someone could launch the app and see your account number. It would be nice if just my name appeared.
  • New update is great! Apr 7, 2019

    By Forrest195
    Changing my rating- The new update has fixed the issues that were seen before. Thanks to the devs for the hard work! This app serves a great purpose with the ability to turn on/off cards instantly. However, it desperately needs an update. Please integrate this with your existing AFCU app, it would make that app even better!!

    Works well for turning cards on and off and seeing history. I keep getting multiple alerts for each transaction though. Plus my alert badge never resets so it's in the hundreds.

    This app is great it’s saved me and my husband a few times from people stealing out card info and charging $1000’s on our account. It sends you a notification with any suspicious transaction you log on and if it’s not one of yours turn off your card so they can’t steal your hard earned cash
  • Great app! Feb 28, 2020

    By I-ain't-dead-yet
    This app gives you the new level of security that mobile banking has needed for so long. I don’t know how I got along before. I love that I can turn my card on to use it, then turn it back off when I am through so I know no one else can use it until I turn it on again.

  • Terrible implementation Dec 12, 2020

    By anaknipedro
    Firstly, this app’s features should just be integrated with the normal America First app. I don’t understand the reasoning for the standalone app. Secondly, it uses a different user name than the America first app. You cannot sign in with your account number. Thirdly, it does not integrate with iCloud password so you have to type in the password manually. The password field also does not allow you to paste the password if you have it saved somewhere. This incentivized to use her to use a week password. If you have good password habits and use a complex, unmemorable password, good luck getting in. Judging by the infrequent updates, I do not expect these issues to be fixed any time soon.
  • Will not even open! Jun 16, 2017

    By Brmecampbell
    I have an iPhone 6 and every time I try and open the app it just say cannot connect to financial institutions. I have tried calling and emailing customer service but nothing is working and I still haven't gotten any replies. I would love for this to work. My dad (AFCU employee) uses this almost on a daily. Seems to not work on iOS! Fix this! Very annoying, and horrible Customer Service for the credit union. Idont know how hard it is to simply fix a bug or reply to a customer who has tried many times to get a hold of someone. Would not recommend, waste of space and time.
  • It’s an ok app Jul 11, 2020

    By unclegoofy519
    After 5 or 6 times I access the app it restarts itself to where I have to enter my account and password. Getting a bit tired of this happening. Of course it happens when i need to access it in a hurry. The other thing I can have 4 bars on my cell signal and the app freezes up “Waiting for a secure, please wait”. You wait and it’s a joke. Needs to be fixed before I change my rating.
  • Does not work with password managers Jul 27, 2021

    By iGadget_00
    The app no longer works with password managers. I used the Apple built-in password manager and Norton password manager and I no longer see the auto fill features from either of those services. So if you have an extremely long and difficult password you will have to enter it manually. Also the copy / paste function does not work in the login fields so you cannot paste your password to login as a workaround.

    Very happy with all the features and protections that I used. It offered me a since of security UNTILL the server went down for some 3 hours. I had my cards turned off and desperately needed to use a card for a transaction. I wasn’t able to conduct a vitally needed transaction. I WAS LITERALLY YOU KNOW WHAT. I tried for hours did a reboot checking carefully making sure it was the server. Now I only use it for notifications as I CANT DEPEND ON THIS APP ANYMORE !!!!!!!!!!
  • Total Garbage Now Feb 5, 2018

    This app used to work about 6 months ago. Now I constantly get a connection error. No matter what device I use it on, what network I’m connected to, even if I use mobile data, I’ve deleted and downloaded it a few times and it DOES NOT WORK. I spoke with AFCU and they have no clue why it doesn’t work either. This app needs to be updated and fixed. When it works, it’s great! Love it! But can’t love it if it won’t work. Please update this app and fix the problem!

  • Does its job well Mar 14, 2019

    By jobear1356
    I’ve used this app for quite a while and it works perfectly. It takes less than 10 seconds when I use my card for it to notify me. Also when I use Apple Pay. My only suggestion would be to install Face ID. Other than that it’s perfect.
  • Highly recommend Oct 11, 2019

    By ILUVMICKEY22
    I love America First, couldn’t be happier with their service and support. I feel safe with them. Card guard gives me peace of mind. When I can’t find my card I can turn it off and back in when I find it. No need to panic and order a new card. Very helpful.
