Ratings and Reviews
Does not work at all. Pointless.
If I could give 0 I would. The app serves absolutely no purpose. I has not sent me a single notification even though I have allowed my iphone and the app to do so. An agent advised me to get it because I was misled as to what my balance was and my account was in the negative. I am very upset, and not just because of this one instance, but I have been with AFCU for over 3 years now and they still to this day do not allow their clients to receive notifications. I think that is terrible for a bank in 2017. I want a text message every time my card is used, and I want to see my updated balance in that text too. I will not get a credit card, and thus not do business with them anymore next year if they have not fixed that.
Saved us several times
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!
Will not even open!
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.
