Seattle-based MAP Prepaid, a provider of Visa®Prepaid card programs for credit unions, has introduced its “MAP App” for smartphones. With the MAP App, cardholders can manage their Visa Prepaid card account directly from an iOS or Android mobile device.
The MAP App is the first network-branded prepaid card exclusively serving credit unions to offer mobile banking. The full-featured app allows cardholders to check balances, view recent transaction history, suspend or reactivate cards, search for ATMs or ReadyLink locations using the built-in locator, and set up transaction and balance alerts directly from their phone.
Credit union members with MAP Visa Prepaid cards can download the MAP app to their smartphone from the Apple App Store or Google Play. Mobile data transmissions and card information are protected by 128-bit encryption, the same security provided through online banking.
