Reliable Fraud Protection

Brella can immediately send notifications to cardholders when potential fraudulent transactions pass through their card. When cardholders are aware of suspicious activity, such as purchases exceeding cardholder-defined limits, they can contact their financial institution and put a stop to it. Brella notifies cardholders of potentially fraudulent activity such as:

  • Purchase amounts exceeding the defined amount by the cardholder
  • Card-not-present transactions such as Internet or phone purchases
  • Suspicious transactions out of the cardholder’s normal transaction history
Transaction Control

Another great feature of Brella is transaction control. This feature allows you to be able to pause your card, without affecting previous transactions, if your card is stolen or goes missing. With the quick tap of a button, you can block or unblock your own cards much like a temporary card block the bank does. This fast and simple security feature increases safety. It not only gives you peace of mind and saves you the hassle of updating automatic payment information, but also saves you money by not replacing cards should they be found days later.

Transaction-Level Blocks

The transaction-level block feature allows cardholders to be able to set blocks for three transaction types:

  • Transactions over a specific dollar amount
  • Internet and phone transactions
  • Transactions outside the United States

If a block is in place for any of the above three transactions, the transaction will be declined on the spot. You, as a cardholder, will receive an alert each time an attempted transaction is blocked.

ATM Locator

Easily locate surcharge-free ATMs with our locator feature integrated with GPS technology. No matter where a Brella user travels, they’re able to locate the nearest ATM along with directions!

What is a digital wallet?

A digital wallet is a more convenient, secure way to bring all your numerous accounts and cards together. You then do not have to reach for your wallet when making a purchase. This is an application on your cell phone, tablet, or computer which allows you to make secure payments online, within apps, or in the store with merchants that can accept a digital wallet transaction.

Benefits
  • Eliminates the need to take out your wallet and use your physical card to purchase.
  • Reduces the risk of fraud in digital channels.
  • Saves you time while you are at the cashier counter by simply holding your phone over the payment terminal and initiating the purchase.
  • Shop on the go online as you will not have to type in your card numbers to complete a purchase.

Fraud

In a digital wallet, your card number is translated into its own unique token, or in other words, a secret identity. These tokens are similarly set up like a card number; however, they can be anywhere from 13-19 digits in length and will change each time you use your digital wallet in a transaction. Cardholders may benefit in reduce fraud because the token number is exposed to your digital wallet instead of your physical card’s number. The only individuals who know the card number are the cardholder, the bank, and the token’s service provider. Any data breaches to a company where you have used your digital wallet should not be of a threat since that company will only have your token number in their transaction list, not your card number.

FAQ

May I have more than one HomeTown Bank debit card in my digital wallet?
Yes, but you may only have one card set as your default card.

What HomeTown Bank debit cards can I add to my digital wallet?
Consumer, business, and HSA debit cards from HomeTown Bank are eligible to be added to your digital wallet.

How do I know if I can use my digital wallet at a merchant?
In-Store: You are able to use your digital wallet if the terminal has the contactless pay option activated with the logo on it.
Online: After you have found your new items online, proceed through the checkout system selecting your preferred wallet’s logo to log in and pay.

If my HomeTown Bank debit card is canceled due to fraud or being lost/stolen, can I still use my digital wallet to make a purchase with my HomeTown Bank debit card?
No, you will be unable to make a purchase through your digital wallet if your card is canceled. Once you receive your replacement card, you can go on your digital wallet and add your new card number.

Anytime you are traveling out of state, HomeTown Bank recommends you follow a couple of important notes to avoid having your card blocked due to suspected fraud. While you can call your local HomeTown Bank to get your card unblocked during our business hours, you can also call SHAZAM® at (866) 508-2693 if a transaction is getting denied unexpectedly.

  • Please notify your local HomeTown Bank of travel destinations and dates before you head off on your adventure.
  • Verify your current contact information with the bank in case SHAZAM®is trying to get a hold of you for a suspected fraudulent transaction.
  • PIN transactions are more secure and are less likely to be flagged for fraud, unlike signature transactions.
  • Always carry alternate means of payment in case your card was to be blocked and you cannot get in contact with HomeTown Bank or SHAZAM®.
    • Did you know HomeTown Bank offers credit cards with great rewards such as cashback? Check them out here!
  • Download Brella Card Manager from your phone’s application store to receive debit card notifications on your smartphone.

“I would recommend this bank to anyone! The employees are friendly and go out of their way to help answer any questions. It’s great to be able to talk with them in person instead of talking to someone on the phone in another state.”
