Mobile Wallets are no longer the wave of the future. They’re an everyday payment option.

Benefits of using Mobile Wallets
Safe and Secure
When you add your cards to a digital wallet, a unique number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in your phone. Whenever you make a purchase, the unique number, along with a transaction-specific security code, is used to process your payment. Your actual debit and credit card numbers are never shared with merchants or transmitted with the payment.
Your Privacy Matters
Stanford FCU and mobile wallets help ensure your information remains confidential.
Your transaction information is not saved on your phone, so your payments are private. Since you never have to show your card, you never reveal your name, card number, or security code to the cashier when you pay in a store.
Mobile Wallet is a revolutionary contactless payment technology that allows you to purchase items by loading your cards onto your mobile device and then tapping the device or hovering close to the card reader rather than using your physical card.
When consumers hand over credit or debit cards to pay, their card numbers and identities are visible. Mobile Wallet solutions use unique tokens rather than actual credit or debit card numbers. These solutions assign, encrypt and securely store a unique “token” for each transaction. When a purchase is made, the token, along with a transaction-specific dynamic security code, is used to process the payment. The actual card number is never shared with merchants or transmitted with the payment.
All debit and credit cards can be loaded, with the exception of the Health Savings Debit Card (HSA).
Your card number is never used in a mobile wallet transaction. Should the cashier need the last digits of your unique number, this can be found with your card information in your mobile wallet.
You can remove your card from your mobile wallet at any time. It will have no other impact on your actual card status, so you can continue using the plastic card as usual.
Stanford FCU may also remove your card from your mobile wallet for one of the following reasons:
(1) You reported your card lost or stolen, and we blocked the card and deleted it from the mobile wallet.
(2) We detected fraud on your account, blocked the card and deleted it from your mobile wallet to protect you.
Yes. Whether you use a digital account number or a physical Visa card, you are protected with Visa’s Zero Liability Policy
against fraudulent transactions.
Please contact Stanford FCU at 888.723.7328 as soon as possible. Once you receive your replacement card, you can add your new card to your mobile wallet and delete the one which was lost.
Contact Stanford FCU at 888.723.7328 to delete your card from your mobile wallet. You can continue using your card as normal.
For any new or replacement cards, you will go through the initial set up to add the card to your mobile wallet. For a card renewal, the new expiration date will be automatically provided by Visa, so no action is required by you.
Some purchases require a pre-authorization before you can actually make the purchase, such as at gas stations and vending machines. In these instances, your mobile wallet will show the authorization amount and not the final purchase price. The final purchase price will be accurate in Online and Mobile Banking, and on your account statement.
