How does Wells Fargo help protect my debit card?

Your Wells Fargo Debit Card comes with Zero Liability protection at no extra cost. This means you won’t be responsible for any promptly reported unauthorized card transactions.

We also help prevent unauthorized transactions by regularly reviewing your accounts, and we’ll notify you immediately if we suspect unusual activity. If your financial information is ever compromised or stolen, we provide the information and assistance necessary to help you get your account back on track.

How can I better protect myself and my debit card?

There are several things that you can do to help protect yourself when using your debit card.

  • Be cautious. When you use your debit card at any sales counter or ATM, be aware when people are near or behind you. To keep others from seeing your PIN, you can use your hand or body to shield their view of the keypad.
  • Sign up for alerts. Our debit card alerts help you stay informed about unusual activity on your debit card. You can set up alerts to notify you when your card:
    • Is used for an online, phone, or mail order purchase
    • Is used in an international location
    • Exceeds the purchase amount that you set
    • Exceeds the daily ATM withdrawal amount that you set
  • Monitor your account regularly. With Wells Fargo Online you can securely access your accounts and keep track of your transactions and balances at any time. You can do this via your computer, tablet, or mobile device.
