Safety and Security

Greenlight's top priority

Turn card off anytime

Both parents and kids can turn the card off with a single touch within the Greenlight app. (btw, did you check the jean pocket?)

Parent-controlled PIN

A PIN number is required to use the card. Parents can set and manage their child’s PIN number anytime from their app.

ATM access controls

Parents can choose whether their child can use their card to withdraw money from ATMs. And if so, how much.

Real-time notifications

Parents receive alerts anytime the card is used, so they know when, where and how much their child is spending.

Activity logs

See all historical activity for spending, saving, giving and earning.

No cash back

Greenlight cards cannot be used to get cash back from a purchase, ensuring spend controls are followed.

Blocked categories

Greenlight blocks certain spend categories like wire transfers, money orders, lotteries, gambling and others.


All communications between your phone and our servers use state of the art SSL encryption.

Data security

Your most sensitive information is stored by our partners, who are compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.

FDIC insured

Greenlight accounts are FDIC insured through our partner, Community Federal Savings Bank, member FDIC.
