São Paulo, August 3, 2023 – Starting next Monday, August 7, Nubank customers will have even more security when making online purchases. The company has just announced a temporary virtual credit card that expires in 24 hours. The idea is to bring even more peace of mind and protect users from potential fraud. The new feature will be offered gradually and available to the entire customer base in the coming months.
The customer can create a temporary card, Roxinho (Gold/Platinum) or Ultravioleta (Black), on the same screen where they view all their physical and virtual cards, in the “My Cards” section in the Nubank app. The credit limit is the same as the main card, and installment options are available. The card is created instantly, and after that, customers simply need to copy the data to use it for online purchases on websites and apps, preserving the bank information of the main card. It cannot be used in digital wallets and it is not recommended for recurring purchases as the card expires in 24 hours, and new purchases will be denied after that.
Purchases made with the temporary card will be included in the regular monthly bill, along with purchases made with the physical card and other virtual cards. After creating it, the customer can check the remaining time to use it on the card management screen. Just like with other physical and virtual cards, the customer can always access the transaction history of the temporary cards created. After it expires, the temporary card is automatically deleted, and a notification is sent to the user to inform them of the deletion.
