RACINE - A new card control app launched by Educators Credit Union to help users prevent fraud losses.

Called “Ctrl,” the app allows users to turn their Educators cards on or off with just a swipe. Additionally, users can set limits for card transactions by geography, merchant type or dollar amount. The app allows users to receive text messages about transactions, as well.

“We believe Ctrl is a great way for users to take action to prevent fraud, rather than wait for something to happen,” said Katy McCabe, assistant vice president of eStrategy for Educators Credit Union, in a statement. “It’s a great way for Educators to be of service to its members and work to protect our members’ money.”

Educators Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial institution serving more than 128,00 members with branches in Racine, Kenosha, Walworth, Milwaukee and Waukesha counties.
