How do I turn my debit, credit and prepaid cards on or off?

  • This service lets you activate and deactivate your cards and you can decide how to use them from the BBVA website or app. You can also restrict their transactions, for example, to only withdraw money, reject online purchases or disable payments abroad.

    To use it you have to:

    • Go to your "Global Position".
    • Select your card and click on operations.
    • Limit the operations as desired.

    Any changes you make, such as a card activation or deactivation, can be reversed at any time by following the same process.
