How does one Block/Unblock a Credit Card, using iMobile Pay?
August 26, 2021
Previously, the process of managing all the features on your Credit Card was either not convenient or not fast. Even though Credit Card statements were mailed or sent to your address physically, every month, in case you wanted to access your current Bank Statements, you had to either log in to Internet Banking or visit a bank branch. Similarly, if you wished to modify certain features on your card, like the credit limit or make use of the ‘Convert to EMI’ option, you would have to call the bank or visit the branch.
By using the powerful iMobile Pay app from ICICI Bank, you can do all that and more for your Credit Card. You can keep track of your Credit Card usage, access statements and manage Credit Cards, remotely, anytime, from anywhere. All you would need is to get the iMobile Pay app installed on your Android or iOS smartphone and have an active internet connection.
One of the most important banking features is now available at your fingertips. You now have the ability to block or unblock your Credit Card, using the app. In the past, if you suspected theft of your Credit Card or simply lost it, you would have to immediately call the bank and request them to block your Card. But, even this facility has now been transferred online, through the iMobile Pay app.
Let us look at how you can use the iMobile Pay app to manage your Credit Card and block it, in case you lose it.
