There is nothing you need to do to access this service. Your current TGB Debit Card will be automatically enabled for this service.
Easy and Worry-Free Payments
When you use a wallet app to make in-store and online purchases with your TGB debit card in your mobile wallet, your card number is replaced with a unique code or "token" for each transaction. This means that neither your account nor debit card numbers are ever shared. The “token” is worthless if it is stolen, hacked, or intercepted. This increases the security of your card for transactions, reducing the potential for fraud.
Benefits of Wallet Apps
We simplify your purchasing experience by nearly eliminating the need to enter and re-enter your account number when purchasing on a mobile device. Tokens also help prevent fraud by removing sensitive card account information from the payment process. Just tap your phone and go!
Other benefits include:
- Contactless payment solution
- Eliminate the need for cards to physically leave your hands
- Easy to use in-person, online, or with an app
- Enhanced transaction security
- Reduced risk of fraud wherever you shop
Never Hand Over Your Card Again
Data breaches are inevitable, but tokenization helps reduce the threat of attacks since merchants and mobile wallet providers do not need to store actual account or card numbers.
