I’ve been trying to decide between Monzo and Starling for a little while now, one of the best things for me about Starling (even though i prefer the Monzo UI) is the additional card controls they offer, which i would love to see in Monzo, and would then completely swing me in favour of using the Monzo account/app!
They have many more card controls other than just block gambling, location & freeze.
My favourite ones are:
• Disable contacless payments
• Disable online payments
• Disable ATM withdrawls
I like this as it offers you added protection for online/contactless payments, so you can enable only IF/WHEN you want to use the card, at all other times, you are thus protected from fraudulent online payment or contactless skimming!
Disabling ATMwithdrals i likely wouldn’t use, but i can see it being a usful update for some people.
I really would love however the other 2 card control options added to Monzo!
Also, if you’re consisdering it, VIRTUAL CARDS would also be great so as to nullify online payment fraud…
