At BankCherokee, your account security is our top priority. With all of the cyber fraud going on today, we have put extra monitoring in place to protect your accounts. To help avoid any interruptions with using your check card while traveling, please let us know of your travel plans so we can set a travel notification on the cards you plan to use.
If you are traveling overseas, we can also find out if you have a check card with an EMV Chip - which is what you'll need. If you don't have one, we'll be happy to order one for you. An EMV chip is a computer chip which is embedded in the check card and provides more security. EMV chip enabled terminals communicate through a physical connection with the chip in your card - validating the card and securing the transaction with a one-time code.
It is also a good idea to contact your credit card companies to report your travel plans to them as well.
