Soon you will be able to use your Blackhawk Community Credit Union credit and debit cards with Apple Pay, the easy, secure, and private way to pay. Use Apple Pay with iPhone 6 to pay in stores without swiping your cards and in apps without entering payment and contact information. Just pay with a single touch of your ﬁnger using Touch ID. With Apple Pay, instead of using your actual credit and debit card numbers when you add your card, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored. And when you make a purchase, the Device Account Number alongside a transaction-speciﬁc dynamic security code is used to process your payment. So your actual credit or debit card numbers are never shared by Apple with merchants or transmitted with payment. In addition, paying with Apple Pay is private as the cashier never sees your name, card numbers or security code. We’ll share more information about how to get started using Apple Pay with Blackhawk cards closer to

What should I do if I used my debit or credit card at a store that has been compromised? Protecting our member’s information is a priority and Blackhawk Community Credit Union. We monitor all reported breaches carefully. We utilize a highly-effective fraud monitoring service to identify transactions outside your typical purchasing habits to help mitigate the risk of fraudulent transactions. To further protect our members, if it is determined your card number has been breached Blackhawk will stop all suspicious transactions and will reissue you a new card number. Remember that cardholders have ZERO liability in the event any fraud that would occur on their card. The most important steps members can take is to watch your accounts diligently and report any unusual activity. Here are some additional tips on what can you do to prevent fraud?

As you may know, on April 8, 2014, Microsoft discontinued its support of its Windows XP operating system. Windows XP users have been unable to upgrade their Internet Explorer (IE) browser beyond IE8. Unfortunately, with this discontinuation of support from Microsoft, there will be no future security patches that will be needed to use Blackhawk Community Credit Union’s online banking system in the future. As of June 26, 2014, our online banking will no longer support IE8 as a browser. Although IE8 may continue to work for an indefinite period of time, we recommend that you download an updated internet browser, such as Firefox, or upgrade. If you have questions or if we can be of assistance, please contact our Call Center at 800-779-5555.
