1 – We will remind you of your appointment to collect your Timo Visa 

This is an additional feature to assist customers in the application process for a Timo Visa. For customers who always have a tight work schedule, forgetting an appointment can happen anytime. To help customers overcome this problem, we will remind you of your appointment with us via your smartphone.
Specifically, if you have an appointment to complete your Timo Visa application, you will be reminded of your appointment 2 hours before the appointment time. However, this will only happen if you allow us to send you push notifications to your phone.

2 – You can lock/unlock your card quickly and safely

Although this feature already exists in the Timo app, it has been updated to help you promptly prevent unauthorized access to your account and card through the Timo app. With the new update, you will not have to enter OTP/iOTP upon locking your Timo Visa. This is because, as you lock your card, it will be impossible for any authorized access to occur. Hence, we would like to help you get this done as quickly as possible. On the other hand, OTP/iOTP is required to unlock your Timo Visa as a verification step to ensure security.
To use this feature, go to the Manage Cards feature in the app and tap on either Lock This Card or Unlock This Card at Timo Visa. The card status will also be shown on the same screen to help you manage your card easily.

3 – You can enable/disable e-commerce payments anytime, anywhere

To help you proactively protect your Timo Visa in a more comprehensive way, the 23rd version of the Timo app also offers the Enable/Disable E-commerce Payments feature for Timo Visa holders. With this feature, you can lock the online payment function of your card if you do not need to use your Timo Visa to make online payments. After disabling e-commerce payments, you will not be able to use your Timo Visa on any online platform and can only use your Timo Visa at ATMs or through POS swipes. When you want to use your Timo Visa online, you will need to enable e-commerce payments in the app first before being able to use your card for any online transaction.
Similar to the Lock/Unlock Your Card feature, this feature only requires you to enter OTP/iOTP for verification when you enable e-commerce payments. You would not need to carry out this step if you want to disable e-commerce payments from your Timo Visa.
The above updates of the Timo app’s 23rd version are put together to help you proactively protect your card and account better. With these updates, you can easily manage your shopping and spending activities with a few simple taps and swipes via the Timo app.
