Q: What is passcode and what are the options they come with it?

A: The passcode is used for session validation and has two options. One is the actual passcode itself, the other (for apple devices only) is touch ID. If you have logged in with your password, you have created a new session. That session should last for 24 hours assuming the user doesn't close the app completely. If a user has not closed the app and they switch back and forth between apps they should be able to use the passcode to reenter the app. If they have closed the app or the session time has expired then they will be kicked back to the login screen.

Q: We have a cardholder that is having trouble registering their card in the MobiMoney app. What could be wrong?

A: If a cardholder is having trouble registering their card in the MobiMoney app, the first step is to verify that the address, SSN and expiration date that the user is entering in the MobiMoney app is correct. If the cardholder is still unable to register the Trustco Debit Card, please contact Trustco Bank Customer Service at 1-800-670-4110.

Q: Is the Block International Transactions Control designed to block cards outside the US? What if a cardholder lives outside of the U.S.? Will this control decline transactions in their home country?

A: "Block International" is really "Block Non-US" transactions. If the cardholder lives outside the US, do not use any of the location controls including My Location and My Region Controls.

Also, the MobiMoney APP is only available in the US App Store. In order for a cardholder outside of the US to download the app, they would need to access the US store by having an account setup with Apple/Google that was based in the United States.
