Digital card, mobile payment

You can now pay faster at thousands of retailers using your Hanscom FCU ATM & Check Card or your Hanscom FCU MasterCard Credit Card from your mobile phone.

Whether you use Apple Pay®, Samsung Pay™, or Android Pay™, we've got you covered.

If you’ve never tried a digital wallet, don’t worry. It’s easy to use and secure. There are no fees, and tracking your transactions across all your cards will help you stay on budget.

Get Started

Use the preloaded app on your phone, or download it from iTunes® or on Google Play*. To use any of the apps, you will need to set up a lock screen in your phone's settings. Open the app and add your card by scanning or entering the information. Follow the prompts to confirm and verify your card.

If the response on your phone tells you to contact your financial institution, call us at 781-698-2030 to complete authentication. Once we have validated your identity, we’ll activate your card for digital payments.

Easy

Now you’re ready to pull out your phone when it’s time to pay. Depending on the type of phone you have, you may be directed to tap, hold the phone near the terminal, or use your fingerprint to confirm.

If you ever wish to remove your card, you can open the app and follow the instructions to delete it from your wallet.

Secure

The app doesn’t use your actual card number. Instead, it creates a tokenized account number. The tokenized number is transmitted with a one-time use cryptogram so your private information stays safe and secure.

Can I still use my card and online account?

Yes. You can still swipe or insert your card at payment terminals and use it for online and telephone purchases. Your transactions will appear as they usually do on your monthly statement and your online account.
