Visa Europe is trialling a transaction alert service that’ll send customers a text message every time their credit card is used. The new mobile service will include the time, location and amount of each transaction. Messages can also be delivered via email or directly to applications for the Apple iPhone and Android-powered smartphones.
At the moment the service is just being tested with Visa’s UK staff, although it’s hoped the service will soon be offered to consumers. [Sources: Computing.co.uk; TechRadar.com]
