What is SecurLOCK™ Equip?

SecurLOCK™ Equip is a debit card app that allows you to control how, when and where your debit card is used. It is a simple and secure way to manage and monitor your payment transaction activity. SecurLOCK™ Equip can help keep your payment cards safe and provide instant notifications whenever your card is used.

At this time, Cross Keys Bank Credit Cards are not supported.

How do I get the SecurLOCK™ Equip app?


Download from the App Store or Google Play Store. Once the app has successfully downloaded to your phone you can begin to register your debit cards. (Note: This app is developed by FIS. Their name will appear on the SecurLOCK™ app when searching in your app store. When you have registered your CKB card, the CKB Debit card will appear when using the app.)

Is there a fee to use the app?

No, it is provided to you free so you have more control over your card.

How many cards can I register?

Unlimited. But the card(s) must be Cross Keys Bank debit cards.

What mobile devices are supported?

What if I am having trouble during registration?

Please contact your local branch or send a secure message via Online Banking. 

Why do you need my email address?

Your email address is needed for password resets.

Alerts and Controls

Once I register my cards, how do I begin managing and monitoring my payment activity?

You can begin using the service immediately. When turning the card off, the green button at the top right corner of the card image will turn to red. This means that all transactions (except for recurring payments) will be declined. When you are ready to make a purchase, simply turn the card back on. It is that easy. Now you have the ultimate control to combat fraud.

After you become comfortable with the on/off function you can start selectively setting controls and alerts by channel (in-store, online, mobile, ATM, etc.). You can also set transaction spend limits, select geographic locations where the card can be used, set specific merchant categories, view recent transaction history, receive real-time alerts and much more.

What is a real-time alert?

It is an immediate notification sent to the app. You can select to be alerted on all your payment transactions including recurring payments or you can select just preferred transactions. Preferred alerts are available by spend limits, location, transaction type and merchant category. 

By turning my card off am I closing my account?

No. Using the card controls does not change the status of your account.

How long does it take for a control or alert setting to take effect?

It happens immediately after you set and save the option.

If I have my card turned off will my recurring transactions go through?

Yes. Merchant recurring transactions will be approved. Additionally, you can select to receive alerts on recurring transactions as well. 

Can I use My Location, My Region and International at the same time?

My Locations and My Region can work independently or together. Neither can be used in conjunction with International.

I turned my card on and set My Location. I was at the merchant, and my transaction was still declined. Why? 

In the app go to Transactions, find the one that was denied and open it, tap the image so it rotates, and the control(s) that were evoked during the authorization will be listed near the bottom. The transaction could also be declined because of external factors like non-sufficient funds or fraud monitoring.

What are Alert Preferences? 

Alert preferences let you know every time a card transaction is attempted. You can be alerted for all or preferred transactions. Preferred alerts are also available by location, transaction type, merchant type, and threshold amount.

My alerts are supposed to notify me of every transaction, but I am not receiving them. 

Only the primary device will receive alerts. Use the settings menu in the app to set your device as primary.

Managing The App

Once I get a new replacement smartphone how do I begin using the service again?

Just download the app to your new smartphone and login with your current user ID and password. You can then set your controls and alert preferences. 

I received a new card number. Will it be automatically updated in the app?

You will have to add the new account to the app. This can be done by going to Manage Account and adding the card. Be sure to “unmanage’ the old card.

What if I need help with the app?

There is a “Help” function within the app as well as a “Contact Us” category where you can send an email to us. During business hours, you may also feel free to call the eBanking Department at 318-766-3246 or contact your local branch.

How long will my transaction history display? 

The last 50 transactions will display in the app for thirty calendar days.

My pending purchase shows it is for more than I paid. Why?

Some merchants send pre-authorizations at higher amounts to test cards' validity. For example, a $25 gas purchase might display as $126. Pre-authorizations are common at the pump, for a hotel stay, or for a car rental. Even though the charge is listed in the app for more, it will clear your account for the correct amount.

I only want to manage one of my cards, but they're all being displayed.

To select the card(s) you wish to manage, go to Settings and choose Manage Cards. Then uncheck the card or cards you don't want to manage. Once a card is unmanaged, controls and alerts cannot be set for that card.

How do I access the menu or log out? 

Press the icon that has three stacked lines to reach the menu. This icon is usually found in the top right corner.

How do I get more information about the features and functionality of the app?

Detailed information can be found throughout the app. Help can be found at the bottom of the login page and listed in the menu. On specific pages such as the My Location page tipping the “i “ next to My Regions will open a window with detailed information on how the control works.

What if my smartphone is stolen? How secure is the app?

The app requires a password to access the app. Also, there is no personal information stored on the smartphone. The app only displays the last four digits of your card number.

Is Touch ID available on Android phones?
