A-list algorithms that make spending (even) safer

If something looks suspicious, our award-winning machine learning models will pick it up. We’ll notify you and take action immediately. If we freeze your card, you can review and if you recognise the transaction, unfreeze in a tap.
  • We freeze out thieves in seconds

    High-risk transactions and unusual spending patterns are identified immediately by our own award-winning, AI-based algorithms — all built in-house. We trigger proactive warnings that detect more than 95% of attempted scams. If an unauthorised transaction gets through? And an unauthorised transaction gets through? You may be covered by VISA and MasterCard’s liability protection. If you still encounter any issues, our award-winning support team are on hand 24/7 to help resolve them in minutes. How’s that for peace of mind?

Superpowers for spending online

Ever heard of self-destructing card details? You have now. Your details are immediately deleted and refreshed after each purchase, so they can’t be reused.
  • Over 85% of payment fraud starts online

    So how do we keep you protected? We can freeze your card instantly if anything unusual happens online, too. For even more protection, use a single-use virtual card. The card details are immediately deleted and refreshed after each purchase, so they can’t be reused or skimmed by criminals. And they’re super easy to set up. Two-factor authentication is required for sensitive transactions, and you can label merchants you use regularly as trusted – so you don’t have to approve payments every time.

Private payments to keep your info under wraps

You decide whether to hide your name or profile picture when you’re sending money to a Revolut account that isn’t in your contacts – or choose not to be discoverable at all. All your chats are encrypted, too.
