Greenlight also works internationally in 150+ other countries, with no foreign transaction fees. No need to let us know if you travel abroad — you’ll have enough to remember.
Is Greenlight safe? Greenlight blocks ‘unsafe’ spending categories, sends real-time transaction notifications and gives parents flexible ATM and other spending controls. We also provide additional layers of protection to our families in the form of face or fingerprint recognition and the ability to turn your card on or off directly in the app. Greenlight debit cards are FDIC-insured up to $250,000, and come with Mastercard’s Zero Liability Protection.
