In addition, you can set security controls and alerts by purchase method (in-store, online, mobile, ATM, etc.), geographic location, merchant type, and amount.

No. Using the card off/on controls does not change the status of your account.
To turn your card off, select the little green "power" button to the right of each card listing from your app's home menu or from the top right corner of the card image in the Card Detail menu.
When this button is red, this means that your card is "off" and that all transactions (except for reoccurring) will be declined. When you need to make a purchase simply turn the card back on. It is that easy! Now you have the ultimate control to combat fraud.
It happens immediately after you set and save the option.
Yes. Merchant recurring transactions will be approved. Additionally, you can select to receive alerts on recurring transactions and even monitor monthly subscriptions under My Merchants in from the Card Detail menu.

The transaction could also be declined because of external factors like non-sufficient funds or fraud monitoring.
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.
Only the primary device will receive alerts. Use the settings menu in the app to set your device as primary.
