Discover monitors your account through a free service called Proactive Fraud Monitoring. This tool is constantly monitoring your card for any fraudulent activity and notifies you if any suspicious activity is detected. Click the link to sign up for fraud alerts.
You should regularly check your statement for any suspicious or unknown purchases. You can also check your account online. If you notice any unusual transactions, check with anyone you authorized to use your card to see if they recognize the transactions. If they do not, you can Initiate a Dispute or contact Customer Service.
Note: Even if you are a Discover Miles Card holder, you should notify Discover if you are planning to travel, especially outside of the U.S.
Discover's $0 Fraud Liability Guarantee means you're never responsible for unauthorized purchases on your Discover Card account.2
You should always log out at the end of each Account Center session. If you don't log out, others using the same computer could potentially access information saved or cached in the memory of the browser. As an extra precaution, close your browser's window before leaving the computer.
If you request another card design and have multiple cards under your account, make sure you keep track of all of your cards and destroy your card once it is expired.
A good password should be easy for you to remember but hard for somebody else to guess. Avoid using passwords that others might guess, such as a birth date, Social Security number or pet's name.
Select passwords you'll remember, but try replacing some of the letters with numbers—"secret" might be "s1cr1t," for example.
And mix up your passwords—use different passwords at different websites.
We currently have multiple industry-standard security solutions in place including:
128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) that encodes the personal information you send over the Internet
Multiple firewall layers
Active system monitoring to provide real-time alerts
