When to Use PNC Easy Lock.
- Misplaced your card? PNC Easy Lock puts you in control by allowing you to lock it when you can't locate your personal or business debit or credit card. Locking your card means no new purchases, cash advances or withdrawals can be made until you unlock it. You should continue to monitor your account activity for unauthorized transactions or errors while the card is locked.
- Locking your card is fast and can ensure no new purchases, cash advances or withdrawals will be accepted. However, recurring transactions to merchants may still go through.
- PNC Easy Lock is not a replacement for reporting your card as lost or stolen. If you need to report a lost or stolen card, please contact us immediately at 1-888-762-2265.

While purchases, cash advances, and withdrawals are stopped when you lock your debit or credit card, certain transactions will continue, such as transactions identified as recurring by the merchant (both new and previously scheduled), transactions made with other cards linked to a business credit card account, transactions made with other cards linked to your checking/savings account (debit card, banking card and University debit card only), university/college services, including meal plan transactions and dorm access (University debit card only), balance transfers, overdraft protection and payments made to your account (credit card only), reward redemptions, checks, account related fees, interest, dispute adjustments, posting of merchant refunds or other credits to your account, and other exempt transactions.
Also, transactions made and authorized (pending) prior to locking your card will not be blocked.
