The nimbl prepaid debit card powered by Mastercard® has the same strong security measures in place as an adult credit or debit card. We use industry leading security in our nimbl web app and mobile app to protect your data at all times.
You can set appropriate spending limits and choose whether the card can be used in store, online or for withdrawing cash. With the nimbl app, you’ll receive instant alerts about your child’s nimbl card activity to help oversee safe and appropriate use.
Yes, where possible we restrict the nimbl card from being used at age-inappropriate retailers by default. For example gambling sites & casinos, adult content and at off-licences and pubs. We do our part, but at the moment it’s not possible to restrict the nimbl card from being used to buy age-inappropriate products at permitted retailers such as grocery stores. We rely on retailers to verify the age of the cardholder, where necessary.
The nimbl card and app have been specifically designed to help your child manage their money, which is why it comes loaded with amazing features such as instant top up, micro-savings, digital pocket money, gifting and ‘soft’ lock and unlock card option.
These options are not included with child bank accounts on the market!
