Please note: Find My iPhone must be enabled in iCloud settings on your device before you can locate it with this app.

If you can't download the Find my iPhone app or can’t disable Apple Pay using your iCloud account from another device, you should cancel your physical debit or credit cards which will delete your virtual cards from Apple Pay. You should also review your Online & Mobile Banking transactions. If you notice any suspicious activity, please contact us immediately by calling the number on the back of your card.
