We have then prepared an article full of tips, tricks and functions for you to master the Nubank app, making the best use of all the services offered by the company. If you know more interesting information, leave it in the comments. Let's go to them.
1. Your information quickly
Want to pass your account to someone to make a deposit, or forgot your account number? Right on the first screen, or any other screen, locate the top of the screen where your company logo is and your name right after it. Did you see a little arrow? Click on it.
At the same time, a QR Code appears and after important information such as the bank number, your branch and account. In this same area, you can enjoy updating your personal data, including password.
2. Authorizing a new device
For security reasons, you can only use all functions of the Nubank app on one device. Therefore, if you change handsets, you must authorize the new handset. You download the app to it, log in with your app's CPF and password, and enter the code you received by email.
Go to your old device, in the same area where you accessed your information in the previous tip, click Profile, and then Authorize device. Follow the instructions.
3. Travel Notice
If you're traveling somewhere a little farther from your home, it's a good idea to let the credit card company know, whatever it is. In the Nubank app you warn without talking to anyone, just go to your area at the top arrow of the home, and then Set Up Card.
Find the Trip Warning option and turn it on, turning it off when you return. This prevents any purchase from you from being blocked, as Nubank knows that you are actually in a different location than usual, and that some spending there will really be yours.
4. Adjust your limit up or down
You do not always have to keep your limit to the maximum that was offered. For security, you can choose to leave it smaller than you have, with a small margin, so you won't be surprised if someone tries to make a purchase on your behalf or some subscription plan covers you without asking you first.
Go to your area on the top arrow of the home, and then Set Card (or, on the bottom menu, go to Adjust Limit). Touchez Adjust limit and take the drop arrow wherever you want. This is also a good way to spend more than you should by adjusting your limit to what you can spend that month.
5. Lock your card
A lot of people are afraid of having a credit card because anyone with its number and expiration date can shop outside of the fraud threats we're exposed to. To make you safer, you can keep your card locked.
In the bottom menu, look for and Touchez Lock card. A window appears and you just need to Touchez Lock. This way, any transaction will be interrupted until you unlock it. Be careful as this prevents recurring service charges and subscriptions as well. Consider whether it is better to use this option or the threshold adjustment option.
6. Ask for more limit
If you think your limit is small, or you are traveling and need more room to maneuver, you can request a limit increase without speaking to support. Go to your area on the top arrow of the home, and then Set Up Card. Touch Adjust limit, and below Ask for full limit increase.
Choose the new value by typing on the keyboard and Touchez Request more limit. Then choose the reason for the order and complete the actions. At the time, the app already returns with the response to your request, and also sends it by email.
Pro Tip: A lot of information about you is analyzed when you place this order. Therefore, the request is often not accepted. You can try as many times as you like, but what helps to have the limit raised is to pay your bill on time or even early and unfortunately spend a lot on the card.
7. Spend beyond your limit
If it's an emergency and you need to spend more than you're limited, like on a trip, there's a way to get more space on your card. Just make an advance payment, paying more than you spent. This artificially raises your limit, and you can spend more.
8. Changing the Due Date
If you need to pay your Nubank bill on a new date, you can do so through the app without having to resort to support. Go to your area on the top arrow of the home, and then Set Up Card. Touchez Expiration and choose a new day from the eight available.
Once chosen, Touchez Change. In this area you also give the best days for shopping in the coming months.
9. Send invitations to friends
Any friends of yours interested in Nubank? He can certainly download the app on his smartphone and ask for the invitation, but you can also invite him. In the app, you have invitations in the bottom home bar. Scroll to Find Refer Friends and Touchez the function.
You can send up to five email invitations, or several invitations via Messenger, WhatsApp and other apps on your smartphone. Further down, tapping View also gives you the directions you've made so far.
Pro Tip: While your invitation does not guarantee that your invited friend will be approved, it does expedite their approval or non-approval. All in all, it helps you get better on tape with the bank, and this may be good for you later on. But keep in mind that marketing invitations is prohibited anyway.
10. Release your card limit on time
Are you low on your card and need to make a purchase? If you pay the invoice, the limit is released again. But this can take a few days if you normally pay the ticket at your bank. To release within half an hour, simply pay the invoice with Nuconta. Most of the time, at the same instant, your limit is released.
At home, swipe the first large card, which speaks of your card statement, and Touchez the second, which speaks about Nuconta. Below your balance appear buttons, Touchez Pay. Choose Pay Card Invoice, and then choose the amount you want to pay by tapping Continue. Touch Confirm Payment.
So it is a good option to leave some money on Nuconta if you have it. In addition to yielding more than savings, you get this amount ready to settle the bill and open your card again.
11. Leave your favorite shortcuts handy
Refer friends, Card lock, Transfer, are not your favorite shortcuts but are at the beginning of the bottom menu? You can change their order and leave the ones you use most at hand. In this same menu, browse to and Touchez Arrange shortcuts.
A list appears, and by keeping your finger on all three strokes, you can reorder shortcuts to suit your taste. This saves important seconds when using the app.
12. Use virtual card in online shopping
Wherever you do not have to present the card and touch it or pass it on a machine, you can use the virtual card instead. It's a different number from your unique card that you sign up for on websites, e-commerce, subscription services (like the Play Store itself) and anything online.
So if you lose your card and have to issue a new one, you don't have to change everything again when another number arrives, and you can also use that virtual card until your card arrives. It is also safer, so your official number is not on the internet and, in case of any problem, you change the number for another, the app, on time.
In the bottom menu, search and Touchez Virtual card. In this area you will find number, expiration date and security code. Below you can erase or lock the card.
13. Tag and categorize your expenses to organize your invoice
When you buy something, what is recorded on the invoice is the name of the establishment, which is not always very enlightening (What is Timrecprog? It's TIM's recharge, I didn't know). To arrange this, you Touchez the first large window of the home, where is the current invoice amount.
In the last spend list that appears, touch the spend you want to organize. Touchez the "+ Tag" button to insert a new tag. For my example, I can put "tim", "mobile", "data", etc. Then you can also touch the purple icon above and choose from 12 categories (in this case you would choose "Services"). Touchez change and you're done.
14. Report an expense you did not make
As secure as these systems are, fraud can always happen. If you saw your invoice and found something you didn't spend, touch the spend. In the window that opens, Touchez Report below. Choose the reason for the problem and then the problem with the product by following the onscreen instructions.
Pro Tip: Only do this in case of fraud and security issues. Do not use this feature to cancel any products or services that you actually purchased but no longer want to pay. You may have your card canceled.
15. Anticipate installments and save money
One trick that many are using is to parcel out a purchase even without the intention of paying every month. If you can choose something without interest, opt for installment, and you can save money. A few days after your purchase, touch it on your invoice and then Anticipate below.
You will be presented with a simulation, which shows, by how many installments you will advance, how much money will be saved. Choose the best one and complete the operation. In the case of the image, I had a 1.8% discount anticipating 9 installments of a 10-time installment. You can do this any month, but the discount gets smaller.
16. Pay without password by touching card
One of the latest features of Nubank card is the contacless payment, ie without having to insert or pass the card at the time of payment. Before you can test this function, you must have already made a first machine payment by inserting the card and entering the password.
Then, when the typewriter inserts or touches the card, simply bring the Nubank card closer to the wave symbol on the machine. Wait a beep and you're done, it's paid.
Pro Tip: As you noticed, this is a password-free feature. Anyone with your card can do this, so use the adjust limit and card lock options to lower the chances of problems. You get a notification on your smartphone whenever a payment is unsuccessfully completed or attempted.
17. Visit the site
Did you know that you can access your information not only through the app, but also through a website? Just sign in to account.nubank.com and enter your social security number and password (the app password is at least 8 digits, not the card password, with 4. Open your app and Touchez your name.
From this menu, Touchez Profile and then Site Access. Authorize access to the camera and point it at the QR code on your computer screen. You talk to the customer service, check your bill, lock the card, and more. If you are missing your smartphone to read the QR Code, you can still lock the card and disconnect all your logins.
18. How to request service
If you have not been able to do something directly through the app or have a problem, you can talk to Nubank via chat or email. Touch the first large card in the home, which brings up your invoice, and then in the expense history, drag your finger to the left.
In the side menu, Touchez Help Me. Then Touchez email (or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org) or chat, and chat with one of the attendants. The contact phone number is 0800 591 2117, and you can also try it on the Facebook or Instagram their.
