- The card to be stopped, including what type of card it is, its number and who issued it

My card is blocked for online use
If you get a message notifying you that your card has been blocked for online use, it means you've entered the wrong PIN three times in a row when logging in. To unblock it, all you have to so is get in touch with your branch. Until then, you can continue to use your card for paying in shops or at payment terminals.
Reactivating your card
Once you've had your credit card or prepaid card stopped, that's
that. A frozen bank card, however, is something that you may be able
to have reactivated. Contact your KBC Bank
branch for help with this.
