Barclays customers can now 'switch off' spending
Barclays has become the first High Street bank to allow its customers to "Switch off" certain types of spending on their debit cards. Customers are not able to block specific retailers, but instead can decide which categories of spending are allowed. Customers who want to select any of the categories above can do so via the Barclays app. For the moment, the tool only applies to spending on debit cards, although it should apply to credit cards at a later date. The mobile bank Starling allows customers to block spending on gambling sites, or - unlike the Barclays tool - with specific retailers.
