How do I activate my child's Greenlight card?

When your child's card arrives, follow these simple steps to activate it right away:

  1. Open your Greenlight app. From your Parent Dashboard, you should see a notification prompting you to activate your child’s card.
  2. Tap on the notification and input the card's expiration date in the app to activate it.
  3.  Next, visit your child's dashboard by clicking their square at the top of your Parent Dashboard.
  4. Select "Manage Card" then "Set debit card PIN."
  5. After the PIN is set, your physical card is activated and ready to use! 

Don’t see a notification? Activating a replacement card because yours is damaged or expired?

  1. Navigate to your child’s dashboard.
  2. Tap “Manage Card” to open their card management page.
  3. Select "Activate a new card", and you will be prompted to enter the expiration date of your child’s Greenlight card to activate it.
  4.  Select “Reset debit card PIN” to activate physical card if a PIN has not yet been set for the child.
