Activating your Wells Fargo credit card can be done online, over the phone or via the Well Fargo mobile apps. All three options are safe and secure.

Here’s how to activate your Wells Fargo credit card:

  • Online: Log in to your Wells Fargo account and navigate to the activation page. Simply verify your identity by entering your personal information (address, Social Security Number) in order to authenticate yourself and activate your card.

Once completed you’ll be able to create a username and password to access everything online.
  • By phone: Call Wells Fargo at 1-877-294-6933. Enter your card number as well as the personal information requested when prompted (Card number, SSN, Address etc).
  • Wells Fargo App: Open the app store for iOS or Android and Download “Wells Fargo Mobile” app. Log in to the app using the same username and password as your online account, select your card from your list of accounts and activate it.
