  6. Once you have agreed to the Terms & Conditions, tap "Accept and Continue"
  7. Type in the last four digits of your card number. You can find these on the back of your Acorns debit card. Then tap "Set Debit Card Pin"
  8. Set your PIN and tap "Card Features"
  9. Retype your PIN for confirmation and tap "Activate Debit Card"
