You may be able to get a Capital One instant card number after you’re approved. But you’ll need to download the Capital One mobile app in order to see it. You can download the app on both iOS and Android mobile devices. However, you can only see your new Capital One card’s details through the app if you have an existing Capital One credit card account before you apply. To log in to the mobile app, use the details from your Capital One online account.
