ATM/Debit Card Safety Tips

Card Security
  • Treat your card like cash. Always keep your card in a safe place.
  • Keep your "secret code," or PIN, a secret.
  • Report a lost or stolen card at once.

ATM Security
  • Observe your surroundings before making a transaction.
  • If anyone or anything appears to be suspicious, leave the area at once.
  • If an ATM is obstructed from view or poorly lit, go to another ATM.
  • Take another person with you when using an ATM, especially at night.
  • Minimize time spent at the ATM.
  • Stand between the ATM and anyone waiting to use this terminal.
  • Never count your money while at the ATM.
Drive-Up ATM Security
  • Keep your doors locked, windows up and engine running while in line.
  • Leave enough room between vehicles for a quick exit.
  • Before rolling down the window to use an ATM, observe the entire area.
  • If anyone or anything appears suspicious, drive away at once.
  • If anyone follows you, drive immediately to a crowded, well-lit area and call the police.

Point-of-Sale (POS) Security

  • Never let the cashier or anyone else enter your PIN for you.
  • Block the view of others when using the POS terminal.
  • Be certain the transaction is complete and review your receipt before leaving.
  • If you receive cash back from a transaction, put it away before leaving.
