ATM Security Tips
- Prepare for your transactions at home (for instance, by filling out a deposit slip) to minimize your time at the ATM or night depository facility.
- Do not leave your ATM receipts at the ATM or night depository facility because they may contain important account information.
- Protect the secrecy of your Personal Identification Number (PIN). Do not share your PIN number or write it down where it can be discovered.
- Prevent others from seeing you enter your PIN by using your body to shield their view.
- Do not accept assistance from anyone you don’t know when using an ATM or night depository facility.
- Do not wear expensive jewelry or take other valuables to the ATM. This is an added incentive to the assailant.
- Never count cash at the machine or in public. Wait until you are in your car or another secure place.
- Closely monitor your bank statements, as well as your balances, and immediately report any problems to your bank.
- Visually inspect the ATM for possible skimming devices. Potential indicators can include sticky residue or evidence of an adhesive used by criminals to affix the device, scratches, damaged or crooked pieces, loose or extra attachments on the card slot, or noticeable resistance when pressing the keypad.
