ATM Safety Tips

  • Keep your PIN number a secret. Never write it down or share it with anyone –not even family members.
  • Be aware of your surroundings, particularly at night. Make sure the ATM is free of sight obstructions. If you observe suspicious persons or circumstances, do not use the machine.
  • Have your ATM card ready and in your hand as you approach the ATM.
  • Use your hand to “shield” the ATM keypad as you enter your PIN. Often, criminals attempt to capture your PIN using a tiny camera attached to the ATM.
  • Always take your receipts or transaction records with you.
  • Do not count or visually display any money you received from the ATM. Immediately put your money into your pocket or purse and count it later.
  • If you are using a drive-up ATM, be sure passenger windows are rolled up and all doors are locked. If you leave your car and walk to the ATM, lock your car.
