Also, the person you trust could be in a great need at some point and your debit card is the only option to his or her money problem solved, at that point your account security is also bridged. Therefore, it is better not to share your PIN with anyone for any reason.

Debit card scammers can go to any length to dupe you for your money and this is majorly by impersonating your bank by sending emails, SMS or phone calls requesting for your PIN. You should always delete, decline or ignore such requests without thinking twice about it because your bank would NEVER request for such information from you.

3. Protect your PIN while using it

Most of the time while the ATM, there are usually people standing behind you and you are not sure if they have wrong motive of spying your PIN or they just want to use the ATM like you. To be sure of this you need to shield your PIN by using your hand or even with your body so that your card details don’t get revealed. When you protect your PIN, you reduce the success rate of card PIN skimmers.

If you must write it down, it is better to save it on your mobile phone in a reverse form so it won’t be easily traced or in any other place that you alone can access and can easily remember.

6. Use different PIN on different cards

In a case where you have different debit cards for different bank accounts, it is ideal and safe to use different PINs so that it would not be easy to crack all cards in case you lose them or they get stolen.
