Text version

The infographic “Don’t share your PIN—Protect yourself from financial abuse” shows an elderly man looking at his bank card and wondering about the various people he could share his PIN with. The infographic shows a chart of the people the elderly man might deal with on a daily basis, with a big red X by their image, stating that he should not share his PIN with these people.

Should you share your PIN with anyone?

Whether it’s your family, a bank teller, a store clerk, or a telemarketer, the only person that should know your PIN is you!

While your bank should must protect you from fraud, it is your responsibility to never share your PIN.
