Using ATMs safely
Q: What are some things to consider in order to better use ATMs safely?
- Use ATMs with surveillance cameras. T Bank ATMs and those of other financial institutions may be monitored by surveillance cameras, which record activity in the area of the ATM.
- Be aware of people and your surroundings. When you enter or exit an ATM in an enclosed area, be sure you close the entry door completely. Do not open locked ATM vestibule doors for others, or allow any unknown persons to enter the ATM area while you are making your transaction. Authorized customers should have their own access.
- Put away your card and cash. After completing your transaction, secure your card and cash immediately, before exiting the ATM area. Count your cash later, in the safety of your locked car or home. Your ATM card is like cash, so keep it in a safe place.
- Protect your privacy. Shield the ATM keypad with your hand or body while entering your PIN.
