Protect your card

Cover the CVV number and a portion of the card number on the back to prevent unauthorized copying. Be cautious when handing over your card to others.

Phishing scams awareness

Educate yourself about common phishing scams and tactics to avoid falling victim to them.

Only download mobile apps from official and trusted sources to avoid malicious software.

Screen lock

Set up a secure screen lock (e.g., PIN, pattern, biometric) on your mobile device to prevent unauthorized access.
