Are you tired of carrying around that wad of cash in your wallet or purse? Maybe it’s time to check into finding a safer way to protect your money by getting a debit card. If you’re 13 years old or older, you can get your own debit card which comes with many security features to keep your money safe and makes it easy to start tracking expenses. Plus, you can pull cash out with no surcharge at almost any credit union ATM.
Having a debit card is one great way to protect your money, however, there are a couple of tips that will help maximize the security of your money.
- Don’t Share Personal Information – This can include your account number, your debit card pin number or your online banking password. Always remember to keep this information safe and don’t share it with anyone.
- Shop on Secure Websites – When shopping online, look for the padlock symbol at the beginning of the URL. This symbol lets you know that you are shopping on a secure website and that your information is safe.
- Card Control – With the release of our upcoming mobile app next month, members will now have the power to shut their debit card off or on with just the touch of a button. Being able to turn your card off makes it so that there are no unauthorized transactions sneaking out of your bank account.
