Here's How You Can Secure Your Card from Fraud

January 12, 2018

Have you ever been so afraid of losing your cards that you leave most of them safe and secure at home? Or maybe you’ve already experienced losing one and had gone through an effortful process to block your card? Perhaps you’re also very terrified of hearing news of a breach in your bank’s online security or of ATM issues?

If you’ve answered yes to all these questions, then you’re a certified paranoid card user.

This paranoia is most of the time what hinders us from going into online banking. We’re afraid of the threats to our security and the time-consuming procedures it takes for us to recover or protect our accounts.

What you’re probably unaware of is that online banking truly is safer and more convenient than traditional banking especially with a security feature like the Lock and Unlock.

The "Lock and Unlock"

This unique security feature allows you to easily lock and unlock your Debit or Prepaid card to protect your funds by restricting any transactions, whether it’s withdrawal, point-of-sale purchase, fund transfer or online payment.

The great thing about the Lock and Unlock feature is that you can do so at any time and as long as you need to, to keep yourself protected. It doesn’t take much effort to do this too; simply click the “ATM Card Lock” on your mobile or online account dashboard, and then lock your card by encoding your PIN. Unlocking it is just as easy and hassle-free.

There’s no need to go about complicated processes to lock and unlock your card, such as calling the bank’s customer care to do it for you which would take up so much time — time you could have saved by just doing it yourself.

This makes it fast and convenient to guard yourself against card fraud, misplacement and theft anywhere around the world, especially now when cyber hackers are finding newer and more advanced ways to steal sensitive information from card users even without the physical card in their possession.

It’s this kind of technological advancement we need to combat these evolving cyber hackers, and the kind that we should definitely be in control of ourselves. No need to rely on third parties to protect us; with the Lock and Unlock feature, keeping our funds safe and secure lies right at our own fingertips!

Online banking really is convenient, easy-to-use and easy-to-understand. Make your life hassle-free and much more secure by enrolling in an online bankingt today. Visit RCBC Online Banking for more information on how to start!
