Protecting your PIN
You should always:
- memorise the PIN as soon as possible. If you record it, disguise it, so others can’t decipher it
- if you nominate a PIN, use a number that is not obvious or can’t be easily guessed (e.g. don’t use date of birth or driver’s licence number)
You must never:
- tell or let anyone find out your PIN, not even family or friends
- record a PIN on your phone or computer
- keep a record of the PIN with your phone
Other things you must do
- Lock your phone and take any reasonable steps to stop unauthorised use,
- Notify us immediately if your phone is lost or stolen or you suspect your access PIN has become known to someone else, and
- Only install approved applications on your phone.
- Leave your phone unattended and logged into the BDCU Alliance Bank® App.
- Use the BDCU Alliance Bank® App with a phone or device other than a compatible phone.
