    • Change your IPIN regularly.

    Dont's

    • Never give your PIN or confidential information over the phone or internet. Never share these details with anyone
    • Don't transfer funds without due validation of the recipient, as funds once transferred cannot be reversed.
    • Don't store sensitive information such as credit card details, mobile banking password and user ID in a separate folder on your phone.
    • Don’t forget to inform the bank about changes in your mobile number to ensure that SMS notifications are not sent to someone else.
