Somewhere you do not withdraw money from 'unsecured ATM'!
 
JAN 14 (WTN) - You must have used the ATM to withdraw money. But if you do not use the ATM carefully, then for your information, let us know that due to this inadvertence, your bank account may be empty. Yes, you must have gone shocked after reading it, but it is true that you need to be very careful while using the ATM. First of all, our advice to you is that any ATM you are withdrawing money from, check that it is safe or not.

For your information, let us know that the biggest risk in ATM is due to the cloning of the ATM card. You must be wondering what the card cloning is after all. So for your information, let us know that card cloning means to get the complete information about your card and make a new card exactly the same. Actually, hackers breach the data of any user from the card slot in the ATM machine. To do this, hackers place a device in the card slot of the ATM machine that scans the entire information of your card. After getting the card information, the hackers breach your data from Bluetooth or any other wireless device.
 
So if you want to avoid card cloning then you need to take some precautions. Explain that to get full access to your debit card (ATM card), hackers must have the PIN number of your debit card. Actually, hackers can track the pin number with a camera. So to avoid this, whenever you enter your PIN number in the ATM, hide it with the other hand so that its image cannot be captured in the CCTV camera.

At the same time, when you go to the ATM, it is also important to pay attention to the card slot of the ATM. If you feel that there has been tampering in the ATM card slot, or if the slot is loose or there is something wrong then do not use it at that time. Explain that through the card slot, the hackers are successful in cloning your card, due to which they can create another card like your card and empty your bank account.

While withdrawing money from the ATM, it is also important to pay attention to the light in the card slot when placing it. Explain that if the green light is blinking in the card slot, only the ATM is safe. But if the red light is blinking in the card slot, or if there are none of the lights then do not use such ATM, because there may be something wrong with it.

If you follow these precautions while using the ATM, then your card can be prevented from cloning. Actually, remote ATMs are targeted by hackers where there is less congestion. We advise you to use the ATM located in the bank premises or in a crowded area only to withdraw money because it is very difficult for hackers to clone the cards from the ATMs of these places.
