Safer than cash

When it comes to peace of mind, there’s no better way to pay than with your payment card. There’s a whole range of safety tools and security features built into your card. So whether you’re shopping in a store, online or on your mobile device, you can do it all with confidence.

Your network has you covered

When you use your payment card, you’re supported by a payment network that’s designed to be secure and smart.  

Keeping you protected

Compared to cash or cheque, payment cards are the safest way to pay. Their multi-layer security safeguards you against unauthorised transactions. Payment cards also leave a trail, unlike cash, which financial institutions can follow to trace and recover your money. But you also play an important part when it comes to your safety, by monitoring your transactions, keeping your card safe and your PIN secret.  


Everyday Protect

You can’t put a price on peace of mind. EMV chip technology provides a layer of security for your transactions, and liability protection reduces the risks of unauthorised transactions.

Online Protect

Online security tools, especially SecureCode/One-Time Password (OTP), keep you safe while you shop online. Additionally, in the event that you do not receive what you paid for online, you can have your money refunded by the merchant.

Travel Protect

While you’re overseas, many safety features work hard to keep your money safe. EMV chip technology and your ATM PIN are your first line of defense, while SMS alerts can keep you informed about your transactions, 24/7. And in the event you lose your card, card replacement services can help get your life back on track.

Security tips to protect yourself

Keep your ATM PIN private

Never share your ATM Pin with anyone. If you've forgotten your PIN or think it may have been compromised, ask your bank for a new one.

Beware of phishers

Phishers try to gain sensitive information from you, like your payment card number, PIN, username or password. Don’t respond to them. Instead, call your bank to make a report.

Check your statements

Regularly monitor your bank and card statements. Call your bank if you spot any unusual transactions.


Look for your network’s SecureCode logo

Look out for online merchants that support SecureCode. SecureCode ensures that online transactions are private between you and your bank. It also verifies that you authorised the payment.

Sign up for SMS alerts

SMS alerts let you know whenever there’s activity in your accounts, so it’s a good idea to register all your cards for them.

Be familiar with your card issuer’s policies

Every bank has its own safeguards in place for your peace of mind. Talk to your bank to find out what they are.
