Your Hellenic Bank cards are a gateway to your accounts. Protect them to keep your accounts safe.

Card Security

Keep the PIN of your card as secret from everyone.

Tip: Use your card for online payments only to reliable sites e.g. choose a site you have done online payments in the past, make sure you visit the official site of the merchant, and read customers' reviews for that site.

Tip: Keep your card safe as you do with your personal belongings.


Stay safe when visiting an ATM

When entering your PIN, always use your hand as a shield.

Make sure the next customer is at a safe distance.

In case an ATM is being surrounded by suspicious individuals, especially at night, avoid using the specific machine. 

Before taking advice from someone standing near an ATM and pretending to work for the Bank, walk in the branch to confirm whether that person is a Bank's employee.

When you finish, quickly put out of sight your card, money and receipt before leaving the ATM.

Always be aware of your surroundings!
