Do you want to know how to protect and secure your GTBank account using the USSD self-service code? If yes, then you are at the right place. Here I’m going to show you
Contemporarily, because of the activities of fraudsters targeting account owners, GTBank has warned customers to desist from certain activities that could expose them to fraud. This is to protect our accounts from being manipulated. However, you can not hold GTBank liable for fraudulent activities, especially outside the banking premises.
Here are a few ways to protect your account
Block your USSD profile
Blocking your USSD profile is a way of protecting an account especially when the customer is suspecting fraud. Once you block your USSD profile, it becomes impossible to move funds from the account using the mobile transfer method. Dial *737*51*74# and follow the instructions to deactivate the USSD profile.
Never Expose your Personal banking details
Banking details should be confidential and should not be shared with anyone. GTBank agents will never call you to disclose your debit card details to disburse or solve any account problem. Therefore, ignore any call or message requesting your account details. This is an efficient way to protect your GTBank account
Protect your Username and Password
Do not share your Username and password when you are using internet banking. Again, never use cheap words as your username and password. It is easy for scammers to remember them.
Do not store your details on your phone
Try to memorize the details in your head to avoid exposing them.
Avoid unwanted Emails and Social media platforms
Do not subscribe to unwanted emails as well as unnecessary social media platforms. Fraudsters launch attacks using unknown links. However, do not regard any email you did not subscribe to.
Never patronize too many POS agents
Never expose your debit card to too many POS agents. Try to have a trusted customer to ensure that your details are not copied
