How to protect my Union bank account

Do you want to know how to protect and secure your Union bank account using the USSD self-service code? If yes, then you are at the right place. Here I’m going to show you ways to secure your account from being manipulated.

Contemporarily, because of the activities of fraudsters targeting account owners, Union bank 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 Union bank liable for fraudulent activities, especially outside the banking premises.

Here are a few ways to protect your account

Block or deactivate 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. You just need a mobile phone with a network. Send *826# and follow the instructions to deactivate your USSD profile.

Never Expose your Personal banking details

Banking details should be confidential and should not be shared with anyone. Bank 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 bank 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 because it is easier for scammers to remember them.

Do not store your details on your phone

Try to memorize the details 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. This is because unknown links expose people’s personal details such as emails to the host. 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
