Do You Bank On Mobile? You Are At Risk Till You Take These Actions.

E.AOmolaju 1d

Opening this article might just be the difference between losing all your money and being protected.

Before we start, here's a true life story I read recently about a man that banks with his mobile...

"My name is Taye. I was coming back from work one faithful day, when something happened.

My phone was stolen. This wasn't a big deal since I was already thinking of changing the phone due to the many issues it had as a result of its age.

So I continued on my way home. When I got home, I opened my laptop to do some work and the I saw the unexpected!

i saw several debit alert emails from my bank! And before I knew what was happening, my account was completely empty! I almost ran mad, crying very seriously..."

Today, everything is becoming cashless.

And mobile banking is the future of transaction!

But without taking proper precautions, banking on your phone can even be more risky than carrying cash.

Let's take a look at how we can make banking safer for all of us.

1| Have Only One Account Linked To Your Phone:

Many people make the mistake of having all their bank accounts and apps on the same phone.

THIS IS WRONG AND SHOULD BE STOPPED!!!!

If your phone ever got stolen, this could spell trouble as you could lose everything in one hour, no matter how much you have!

Instead link your to one bank account alone.


2| Don't Keep All Money In One Account:

Have you ever heard the saying, "Don't put all your eggs in one basket."?

That applies here more than ever!

It is not enough to have just one account linked to your phone. You must also make sure that account doesn't have too much or all your money in it!

Keep tiny amounts like ₦5,000 - ₦20,000 in the account and make sure it doesn't exceed more than you can do without!


3| Use App-Lock:

If you bank using an application like the ones in the top of the article. It is not enough that you have a password that unlocks your phone!

Get an app that locks specific applications on your phone.

Latest versions of Android phones can do this without downloading any other app. Simply use two fingers to slide up on the home screen to add apps to app-lock.

Older phones will need you to download a separate app. Search "app locker" in your Appstore and download the one of your choice!


4| Use Opay Instead:

Opay is an mobile banking app developed by Opera Software.

What makes Opay special is the fact that you don't need a bank account.

Opay uses your phone number and can only use the cash you put in the platform.

So even if your phone was stolen, your real bank account can remain safe.

Make sure that you don't register your ATM card with the app though!


4| Call The Bank When You Get Robbed Immediately!

It doesn't matter whether they stole your ATM card or mobile phone. Immediately call your bank to report the case.

The bank will temporarily freeze your account till they can dismiss your phone number from the account.

Many make the mistake of shouting like hungry children instead of calling the bank.

Be fast. Every second matters!
