To keep your money and your account safe, we need to work together. Read on to find out more.
These are some important safety guidelines. Make them a good habit. Something that you automatically do at all times:
- Your login codes and other security features are the key to your money. Keep them strictly to yourself. Do not share them with anyone else and never use them anywhere but in our official apps.
- To keep your codes safe let nobody peek over your shoulder when you use the bunq app. Especially when you are in a public place.
- Your cards are yours. Do not let them be used by anyone else but you.
- Protect your devices well; they are the gate to your account. Set at least one form of screen lock for your device and don’t leave them unattended.
- We update our apps to make them as secure as possible. Therefore, regularly upload the latest version of our apps.
- A clean (no illegal software) and up to date operating systems of your devices helps to keep them safe from criminals.
- Check your account at least once every two weeks.
- When you notice an irregularity or something that puzzles you then let us know as soon as possible. We may give you instructions to keep you safe; please follow these instructions. But we will never ask for your codes.
