What is a debit card?
A Personal Identification Number (or PIN) is a numeric code used to add an extra layer of security to your checking accounts and debit card transactions. You may be asked to enter your PIN when accessing an ATM or swiping your debit card at a place of business.
How do I select a PIN for my debit card?
Just as you would with alphanumeric passwords, it is important to choose an account PIN that cannot easily be guessed. Since PINs are a 4-digit number, one of the most common mistakes people make is to choose a significant event - such as a birthday or anniversary - as the PIN for your debit card. Choose a non-sequential series of numbers you will be able to remember in the future and be sure to obscure the keypad when entering your PIN in public locations. You will first select your PIN number for your debit card when you call in to activate a new card.
