Mobile payments and banking are safe — especially with Paytm, as we use world-class security and encryption to keep your data as safe as possible. However, your behaviour and actions are probably more important than how you access your Paytm account.
In many ways, mobile payments and banking are safer than carrying a physical wallet and taking wades of cash to your nearest bank branch. However, it is important to remember that fraudsters can still get enough information to access your account from various places.
These 3 short and simple security tips can keep you safe every time you use your favorite Paytm Wallet, Paytm Payments Bank account, Paytm Payments Bank Debit Card and Paytm BHIM UPI:
- Always verify and install the authentic Paytm app from the Google Play Store and Apple Store
- Add your email and verify to get notified of any untoward or unauthorised action on your account.
- In the event you misplace or lose your phone, please get the SIM blocked immediately and log yourself out from web.
Paytm Payments Bank:
- Check all official bank emails and transaction alerts sent via SMS and email for unauthorized transactions
