The chip in the card requires you to enter your Personal Identification Number (PIN) when you make a credit card transaction at stores with chip technology, and no signature is required. So, if your chip card is lost or stolen, it can't be used by unauthorized users (who don't know your PIN) at stores with chip-enabled terminals.
- Do not let anyone else know or use your PIN
- Never write it down. Use your hand or body to shield the keypad when you enter your PIN.
- Make transactions only at secure locations. If in doubt, don't use your Mashreq Al Islami Debit Card
- When a transaction is complete, put your card back in your wallet and take your transaction record
