At UBS, we have implemented the best available and latest security solutions to ensure that your financial and personal information is safe and protected from hacking and virus attacks.
However, you also play an important role in reinforcing this security strength to ensure that your online security and account information are not compromised. As a joint effort, UBS recommends that you adopt the following security practices on a day-to-day basis:
PIN and Access Card Security
- Keep your PIN confidential at all times. Do not reveal it to anyone, including UBS staff or law enforcement agents. Nobody at UBS will ever ask you for your PIN.
- Change your PIN regularly. Do not reuse the same PIN over time.
- Do not use the same PIN for different websites, applications or services, particularly when they relate to different entities.
- Dispose of your initial PIN information once you have used it. After memorizing your new PIN, do not write it down or store it anywhere.
- Your PIN should not use the same character more than twice.
- Do not base your PIN on your user-ID, birth date, telephone number, identification number, or any other personally identifiable information.
- Change your PIN immediately if you suspect that someone else knows it or if you suspect that any unauthorized access has occurred.
- Safeguard your Access Card at all times. Do not allow anyone to keep, use or tamper with your Access Card.
- Do not reveal any code generated by your Access Card to anyone.
- Do not divulge the Card number printed on your Access Card to anyone.
