How To Secure Your G-Money Account
Security is one thing we cannot joke with even in the least of all situations.
When it comes to money and financial issues, security is a topmost priority for most people.
This is not any different in the case of the G-money accounts. As an account holder and a subscriber to the platform, one needs to secure their account from security threats.
The key to your G-money wallet is your Personal Identification Number (PIN). This is the code you use to authorize all transactions in your account.
To secure your account completely, do the following:
- Keep your PIN in your head only. Do not share with anyone except you are 100% sure that you can trust them.
- Do not reply to any online survey asking you to enter your G-money PIN Code.
- Do not save your G-Money PIN on your mobile phone.
- Only authorize transactions you can actually confirm knowledge of.
The digitization of the world’s economy and the Ghanaian economy, in particular, is a forward trend which would only grow bigger and bigger by the days.
Meaning, subsequently, all forms of digital payments available now would evolve into even better payment systems which would meet the demands of the moment.
GCB Bank’s G-money is leading the pack for the new age of digital payments in Ghana.
As important as the G-money service is to Business owners and the general Ghanaian populace, it is also important for users to secure their accounts from criminals.
There have been several forms of criminal activities regarding the operation of Mobile Money services in Ghana. Most of which are fraudulent activities.
Majority of these can only be perpetrated when the person has access to your PIN.
