Read the Security guidelines on the help file that
comes with My Safety pin.
When using an outside cash machine ensure no external
devices are attached to it.
Do not allow any one to know your pin number.
Make sure NO ONE is near you when you enter your pin
Ensure you have no spy ware on your computer.
Do not touch the pin number positions on the table.
You could leave a tell tail sign for someone.
Do not point to your pin number position on the table ( in
public at least!).
Do not write down the words - it defeats the whole point!
Keep an eye on the expiry date of your cards and let
your card issuer know you have not received a new one if you are near the
date of expiry but before the start of the new one. Cards are normally
sent out at least a couple of weeks before the expiry date.
Each time you change your pin table print out you should
change the position of your pin number.
Only use the Diagonal Pin placement for non secure options.
For added security do not have your pin number together in
a row or column. I know its easier for you but even adding a small gap in
the middle increases your security greatly.
When you have finished using My Safety Pin close it
immediately and do not leave program open. Using the zoom and random
features could allow a third party to find your pin number!
Use a full or nearly full pin table.
The print header is to help you know which card the
print out belongs to, e.g. "card 2". Under no
circumstances should you put anything in the header which could
comprise the security of the print out.
