APS Bank ATMs Security Feature

In an effort to protect its customers from the increasing threat of card skimming, APS Bank is in the process of rolling out new security measures, including PIN guards, on its ATM fleet.

"Our aim is to deter criminal activity and allow customers to feel secure whilst using our ATMs", said Jonathan Caruana, APS Bank's Chief Technology Officer.

These PIN guards (as pictured) allow customers to have a clear view of the PIN pad while using an APS ATM but at the same time make the plastic shield opaque when viewed from any other angle. This allows ATM users to comfortably enter their personal information without worrying about being seen.

Should they still detect anything suspicious, customers are being urged to cancel their transaction, not use the ATM and vacate the area.
