Your UPI app Stay up to date:
Update your UPI app from time to time to protect yourself from cyber criminals. To enhance cyber security, companies add new features with each update. If so, keep the UPI app up to date.
Never give a PIN to receive payment
In any UPI app, the user does not have to enter his / her PIN to get paid. So be careful if someone asks you to give your PIN when sending money.
Beware of fraudulent calls
Cybercriminals do not try to extort money from people by sending links, they call users directly and ask for their passwords, PINs, etc. Banks will not ask for such details in the call. So do not fall prey to such calls.
Do not click on a link or enter a PIN
Nowadays people are getting attractive offers in mail and WhatsApp, especially during the festive season. Such links prompt you to provide your PIN and other details in order to receive a ‘gift’ or ‘cashback’. So be careful not to click on such links.
Set a strong password
Set a strong password when registering for the UPI service. Pin pin so no one knows. This was reported by a Hindi website.
