Credit cards are increasingly sought after by criminals. Indeed, with the help of Covid, cash is no longer the default means of payment for many individuals. They are gradually being replaced by blue cards.
For outlaws after your money, it is certainly much easier to use cash stolen from a passerby’s pocket than to extract your savings using your bank card. But the gain is much more attractive: the sums available on your accounts generally far exceed those which you put physically in your purse.
The credit card code is its main security measure. Generally, this code is randomly assigned to users by their bank, but it is often possible to change it. Choosing this code is therefore of great importance for your financial security!
You must at all costs avoid basing your code on personal information, such as your date of birth, wedding, or even the birthday of your parents. It is far too easy to find these kinds of details of your private life online these days.
Recycling your passwords is also a very bad idea. Thus, do not use as a bank card code a combination of numbers already present in other of your passwords. Finally, it seems obvious that you should above all not write down the said code in your wallet… The ideal being to remember it, and not to write it down anywhere.
Certain four-digit combinations are particularly popular, and are therefore the first to be attempted by thieves. Conversely, there are very little used combinations, but it seems illogical to opt for codes promoted on the internet as being particularly solid, when thieves will be the first to go looking for them.
Planet has therefore listed for you the 9 most common combinations according to L’Union, not to be used as bank codes!
