ATM Use Safety Tips

ATM Safety

Listed below are some standard safety tips for ATM users:

 • Be aware of your surroundings, especially between dusk and dawn. If you notice anything suspicious–a security light out, someone loitering nearby–consider coming back later orusing a supermarket or convenience store ATM.

 . Choose an ATM that is in a well lit and traveled area.

 • If using the ATM at night, take someone with you.

 • Park in a well-lit area as close as possible to the ATM.

 • At a drive-through ATM, be sure the doors are locked and the passenger windows are rolled up.

 • If you withdraw cash, put it away promptly; count it later, in private.

 • Put your ATM card and receipt away promptly; never leave your receipt at the ATM.

 • Keep your PIN secret–don't write it down, and don't share it with anyone you don't trust absolutely. Your PIN provides access to your account.

 • Shield the keypad when entering your PIN to keep it from being observed.

 • Avoid being too regular in your ATM use–don't repeatedly visit the same machine at the same time, the same day of the week, for instance.

Using Your OneCard (Hunter ID) at Hunter

This is a friendly reminder from the Office of the Dean of Students regarding Hunter College's policy on using your OneCard while on campus at Hunter College. These measures are in place for your own safety and that of the Hunter community.

  1. All members of the college community are responsible for having their Hunter OneCard with them while on campus at all times.
  2. Your Hunter OneCard is non-transferrable and may not be used by any other person, for any reason.
  3. Allowing other persons to use your Hunter OneCard to gain entry on to Hunter's campus or to use campus facilities is a violation of Hunter College's policy and may result in that person receiving a summons for Trespassing.
  4. Improper use of your Hunter ID may also result in your card being deactivated.
