PNB net banking: Want a safe mobile banking experience? This is what you should do
PNB net banking through mobile banking often leads to problems for the customers in case the mobile is stolen or lost and they don't use a PIN for mobile SIM.
A smartphone user can get into a lot of trouble if the phone is lost. It can give access to all your data, unless you have put a PIN for SIM card. This is exactly what Punjab National Bank has advised its customers to do to avoid trouble. The bank has asked all mobile phone users to use PIN (Personal Identification Number) for their SIM card. It negates any chances of use of the SIM by someone else in case the mobile phone is lost or stolen. The Punjab National Bank tweeted in this regard from its official Twitter handle on April 25.
"Use a #PIN (Personal Identification Number) for your #mobile SIM card to prevent people from making use of it when stolen. Follow simple safety tips and enjoy #ZimmedarMobileBanking," the tweet read.

This PNB tweet is in regard to the banking frauds taking place due to some lack of awareness by the PNB net banking users or mobile banking users who don't use a PIN for their Mobile SIM. The public sector bank or PSB has been taking various majors to contain the money loot from its customers by the cyber criminals or its customers facing any cyber crime. One day later on April 26th, it had tweeted an advisory in which it urged PNB customers to avoid searching PNB branch number, customer care number, support number which is not an authenticated bank's number. These numbers may be of the fraudsters that may trap customers into any kind of cyber crime. The PNB instead advised its customers to log in directly to its official website www.pnbindia.in.
