Google Pay: In terms of digital payment apps, Google Pay is among the most widely used. It’s an extremely easy-to-use and safe payment tool that has quickly ingrained itself into our daily routine. Unlike other digital wallets, Google Pay allows payments to be made directly into bank accounts. It also facilitates the sending and receiving of money. So there’s no longer any need to worry about money coming into wallets and then having to transfer it into bank accounts. In this article, we will tell you about the precautions that you must take in order to keep yourself safe after linking your bank account(s) to Google Pay.

Precautions to take after linking your bank account to Google Pay

Avoid clicking on suspicious links

Scammers frequently share links that require users to make a payment or enter personal or financial data.

Do not share OTP

Never give out your UPI PIN to anybody, not even bank representatives. A PIN or OTP is never requested by a bank.

Beware of fake/malicious apps

To prevent falling prey to phishing attacks, download only official UPI apps from official app stores like the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

Check SMS notifications

Always check your SMS notifications, particularly after you’ve finished a financial transaction. Pay close attention to any unexpected or unauthorised deductions.

Avoid downloading unnecessary apps

When asked by strangers, never download screen-sharing or SMS-forwarding apps without first making sure you know what they want. Proceed with caution and confirm that these applications are required.
