Key security issues
Ujjivan Small Finance Bank will provide information on security related news on a periodic basis to keep our customers updated about important developments.
A phishing attack is an online fraud method which involves sending official looking email messages with return addresses, links and imprinting that all appear to come from banks or other reliable sources. Such emails typically contain a link to a fake website and deceive account holders to enter customer names and PIN/Password on the pretense that these details must be updated or changed. Once the customer submits the details, it can be used on legitimate bank sites to take customer’s money.
Nowadays, phishers also use phone (voice phishing) and SMS (Smishing).
It is important that you are suspicious of emails asking for your information like account number, card number, user id, password, PIN etc.
