Are you an Access Bank customer looking for information on how to block or deactivate your ATM card but are unsure of the steps to take if your mobile devices are lost or stolen? If you suspect that your Access bank ATM Card has been hacked, you must immediately try to block the card to prevent any loss of cash.
Using the USSD approach you can disable your Access Bank ATM card. Alternatively, you can utilize Internet banking or the Access Bank mobile app to disable your compromised ATM Card. However, you’ll need to have your Access Bank “Username and Password” and an Authentication PIN or an Access Bank Token to utilize either the app or online banking.
Due to the rise in fraudsters posing as bank employees, Access Bank will never request your BVN, full card PAN, PIN, mobile app activation code, OTP, or password as these details are already easily available to the bank via its database.
