- Always enter your PIN yourself, rather than
allowing a “helpful” merchant to do it for
you when you’re making a purchase. No legitimate

even if the device you are using has a visor, use your hand
or body to shield the keypad when you enter your PIN.

your wallet and take your transaction record.

records when you no longer need them.
- Change your PIN from time to time, just in
case. This is easy to do at any TD Green Machine or during regular
business hours at a branch.
