Get secure, scam aware and protected.

Protecting yourself from identity theft and fraud is super important in today’s digital landscape. Here are some easy tips from ME to keep you safe.

Protect Yourself.

Be Scam Aware.

Beware of sharing your PIN or internet banking details and never disclose personal information unless it can be verified.

Use strong, unique passwords.

Avoid common passwords, use a mix of characters and create unique passwords for each account.

Beware of phishing attempts.

Watch out for suspicious emails or URLS and contact ME to verify any unexpected requests.

Monitor your accounts regularly.

Review transactions and keep a close eye on your bank statements for any unauthorised transactions.

Stay secure online.

Use secure networks and beware of requests to share a one-time passcode and verification codes. This can be over the phone, or via a web pae that you have been invited to visit through an unsolicited call, SMS or email. Never share verification codes including to someone you believe might be us.

Keep devices up to date.

Regularly update your operating system, web browser, and antivirus software. Enable automatic updates where possible.

How ME is protecting you.

Fraud Monitoring and Detection.

ME’s fraud detection systems keep a close watch on your account for signs of unauthorised activity. If we spot something that doesn’t add up, we’ll investigate right away and take action to maintain the safety of your account.

Secure online banking.

ME’s online banking platform is built with strong security features to safeguard your information and transactions. We're always updating and improving our systems to stay one step ahead of potential threats.

Double security with 2FA for ME Go.

We've added an extra layer of protection to ME Go with Two-Factor Authentication (2FA). This means even if someone gets ahold of your password, they still can't get into your account without the extra verification step.

Joining forces against fraud.

ME works closely with law enforcement and regulatory agencies to crack down on fraudsters and protect our customers.

Disclosing personal information.

  • Do’s: Use long passwords with a mix of letters, numbers, symbols, and upper and lower cases.
