Even though Paytm is widely used, many people still have a question. Is Paytm safe? So in this blog, we will discuss tips to use Paytm safely.

Tips To Use Paytm Safely

1. Download authentic Paytm app:

You must verify and install the genuine Paytm app from the Google Play Store and Apple Store. Fraudsters create fake apps to cheat people, so you have to be very careful.

 2. Use app password:

To keep the money in the wallet safe, Paytm has launched the app password feature for its wallet. This feature ensures that nobody can transfer money from your Paytm wallet without permission. You need to first set a password for your phone. To protect your phone, you must go to the phone's Settings > Security > Screen Lock > Choose Screen Lock. Once you are done, you must open Paytm and click on My Security Settings > Manage App Lock > Secure access to Paytm.

3. QR code

You must use QR codes for accepting and making payments as they are unique and encrypted codes, which ensure secure payments.

4. Don't save your card details

It is advisable not to save card details while recharging your wallet. Even though it is quite inconvenient, doing so ensures the safety of your wallet.

5. Avoid keeping too much money in the wallet

Don't keep too much money in your Paytm wallet, because if your wallet is hacked, you will lose money. It is good to load the wallet with a small amount of money.

6. Add your email

You must add your email ID and verify it. By doing so, you can be notified on any unauthorized activity in your account.

How to secure your Paytm wallet when you lose your money?

This is what you must do when you lose your mobile phone.

1. If your mobile is lost or stolen, the first thing you must do is get your SIM card blocked by contacting the mobile operator.

2. Once you are done blocking your SIM card, you must call Paytm Payments Bank helpline number from any other mobile number and follow the given steps:

  • Select the lost phone option.
  • Select the option where you can enter a different number from which you are calling.
  • Enter the lost mobile number and select the option to log out from all devices.

Doing so will log you out from all Paytm sessions and the person who has your lost phone cannot login.
