Duress PIN

Do you think it would be a good idea/possible to have an extra PIN to use when under duress?

I’m not sure what it could/should do? Perhaps freeze your card so no further transactions will work, or even call the local authorities with your position!

Any thoughts? Does anyone else provide a similar service?


iI has been suggested before in both US and Canada but I am not aware of it ever having been implemented anywhere.

PS…PIN stands for Personal Identity Number so saying Pin Number means Personal Identity Number Number :joy:

I definitely don’t want a Personal Identity Number Number!


Just remember guys - it’s very important not to share your personal PIN number on the internets.

Thank god you said that - I was about to let everyone know mine!
