Activate ATM Withdrawal Notifications with BPI
The Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) is now letting their client manually enroll their accounts for ATM withdrawal notification.
As a measure to protect clients from alarming unauthorized ATM withdrawals from BPI machines, wherein culprits can know your PIN by replacing the keypad on the ATM, BPI offers ATM withdrawal notification through Email or SMS. You will receive an instant notification via email or text message if an amount of 5k, 10k, 15k or 20k is withdrawn from your ATM. You can set your desired amount during your registration.
If you have a BPI account, just simply follow the step indicated on the photo above. While this may not stop any further ATM skimming, it’s better to have registered for ATM withdrawal notification to monitor your account. We are yet to know if the notification feature also applies with debit transactions.
