Unity Bank Plc has introduced a new code on its USSD platform that puts the customer in control of his bank account against any e-Banking fraud.
The new code, which is *7799*9*Phone Number #, allows customers to block access to their bank accounts. At that a customer is able to prevent and protect his bank account from unauthorised access using any mobile device if fraud is suspected.
With the new feature of the bank’s USSD platform, bank customers can initiate the new code and block the account from a third-party mobile device.
To unblock the bank account, customers can walk into any branch of Unity Bank closest to them and request reactivation. Customers are thus able to exercise unlimited control with the new code as the account blockade can be initiated from any phone to prevent any unauthorised transaction or access to the bank account.
This feature offers full control to Unity Bank customers to protect themselves from scams, secure transactions, and puts the customers well ahead in control of their transactions.
According to Funwa Akinmade, Directorate Head, E-Business, Retail & SME Banking, protecting the bank’s assets including customer’s Bank account remains a top priority for the Bank in the face of rising cyber-security threats.
