If someone is standing close to you ask them to move away. Then shield the keypad with your hand or whatever you can. Make sure your card is in a safe place at all times. If you do not use your card often, check at least once a week to make sure it is where it belongs and has not been lost or misplaced. If you give your card to a friend or relative, you are responsible for any and all transactions they do.
