There’s a new way for bad guys to steal your ATM pin code using an iPhone with a thermal imaging camera that fits directly onto the phone’s screen.
How do you safeguard your PIN codes from getting stolen from thermal cameras? Here’s a simple solution, after you enter your PIN code, rest your hand over the whole keypad, covering all the numbers for a couple of seconds. This makes the thermal image read as just a blob of color, “erasing” the numbers you just pushed.
Also, do you have a keypad lock on your home or office? Be sure to cover all the numbers after entering your access code, just in case someone is following you and wants to gain access behind you.
