WesBanco Debit Cards offer a safe, convenient way to pay for your everyday purchases.
Plus, they come with EMV chip-enabled technology and Visa’s Zero Liability Protection.*

Here are some important tips to help keep your debit card information safe:

  • Be sure to keep your debit card secure. Keep it in the same place in your wallet so you will know if it is missing immediately.
  • Memorize your PIN for your debit card; never write it down.  Additionally, choose a PIN that is not traceable to you or easy to decipher.
  • When using an ATM, shield your PIN –  always assume someone or something might be watching.
  • Never give out your debit card number over the phone unless you initiated the call and are sure the recipient of the information is legitimate.
  • Be sure to review your transactions and report any unauthorized transactions to WesBanco immediately.
  • Time is essential when it comes to reporting a lost or stolen debit card; be sure to contact WesBanco immediately.
