Secure your Account

Take precautionary measures by enabling maximum security on the uLink app.

  • Use the privacy settings available to you by enabling Face ID or Touch ID to ensure an additional layer of security. In addition, we also highly recommend setting up 2-step verification on the email address associated with your uLink account.
  • Set a password that is unique. Duplicating passwords across platforms such as email, banking, and social media accounts can compromise your security and lead to identity theft.
  • Consider your password strength. “Password123” may be easy to remember, but need we say that it’s not safe? Hackers like to go for the low-hanging fruit and try the obvious options first. Avoid using your name, address, date of birth, or personal details while setting a password. Instead, use at least eight characters with a combination of lowercase and uppercase letters, numbers, and symbols in your password.
  • Do not share, autosave, or save your password online.
  • Change your password periodically.

Know your Receiver

This may seem obvious, but by only sending money to your closest acquaintances, you significantly reduce the possibility of fraud.

  • Do not send money for the purpose of claiming lottery prizes or other types of rewards with the promise of receiving money.
  • Do not send money to guarantee a loan, debit, or credit card.
  • Do not send money in response to offers made over the internet or the phone, especially when you are not sure of their credibility.
  • Do not send money to a person you don’t know or whose identity you cannot verify.
  • Do not send money to a person who claims to be a relative who needs money for an emergency.
  • Do not send money to pay the IRS or any other government agency that contacts you via phone, email, or message claiming that you owe money to the IRS.

Public Wi-Fi

When it comes to money transfers, it’s best to use your own Wi-Fi or cellular data network. Public Wi-Fi is notoriously vulnerable to hackers and should be avoided at all costs while placing any financial transaction.
