Phishers will try to steal your bank account information in a wide variety of ways. They use the itsme® name and logo very convincingly, so it’s sometimes difficult to distinguish real from fake.
A few tips :
- itsme® will never ask you in an email, by text message, or by phone to reactivate your account, to update your app or to re-enter your bank details because of a strange login or activity.
- Do you need to reactivate your account? If so, always start via the itsme® app or from the website (https://www.itsme.be/en/); never follow a link in an email or text message.
- Never share your bank details over the phone or via (a link in) an email or text message.
