Tip on protecting your EFTPOS terminals

  • Make sure that your terminals are kept at a secure location, i.e. not easily accessible by customers or strangers.
  • Ensure your terminal is under supervision at all times.
  • Lock the EFTPOS screen if you need to be away from the register area.
  • Ensure that only authorised employees have access to your terminals.
  • Ensure your terminals are securely locked and not visible for theft during non-operating hours.
  • Avoid having security cameras at locations which can capture you entering passwords and customer card details.
  • Check your terminals periodically to ensure that the terminal hasn’t been tempered with and components stay intact and remain unbroken.
  • Check your premise and surrounding periodically to ensure there’s no new or unknown items of electronic equipment connected to/close the EFTPOS terminal, e.g. hidden cameras, card skimming devices, etc.
