With these advantages, it shows to offer, financial institutions as well as many business owners are nowadays trying to use modern technology to their advantages thereby making it easier for their prospective clients to make the transactions with ease.
However, with the number of ATM stations increasing in numbers in all parts of the world, it might have boosted business and trade but at the same time also gave the police and administration a reason to worry about. With machines being installed in the malls, road sides, street corners every day, the risks of thefts and burglaries have also gone higher. .
A common way of protecting the money of the clients is by locking the transaction automatically after a certain number of wrong pin number inputs. In this way, even if ones card is stolen, the thief wont to able to get the correct combination and therefore do not get a single dollar from the account of the card holder.
To prevent loots, the cassette in which money is carried to the stations is programmed to shield the money with dye packs if the cassettes are not opened in a proper manner. This method has been highly effective in combating burglars who look to steal the cassettes during delivery to the ATM stations.
Some of the modern day security measures include installation of surveillance cameras both at the entrance and inside the atm machine as well. Some of the countries also use unique customer authentication systems such as finger print and facial recognition systems to make sure that no unauthorized individual gets access to the machines.
