NOW It’s easier than ever to create your own “preferred” PIN

Your PIN is necessary for withdrawing cash with your card and, increasingly, for paying at card terminals. Would you like to have a PIN that is easy to remember? Then just change it to one that you prefer.

For holders of Visa or Mastercard credit cards from card complete, it’s now easier than ever to change a PIN. You can create your new PIN at indoor ATMs of all Austrian banks (except BAWAG) and at more than 600 Payment Services Austria GmbH (PSA) ATMs. These “Bankomats” can be recognized by the familiar blue and green logo.

You can find a suitable ATM near you with the search function on the PSA website (see the orange box on this page).
