How can someone use my debit card without the card?
Debit cards can be used without entering a personal identification number or PIN, in what is known as an “off-line” transaction.
Unlike a credit card, however, if you lose your debit card, a thief can drain your entire bank account (and even your line of credit) — without knowing your PIN.
Can I withdraw money if I lost my card?
No matter how much money you have in the bank, it’s important to safeguard your ATM card. If you lose this card, or if it’s stolen, a thief could use it to make unauthorized withdrawals from your account. You can still get cash while your lost card is being replaced, but you need to visit your local branch to get it.

How does a cardless ATM work?
Cardless ATMs connect to your bank account using an app instead of your debit card, letting you withdraw cash with just your mobile phone.
