Managing your Swipe PIN

Adrian (Melbourne) -

Changing your PIN

As it stands, the four digit PIN assigned to your CoinJar Swipe cannot be customised either prior to ordering, or after you've received your card. For this reason, keeping your PIN secure is quite important. It's recommended that you destroy your PIN documentation once you've memorised it.

If your Swipe card is ever lost or stolen, or you suspect your PIN has been compromised, you should immediately follow the instructions outlined in our article, Replacing your Swipe Card.
