There are multiple UPI platforms offering great service in India. PayTM, Google Pay, PhonePe, BHIM are a few of them which have gained popularity since the beginning of the pandemic. As the lockdown began and online shopping became popular, people began using these services more frequently. But with the rise of usage came the rise of crime and a lot of sophisticated criminals have begun targeting smartphones to hack into these apps and steal people’s money. A good way to protect yourself from these incidents is to frequently change your Google Pay UPI PIN.
Google Pay or GPay allows users to quickly make a transaction to another person (which is called peer to peer or P2P transaction), to an online website or offline retail store (which is called peer to merchant or P2M transaction). The Google Pay PIN Code is the access key that allows users to confirm the transaction. It is a six digit password containing numbers from 0-9. For security reasons, it is advised to never use passwords that are related to the user such as date of birth, phone number, Aadhaar Card number or a string of consecutive numbers like 123456. Always choose a random string of numbers that is difficult to guess. With that being said, check below to find out how to change your UPI PIN code in GPay.
