Detect Credit Card Skimmers

Our app can profile specific Bluetooth configurations in order to detect Bluetooth enabled credit card skimmers. Typically these may be installed on gas pumps or found installed on point-of-sale systems or ATMs.

You can use our app when you either add a device in My Device (My Devices ➟ "+ Add New Devices or Beacon") or in the Card Skimmer Detection area (Card Skimmer Detection ➟ "Search Skimmers"). Either of these options kicks of a scan for a new device and uses our technology to profile and detect Bluetooth enabled credit card skimmers.

We profile known good devices added to our app and compare those against known signatures for known credit card skimmers. We'll display all found devices along with the appropriate icon describing what we found. For normal devices, you'll see a regular icon. If we detect an unrecognized device, we'll display a yellow caution symbol. detect a credit card skimmer, we'll display a hacker icon. We will then use the GPS location of your device to display the hacker icon on the map.
