Protect your EBT card information
Here are some tips to help prevent electronic theft (skimming and phishing).
The ebtEDGE website and mobile app are the only safe places to manage your benefits.
ebtEDGE login page in your browser for quick access. Download the app on the
Apple App Store or get it on
Google Play. Avoid using any other website or app to check benefits.
Beware of social media scams.
Only trust social media posts and messages from
ODHS official accounts. We will never ask for your benefits card information on social media.
Freeze your card right after each use and unfreeze it before you make purchases.
Cardholder.ebtEDGE.com or use the ebtEDGE mobile app. Look for "Freeze Card" under "Account Services."
Block purchases made outside of Oregon and online purchases.
Cardholder.EBTedge.com or use the ebtEDGE mobile app. Look for “Protect My Account" under “Account Services." You can remove the blocks later if needed.
Keep your PIN secret.
Don't share your PIN with anyone outside your household. Cover the keypad when you enter your PIN on a machine.
Check the activity on your EBT account regularly.
If you see any purchases you didn't make,
cancel your card immediately.
Check card reading machines.
Look for anything suspicious on top of or attached to the card reader or keypad. They can be hard to spot, but are often bigger than the original machine and may hide parts of the machine.

Don't give your EBT card number or PIN by phone or text.
Scammers use text messages to get EBT card numbers and PINs. These are called phishing scams. ODHS will never send a text message to ask for your EBT card number or PIN.
