The ATMs that I have used in my area all seem to have a large key pad that is open and very visible to anyone standing nearby. In an age of ID theft and security awareness I think it would be a good idea to have a small covered barrier on each sides of the keypads so bystanders cannot see a user punching in their PIN numbers. I realize that it would be expensive to change all ATMs currently in use. Please consider this for the next machines you install. Sooner or later these current ATMs will come to the end of their life cycle and have to be replaced. The replacements you chose to install could be built to be more secure.
