One of the big selling points of debit cards, highlighted in ad campaigns and on bank websites, is that you'll have "zero liability" for losses if your card is lost or stolen—just like credit cards.
Turns out that's only sort of true.
In fact, nearly every debit card comes with restrictions in cases of theft. Some banks limit your coverage if you are slow to report a lost card or potential fraud. Some don't cover fraudulent ATM transactions. Some may require that you show "reasonable care" in protecting your card or PIN number.
