How we keep your cards safe from fraud
Your new card comes equipped with EMV technology. The small chip visible on the face of your card will provide you with added security during transactions. Each time you use your card at an EMV-enabled retailer, the chip will send a unique transaction code for each purchase. Because these cards still have magnetic strips used at retailers that have not yet adopted EMV and printed numbers used online or over the phone, it is still important for you to continue monitor your accounts for unauthorized charges.
Added Layer of Protection
Your EMV chip contains information needed to process your transaction at a retailer or ATM; no personal information is stored on the chip. Because each transaction code is unique, chip cards make it extremely difficult to counterfeit a card.
Using your Card
Your card will continue to work at any merchant that accepts Visa®. For those with EMV, simply insert your card into the EMV reader, or for those with a traditional terminal, swipe your card with your magnetic stripe.
