Means Enhanced Security
Whether it’s a low fixed rate, points for purchases, or cash-back, we have the credit card you need. Along with choice and versatility, there is another common denominator: our cards offer superb security options. Your data stays safe, secure, and protected with every transaction.
Our cards all offer EMV (chip card) technology. This provides added payment security for you – while making it more difficult for fraudsters to create counterfeit cards or steal your data. Unlike magnetic-stripe cards, the chip card creates a unique transaction code with every payment; a code that cannot be used again. While EMV technology cannot fully prevent data breaches, it makes counterfeiting much less likely.
Signature-Based Transactions Are Safer
Visa also offers enhanced (zero liability) protection on all signature-based transactions. This builds enhanced protection against potentially fraudulent transactions – and once you report it, you won’t be responsible if fraud occurs. And since you’re not entering your PIN, you reduce the possibility of someone stealing it.
