How does the chip make my card more secure?

Frequently Asked Question

The chip alone does not make your card more secure. A chip transaction adds another layer of security to cards by requiring the chip to produce a single-use code to validate the transaction — further protecting your card from unauthorized use. This process makes your chip card information more difficult to steal and therefore makes your chip card more difficult to counterfeit.
