Smarter Technology. Added Security.
A chip card - also know as an EMV card - adds an extra layer of security when you pay. Chip cards can be used anywhere your other cards are used, but the chip functionality only works at a business that has an activated chip-enabled terminal.
This chip generates a unique, one-time code each time you dip your card at a chip-enabled terminal. Your purchase can only be approved with the chip-generated code.
The chip in your card is virtually impossible to duplicate. That means attempts by a fraudster to create and use counterfeit cards will be much harder.
3 Simple Steps On How To Use Your Chip Card
Insert the chip end of your EMV chip card into the chip-enabled terminal with the chip facing up.
Keep your card in the terminal throughout the transaction and follow the prompts on the screen.
Remove your card from the terminal when prompted.
