Is a chip card more secure than my current card?
Yes. Chip cards add an additional layer of security to the safeguards that already protect your card. Each time you use your chip card, it generates a code that is unique to that transaction. This makes it harder to counterfeit your card or to use it fraudulently for in-store purchases.
How do I use them?
When used at merchants with chip-enabled card terminals it's as easy as:
- Insert the card, face up and chip end first, into the terminal.
- Leave the card in the terminal during the entire transaction.
- Follow the instructions on the screen and either sign or enter your PIN as needed. Be sure to remove your card and take your receipt when the transaction is complete.
Can I still use my card if the merchant doesn't have a chip-enabled terminal?
Yes, you will swipe your card through the terminal, just as you do today.
Can I use it to make purchases online or by phone?
Yes, you can use your chip card to make these purchases as you do today.
Can I use my card at an ATM?
Yes, for ATM transactions, insert your card into terminal and follow the instructions on the screen. Depending on the type of ATM, you might be prompted to re-insert your card. Leave the card in the ATM until the transaction is complete and the card is released, and then remove your card and any money you might have withdrawn.
