As chip technology will soon become the security standard in the U.S., many merchants are beginning to accept chip cards and we want you to be ready. You’ll enjoy greater security when making purchases at a chip-enabled terminal since the chip provides better protection against counterfeit fraud. Chip technology is already used in over 130 countries around the world, including Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom, so you’ll enjoy greater acceptance when traveling internationally.
Visa connects the world through secure commerce and is constantly working to protect your payment information. Visa’s global fraud rate is less than 6 cents for every $100 transacted – which is about one-third the fraud rate experienced in the 1990s. Whether you are shopping online, using your phone to pay, or buying groceries at the store, here are some of the ways Visa protects you from fraud.
We all use our debit and credit cards for shopping, eating out and buying groceries. Soon you can do so with the added security benefits of an EMV chip card. The new cards are nearly impossible to counterfeit, and travel will be even easier in more than 130 countries where chip cards are already used. EMV chip cards do everything magnetic stripe cards do but even more securely; plus, you are still protected from fraud by Visa’s Zero Liability policy.*
