EMV Chip Card Technology
Get Ready To Dip!
There's a new and better way to fight card fraud, so get ready to dip! The Community Bank's cards are being reissued with EMV chip technology to help protect your information. These EMV cards offer an enhanced security against counterfeiting or cloning. To make purchases, you "dip" your card into a slot and briefly hold it there until verified.
EMV secures the payment transaction with enhanced functionality in three areas:
- Card authentication, protecting against counterfeit cards.
- Cardholder verification, authenticating the cardholder and protecting against lost and stolen cards.
- Transaction authorization, using issuer-defined rules to authorize transactions.
Why are EMV cards more secure than traditional cards?
It is the small, metallic square you will see on new cards. That is a computer chip and it is what sets apart the new generation of cards. The magnetic stripes on traditional cards contain unchanging data. Whoever accesses that data gains the sensitive card and cardholder information necessary to make purchases. It is important to know EMV chip technology does not provide additional fraud protection for online purchases.
