EMV Chip Cards
Big Security with a Small Chip
Peace of Mind
Your MasterCard features the additional security of an embedded microchip (also called an EMV Card or Chip).
Your chip card comes with proven technology that is already in use around the world. This makes traveling internationally now even easier.
Show with confidence — at home and abroad — knowing that the chip in your card can help protect you from fraud.
Chips Cards are Easy to Use
Your MasterCard has chip and magnetic stripe technology. That means that regardless of what type of terminal a merchant has, you’ll be able to use your card anywhere MasterCard is accepted.
At retailers with chip-enabled terminals: Insert your card and follow the prompts on the terminal.
At retailers without chip terminals: Swipe your card and proceed as you normally would.
Over the phone or online: Provide your card information the way you always have when you’re ready to make a purchase.
Pin Vs. Signature
Depending on the merchant, you will either be prompted to sign for the transaction or to enter your PIN.
Note: Call the number shown on the sticker to select/change your PIN. For security reasons and prior to first usage, all accounts require activation and PIN selection.
