What is a contactless card and what are the benefits?
A contactless card uses Radio Frequency (RF) technology, allowing cardholders to wave their card over a contactless payment terminal. The embedded antenna transmits the payment information to the terminal using a one-time code for each transaction. Utilizing this feature makes purchases faster, more secure, and easier.
How secure are contactless cards?
Each contactless card transaction uses a one-time code to complete the payment. This code and data are unique to each purchase and can only be used once. In addition, every contactless terminal utilizes its own secret key, which is never transmitted.
