cPort now has chip, or EMV, debit cards! Chip card technology is a payment system improvement that will help increase card security and reduce in-store card fraud. The new Visa debit chip cards contain a microchip that stores the data needed to process transactions. By encrypting your personal information on the microchip, each transaction you make produces a unique token number that cannot be stolen and replicated, which greatly increases the security of your new card! The new chip cards still have a magnetic strip for merchants that don’t yet accept chip cards.
