How does Chip and Pin work?

Chip and Pin is a method of paying for items in a secure manner. It makes accessing your credit card details and using your card extremely difficult for a criminal and will provide you with more confidence when purchasing items with your credit card.

Usually, you would receive a till receipt after you have purchased your item which needs to be signed for with your signature. If a criminal managed to steal your card, they would be able to use it by forging your signature, but the bill for the card would still come to you and have to be paid for by you. Chip and PIN prevents this from happening as there is no signing involved. Your card is inserted into a Chip and PIN machine, the price that you are about to pay is displayed on the screen, then you key in your own personal 4 digit pin number and the transaction is completed.

Chip and PIN was introduced after the amount of credit card fraud rose. In 2003, 400 million worth of credit card fraud occurred in the UK. Since the revolutionary introduction of Chip and PIN cards, credit card fraud has reduced by 13%. The microchip inside the card cannot be copied as well, meaning there is no way you can make a replica of a card to steal it. These figures prove that Chip and PIN has been a success so far at preventing credit card fraud.
