About Chip-based Payment Cards
A chip card is a standard-size credit card plastic with an embedded microprocessor chip that stores and protects cardholder data. If your card is lost, stolen or compromised in a data breach, the embedded microchip makes the card extremely difficult to counterfeit or copy.
