Lake City Bank Visa® Debit Cards now feature an embedded chip that improves security when you make purchases at a chip-activated terminal.
Why the Chip?
This new technology provides you with two great benefits.
Enhanced Fraud Protection
When you use your card at a chip-activated terminal, the embedded chip generates a one-time use code to help reduce in-store fraud.
More merchants are accepting chip transactions every day. Whether you check out using chip technology or swipe your card, you can pay with confidence – wherever Visa is accepted.
How to Use It
If a chip-activated terminal is available, follow these instructions to use your chip card.
- Insert the chip end of your card into the terminal with the chip facing up.
- Keep your card in the terminal and follow the prompts.
- Remove your card when prompted and take your receipt.
If a merchant is not yet chip-activated, you can still swipe your card to pay.
