A New, More Secure Debit Card from Peoples Bank of Altenburg and MasterCard®

How is an EMV debit card more secure than my current debit card?

Your current debit card uses a magnetic strip on the back. Debit cards with magnetic strips contain unchanging data, meaning if someone accesses data, they can easily make purchases with the card and cardholder information.

EMV cards have data that is always changing. Whenever you use an EMV card to make a purchase, the chip within the card creates a unique transaction code that cannot be used again. This means that if a hacker stole the transaction code from a transaction, they wouldn’t be able to make any additional purchases with your card. This is what makes the Peoples Bank of Altenburg debit card so secure.

Please note: Peoples Bank of Altenburg EMV debit cards do not have contactless capabilities (waving the card in front of a machine to complete the transaction). Card dipping will be the only way to complete a transaction with you new debit card.

If you have any questions about EMV debit cards, please contact Peoples Bank of Altenburg today.
