The EMV chip embedded in this card is similar to other Visa chip cards, which feature several layers of security.

To ensure safety and avoid unauthorised usage, users will receive an OTP on each transaction.

To ensure secure payments between a contactless card and a contactless-enabled POS terminal, the Visa PayWave card uses NFC technology.
