CHIP TECHNOLOGY MAKES AN ALREADY SECURE CARD EVEN SAFER
We’re pleased to introduce the added security of chip technology to your First American Bank Debit MasterCard. Chip cards have a microchip embedded in the card that provides increased protection against fraud. If you have not already done so, now is the time to activate your new chip enabled debit card.
Your chip card comes with technology that is already in use around the world, and has been proven to reduce counterfeit fraud.
Shop with confidence—at home and around the world— knowing that the chip in your card can help protect you from fraud while opening up the world for you.
CHIP CARDS ARE EASY TO USE
Your First American Bank Debit MasterCard has chip and magnetic stripe technology. That means, regardless of what type of terminal a merchant has, you’ll be able to use your card anywhere MasterCard is accepted.
- At retailers with chip-enabled terminals. Insert your card and follow the prompts on the terminal.
- At retailers without chip terminals. Swipe your card and proceed as you normally would.
- Over the phone or online. Provide your card information the way you always have when you’re ready to make a purchase.
