TSB Chip Card

Your TSB Debit Card will be upgraded to EMV chip technology. Our EMV cards come with the same great benefits, plus enhanced security and protection against debit card fraud.


What is EMV chip technology?

EMV chips are little microprocessors embedded into your debit card that encrypt payment information when used at chip-enabled locations and ATMs. Unlike magnetic-strip cards, every time a card is used for payment, the chip creates a unique transaction code that cannot be used again. This process makes it much harder for fraudsters to capture payment information and create duplicate cards.


Benefits of chip cards:
  • Stronger protection against fraud. Chip cards provide an extra layer of security when used at a chip-enabled location or ATM.
  • Easy to use. Although paying with your chip card may be different, it is still a simple process. You can also use the stripe on the back of your card if the location isn’t chip-enabled.
  • Accepted globally. Chip technology is already used in many countries worldwide, giving you a more secure way to pay, wherever you go.
