An EMV card is a form of payment card that uses a chip embedded in the card to securely store and process information. This type of card is becoming increasingly popular due to its added security features. The chip contains advanced encryption technology that helps protect your personal information from being stolen or misused. Additionally, EMV cards require you to input your PIN at the point of sale, making it harder for criminals to steal your credit or debit card information. An EMV stands for Europay-Mastercard-Visa.
