The New Credit Card with a Keypad, Built to Fight Online Fraud

Visa have shown off their new card built to combat online shopping fraud. The card, to be tested in Britain next year has a 12 button Keypad and display powered by a battery which  should last 3 years.

Card holders will be required to key in their pin every time they make a purchase online. A security code is then sent to the card which appears on the display which then needs to be typed into the website.

‘We hope this new card will help allay those fears, and give consumers more confidence when shopping online.’ said Visa’s Sandra Alzetta.
