EMV Chip Security

Your Bell Bank Debit Mastercard® features EMV “chip” technology, which is even more secure than the traditional magnetic strip. Your card’s chip actually contains your card number, name and other information in encrypted format. Chip security makes every transaction you make unique, and it is extremely difficult for the card to be copied or counterfeited.

(Of course, your card still has a magnetic strip on the back, so you can use it at merchants who do not yet have chip card terminals.)
