Contactless transaction technology BACK

Is the use of contactless cards secure?

The transactions you make using your contactless cards are absolutely secure, as:

  • In a contactless transaction, the card never leaves your hands, as it is you who hold it close to the POS terminal and the transaction is completed immediatel
  • The card has in-built the modern Chip & PIN security technolog
  • The contactless technology complies with the international security specifications of the Visa, MasterCard and Diners Organizations

The new transaction method is successfully and securely adopted globally.

We remind you that:

  • The use of the PIN is strictly personal. You should never disclose it to others.
  • In the event of theft or loss of your card, you must contact immediately the Bank’s Customer Service, at +30 210 326 0000.
