Chip technology helps protect your card


Chip technology helps protect your card

Your new East West Bank Visa® Debit Card is embedded with chip technology, providing an extra layer of security against counterfeit fraud when it is used at chip-enabled terminals or ATMs.  When purchases are made using the chip feature, a unique security code is generated to validate the transaction. This makes it extremely difficult to duplicate or copy cardholder information, further protecting your card from unauthorized use.


Here is how chip-enabled
card readers work:


1. Insert your card

Insert your card into the terminal with the chip side first, facing up.  Leave your card in the terminal while the transaction is being processed.

2. Enter PIN or Sign

Follow the prompts on the terminal and either enter your PIN or provide your signature as instructed.

3. Retrieve card

Always remember to take your card when your transaction is complete.


Paying with a chip card online or over the phone:

When making an online or over-the-phone payment, provide your card information as you normally would.
