Debit Card Security
The BNF Debit Card is equipped with the new EMV Chip technology which enhances security. This technology requires the use of the PIN to authorise purchases, hence replacing the need to sign a transaction receipt upon card usage.
For security reasons, you will be required to insert your BNF Contactless Debit Card for an EMV Chip transaction and key in your PIN:
- on your very first transaction, to ensure that the card is in your rightful possession. Contactless will be activated right after your first transaction;
- on the 6th consecutive contactless transaction, to minimise risk on repeated transactions such as when cards are lost or stolen; and
- if the transaction is over €50.
