Simple Secure Smart
Introducing chip technology for Wings Financial Credit Union
All Wings Financial Credit Union Visa® Cards come with built-in chip technology. This gives you greater fraud protection when you use your card at a chip-activated terminal. Your card is not only more secure - it's also easy to use. Here's what you can look forward to as a cardholder:
- Enhanced fraud protection
When you use your card at a chip-activated terminal, the embedded chip generates a one-time use code. This code is virtually impossible to counterfeit and helps reduce in-store fraud.
- Wings' Fraud Alert System
An automated system that can identify threats faster, notify you sooner, and equip you with the tools you need to take IMMEDIATE action against fraud.
- Global acceptance
More merchants are accepting chip transactions every day. Whether you check out using chip technology or swipe your card, you can pay with confidence wherever Visa credit cards are accepted.
- Easy to use
Simply swipe your card like you do today. However, if a chip-activated terminal is available, insert your card instead and follow the prompts. See detailed steps to the right.
Keep in mind, you can continue to use your chip card online and over the phone . . . the same way you do today.
