Transcript of Understanding Debit Cards

Understanding Debit Cards
Most cards will clearly state whether they are a debit or credit card here.

Most cards will also have the name of the lender or their logo here too.
This 16-digit number is your 'card number'. It's essential to keep it safe and secure, as it's the number you will need to use when shopping online, or buying things over the phone.

If a criminal is able to get this number, then it can make it easier to clone the card.
This is the expiry date of your card, which is the date the card will run out and needs to be replaced. Again, you will need this when making purchase online or over the phone.

Some cards also display issue dates (which is when the card started) and issue numbers. Don't worry if your card does not have these.
This is the Card Security code; these three numbers are a crucial final security feature that is important when making online or telephone purchases. Keep this number safe and secure, and never tell it to anyone.
All cards have small print here; these are often things like emergency contact numbers or helplines in case the card is lost and needs to be returned to the owner.
This is the 'Chip' which is used in 'Chip and PIN' machines. It's actually a SIM card - like the one in your mobile phone - and lets you use your card at most retailers.

Once you insert your card (with the SIM), then you will need to enter your PIN. Always keep your PIN safe.
All cards will have the cardholders name written on them clearly. When you quote this to make an online or telephone purchase, it's important that you give your name exactly as it's written here.
This symbol tells you what sort of card you have. This particular card is a Mastercard, but both Visa and Visa Debit are very common.

This is another detail you will need to know when making purchases online or over the phone.
This is the signature strip that you need to sign. Signatures aren't often used to verify card use anymore, but it is still important to do this with a biro or ballpoint pen.
This is an example of a debit card, selected especially for this exercise. Let's go through it step-by-step and see what it means.
Front of the card
Back of the card
This is a magnetic strip: it's used to swipe your card for some card-readers, but is becoming increasingly out of use.

When disposing of an old card, it's important to break this strip, as well as the SIM chip.
This hologram is actually a security feature, which is designed to make it harder to clone a card. However, it doesn't stop a criminal from stealing the actual card details, so you still need to be careful.
