Keypad Credit Card
Identity theft has almost become commonplace these days. One of the easiest ways for someone to ruin your good name is to snatch your credit card info online and rack up a small fortune. Thankfully there are solutions like the Keypad Credit Card that will render the card virtually useless without your passcode.
The Keypad Credit Card features a small numberpad on the back of the card which you’ll use to input your PIN. It will then generate a one-time use passcode that you can use when processing online transactions. I’m not one that usually gets paranoid about making online purchases, though I’m sure that many people would rest easier having this extra layer of protection.
There isn’t a lot of information on this product just yet, so there are still a few questions left unanswered. My biggest concern is how this will affect your everyday purchases at brick-and-mortar stores. I like to use my card because it’s quicker and easier than messing with cash, having to enter a PIN on my card just so I can get a new number to enter would certainly become a hassle. I would imagine that regular transactions would work much the same as they do on any other credit card.
