11 © Family Economics & Financial Education – January 2007 –– Financial Institution Unit – Contactless Payment - 11 Funded by a grant from Take Charge America, Inc. to the Norton School of Family and Consumer Sciences at the University of Arizona G1 Safety  Contactless payment as implemented by American Express, Master Card, Discover and Visa is secure Older forms with radio frequency identification (RDIF) do not have the same safety features Devices could be read from a few inches to a few feet away increasing the risk of fraudulent use

12 © Family Economics & Financial Education – January 2007 –– Financial Institution Unit – Contactless Payment - 12 Funded by a grant from Take Charge America, Inc. to the Norton School of Family and Consumer Sciences at the University of Arizona G1 Safety  American Express, MasterCard, Discover and Visa contactless payment devices include: Unique codes that change for each transaction  Payment networks can detect and reject any attempt to use the same code more than once  Therefore, if a fraudster should “read” information from a contactless transaction, the information would be useless The customer’s name is not exchanged between the device and the terminal  Some smart chips in the devices do not even hold the customer’s name, therefore ID theft is more difficult

13 © Family Economics & Financial Education – January 2007 –– Financial Institution Unit – Contactless Payment - 13 Funded by a grant from Take Charge America, Inc. to the Norton School of Family and Consumer Sciences at the University of Arizona G1 Safety Some payment devices do not include the cardholder’s account number  They use an alternate number that is not used in any other transaction, therefore ID theft is more difficult Transactions are completed solely by the customer  The device is never handed over to a store clerk, therefore personal information is kept more secure Smart chips only send signals a short distance, 2-4 inches  The customer needs to make a deliberate effort to initiate the payment transactions
