One thought on “Lack of Chip & PIN Security

  1. Paul Clancy

    The secret about maximum security for Chip & Pin is that the Chip & Pin devices cannot be removed to be modified and secondly the entry of a pin number cannot be viewed.
    If you go to our website (http://www.visualsecuritysolutions.com) you will see devices that achieve this.
    The only transaction that anybody other than the cardholder can see when the concealed data entry devices are being used are 4 unmarked buttons being selected.
    What is ludicrous is that MasterCard & Visa advise that a pin number and a credit card should not be carried together and yet this is precisely what happens in a Chip & Pin retail transaction thus alerting any potential thieves to both an active card and a relevant pin.
