CREDIT CARD WITH FRAUD BUSTING DISPLAY
A credit card with a digital display that randomly generates a security code is being launched as a way of combating fraud.
Oberthur Technologies is currently in discussions with UK banks about rolling out the technology and will have cards “in the hands” of consumers in France by the end of the year.
Credit card fraud costs banks millions of pounds each year.
One expert said a different design for credit cards was overdue.
“In some ways, it’s surprising it has taken so long for this to appear,” Prof Alan Woodward, a cybersecurity expert from Surrey University, told the BBC.
The card provides an extra layer of security by replacing the static printed three-digit security code on the back of the card with a mini screen which displays a random code that changes automatically every hour.
