Virtual Credit Cards & Online Information Privacy
When we talk of Virtual credit cards one thing which comes into peoples minds is an untouchable item in numbers format and which can be used just like how any other plastic cards may work but only online. Yes, that is so true although not only it is the reason for such cards. In this world where people are not safe with their privacy information like the banking related, VCC is very important since in one way or another, it does help in securing such kind of information and which can turn to be a good security measure.
Most VCC’s have different features for example the ability to be frozen after use, the option to be disposed off after a single use, being topped up with only the amount required for use for example when verify a PayPal or eBay account, buying a standard price item and many others. Having such a card means that ones real information is kept secure and private with no single intrusion and thus limiting on the chances of fraud-stars gaining access to them.
Virtual credit cards are issued and provided by the same banking institutions just like the plastics and all of them are security verified by the providers like Visa, MasterCard and others. They are linked to ones main account with the option to only fund them with any given amount as per ones requirement. This ensures security of the remaining monies to be secure even at times when things may go wrong.
When your use your banking information on the different websites or providers which you aren’t even sure of, sch info is left in their databases just in case you make a return at a later time. And in cases of data breach and or date being compromised, chances are that your information may stolen.
If such a thing happens assuming you had used your real private data, the end result may not be what you wish and its for that why many end up loosing all of the money in banks just because of having messed up somewhere.
From a personal experience, I do recommend those who do online transactions never to use their real banking details for security purpose but rather the above means since for them may be more secure when a comparison is made. Such cards are usually free from the different providers including your bank and wonder why not secure one before its too late.
