What type of built-in security and safety features do Fremont Bank Debit Cards offer?
Fremont Bank offers many different levels of built-in security and safety features on our debit cards:
Fremont Bank debit cards are secured with a built-in microchip. When used at a chip-enabled terminal, the transaction requires the chip to produce a single-use code to validate the transaction. This added security makes it extremely difficult for the card to be copied or counterfeited.
