Having a bank card allows you to make purchases on the internet. However, communicating your codes, despite the 3D Secure systems put in place by the banks, still represents a risk. Banking establishments have therefore found a new solution to secure transactions: the virtual bank card.
The principle of the virtual bank card is simple: each time the customer uses it on the Internet, he has the possibility of using a temporary card number only associated with the current purchase. Thus, the possible hacker who would have succeeded in obtaining these codes will not be able to do anything with them. Now, thanks to online banking, it is even possible to get a free virtual bank card.
