Chip Card Technology

ScotiaCard chip card
Your ScotiaCard has an embedded computer chip that provides increased protection against lost, stolen or counterfeit card fraud. Chip cards are a proven technology that's already in use around the world. Your chip ScotiaCard now has an expiry date and will be re-issued on a regular basis, like a credit card.

Your Purchase Experience
Making Purchases with your chip card: When using your chip card to make a purchase:

  1. Insert your chip card into the chip terminal. Your chip card will remain in the terminal for the duration of the transaction.
  2. Follow the prompts and enter your secure PIN when requested.
  3. Remove your chip card when the terminal indicates the transaction is complete.

Protect Your PIN

While Scotiabank takes strong measures to ensure the security of your financial transactions and the confidentiality of your information, you play the most important role.
