What is a Chip and PIN Credit Card?
ICICI Bank Chip Credit Cards come with an embedded micro chip which provides additional security against counterfeiting / duplication of the card. It also provides an extra layer of security in the form of a Personal Identification Number (PIN). You will be required to enter your 4-digit PIN on the terminal for transactions at merchant outlets.
Will I receive a separate PIN for my Add-on cards?
Yes, you will receive a separate PIN at your mailing address for each Add-on card that has been issued to you.
Would every POS terminal ask for a PIN?
All merchants in India are progressively moving towards Chip and PIN configuration on their terminals. If the terminal is already configured for a Chip and PIN card, it will prompt for a PIN for transactions on the Chip and PIN card. If the terminal is not configured for a Chip and PIN card, you can continue to use your card without entering the PIN.
