Card Security

Your PIN

You will be issued with your own personal identification number (PIN) which is forwarded to you within a few days of receiving your new Redicard, Visa Debit Card or Visa Credit Card. When using your Visa Credit Card or Visa Debit Card you will be required to provide a signature when the credit option is selected. Every time you use your Redicard you will be required to enter in your PIN in order to prove that you are the owner. When you use your Visa Debit Card for cash-out transactions, you will also be required to enter your PIN. It is therefore very important that your PIN is memorised and not stored with your card for security.
