What is an EMV chip card, and how does it work?

All Greenlight Cards are fully-equipped EMV chip cards. EMV cards are smart cards that store data on integrated circuits in addition to the magnetic stripe on the back of the card, which adds an extra layer of security to your card and account.  

When making a purchase at a store that has a chip-enabled card reader, simply insert your card into the reader, enter your unique PIN, and complete their purchase. Each PIN is unique to your card, and be set and reset from the Greenlight app settings.
