Contactless cards are fast becoming the norm in Britain, with over 81 million debit and credit cards in circulation now carrying the functionality. In fact, it has been predicted that contactless payments will outstrip cash payments as soon as 2025!
Unfortunately, as “tap and go” technology has improved consumer convenience, it has also improved the scope for criminals and fraudsters to target victims. With all of your payment details now stored on a chip within your card, your pocket, wallet or purse is constantly broadcasting data, ready to be transferred to a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) reading terminal or device when it comes into close contact. For more information on how this works, view our guide HERE.
