About EVC® - Ellipse Verification Code:
EVC (Ellipse Verification Code) is the technology driving the latest generation EMV micromodule, commonly referred to as the chip, featuring a mini digital display. This display shows a 3-digit security code that changes every time the card is “dipped” or “tapped” for an in-person transaction or refreshed with an integrated mobile phone app. The dynamic code eliminates e-commerce payment fraud by making stolen card details ineffectual. If the card security code is copied fraudulently, it will have changed by the time the fraudsters try to use the card information. Additionally, the chip incorporates an “Invisible Mode”: a feature enabling the authorized cardholder to wipe the digital display blank, thus preventing the theft of the card’s information. EVC ensures the protection of payment card information directly at the source, on the card itself.
