What is Chip & PIN debit?
Chip & PIN cards feature an embedded microchip that encrypts cardholder information into a unique code improving security when making purchases at Chip-activated terminals. Chip & PIN technology provides better protection against fraud, with the added security of a Personal Identification Number (PIN).
How do I activate my card?
You can activate it by:
- Activate at any Scotiabank or Cirrus ABM and enter your existing PIN.
- To enable contactless transactions, a cash withdrawal must be made from the card.
