Are contactless card payments secure?

Yes, contactless card payments are safe. Each transaction generates a unique, one-time code that securely protects your payment information. So even if someone was able to intercept your code, it cannot be re-used by fraudsters.

Your card must also be within 1-2 inches of the terminal for the transaction to complete. So, you can’t pay by accident or just walking by.
