Giving priority to enhanced security and greater privacy, Bahrain’s pioneer in retail and commercial banking, BBK, had recently announced the launch of their new EMV Compliant Visa Electron Debit Card, which is now powered by Smart Chip technology.
The Bank is now in the process of distributing those cards to enable its customers to transact on their accounts with greater security and ease. All the customer needs to do is to call the Bank’s call centre on 17207777 to arrange for the card to be delivered or collected.
“Our aim at BBK has always been to provide our customers with products that result in complete customer satisfaction. The new EMV Smart Chip Debit Card will assist us in getting closer to achieving that aim to ensure that our customers obtain the security and comfort of having the latest technology while conducting their daily transactions. The EMV Visa Electron Debit Card is equipped with security enhancements to reduce fradulent transactions and hence it is very important for all our customers to get their new cards collected at the earliest by contacting our call centre,” said Axel Hofmann, Head of Retail Banking Division – BBK
In due course, BBK will stop all magnetic strip cards, the date of which will be communicated in the future.
