The protective Sticker can be used with any type of bank card, which has a chip.

If you have to use your bank card without the Protective Sticker, you can carefully remove it and stick it back on the magnetic stripe afterwards. We do not recommend doing this more than 4-5 times.

The life span of the Protective Sticker is similar to the one of a bank card – 2-3 years.

When done with precision you can remove it and stick it back on the card between 4-5 times.

The functionality of the sticker depends on the country where it will be used. There is a possibility that a certain country’s infrastructure has not migrated to reading chips. Therefore, the ATM will not be able to read the card in the presence of the protective sticker. In case you have questions regarding a specific country, please do not hesitate to contact us via the contact form.

The protective sticker works on all ATMs and POS terminals, who’s infrastructure and software have migrated to chip reading.

No, applying simply tape/sticker on the magnetic stripe of the bank card will not protect your bank card. It will in fact cause your card to malfunction. When you insert your bank card in an ATM, is looks for the necessary information first in the magnetic stripe. If there is tape over the magnetic stripe, the ATM will not find any information and will not recognise your card as a bank card. Therefore, you will not be able to complete a transaction.

We do not advice you to try and burn you bank card’s RFID chip. It is not located in the same place for every single bank card. The act of burning could harm the overall functionality of the bank card.

Unfortunately, hiding your PIN code is not enough to protect your bank card. Fraudsters sometimes place a second pad, thus retrieving your PIN code even if you are hiding it from the camera.
