Your Enhanced Citi® Credit Card: Introducing EMV Chip Card Technology

Chip Card Technology is on its way and Citi wants you to be ready.


Benefits of Chip Technology:

Simple. Easy. Convenient.

Chip Technology has been tested globally, proven and is in wide use around the world. It's now making its way into the United States and Citi wants you to be ready.

Added Security

Traditional magnetic stripe cards require a signature for security purposes. A Chip Card adds an additional layer of sophisticated fraud protection through an embedded microchip that turns cardmember information into a unique code when used at a chip-enabled terminal that is difficult to duplicate or copy.

Global Acceptance

This type of card has been around for more than a decade. It is already standard practice in more than 80 countries worldwide.


How your new Citi Card with Chip works:

How do I use my Citi Card with Chip?

  1. At merchants who have chip-enabled terminals, insert your Citi Card with Chip in the chip-enabled terminal, and sign to authorize the transaction.
  2. At merchants who are not yet equipped with chip-enabled terminals, swipe and sign your name as usual.
  3. For phone or online transactions, nothing changes - simply provide your credit card number and complete your online transaction as you do today.

What is a Citi Card with Chip?

A Citi Card with Chip contains an embedded microchip that encrypts cardmember information to significantly increase data security when used at a chip-enabled terminal, and makes card cloning and fraud more difficult.

Getting Started

Chip Technology is now a built-in feature from Citi and there's nothing you need to do differently in order to start using your new Citi Card with Chip.

If you do not currently have a Citi Card with Chip, it may be added to your existing card at no cost and your card will retain all the features and benefits of your current card including the same account number.
