Yes, “Tap to Pay” transactions use the same security standards as traditional EMV chip cards. For every “Tap to Pay” transaction, a new and unique transaction code is created by the card and the merchant terminal that secures your payment information. Once the transaction is completed, the code for that specific transaction cannot be used again.
“Tap to Pay” transactions also use the same NFC (Near Field Communication) technology as mobile payments, such as Apple Pay and Google Pay.

Look for the Contactless Indicator on the front of your card, to confirm that your card can perform “Tap to Pay” transactions.
Contactless Usage Tip
When using the “Tap to Pay” function, you should hold the card within 1-2 inches of the Contactless Symbol. The card works best if held flat over the symbol instead of at an angle.
