Why Are EMV Cards More Secure than Traditional Cards?

The magnetic stripe on a traditional credit and debit card stores all the sensitive cardholder information. This information can be easily replicated for counterfeiters to make purchases or convert stolen card data into cash. With EMV the card chip creates a unique transaction code that cannot be replicated.
