What's an EMV chip card?

We all use our debit and credit cards for shopping, eating out and buying groceries. Soon you can do so with the added security benefits of an EMV chip card. The new cards are nearly impossible to counterfeit, and travel will be even easier in more than 130 countries where chip cards are already used. EMV chip cards do everything magnetic stripe cards do but even more securely; plus, you are still protected from fraud by Visa's Zero Liability policy.*
