A recent Gallup poll found, that 69% of Americans, are “often” or “sometimes” endangered with a credit card by hackers. It’s not shocking. Consumers are becoming more educated on the subject, the financial institutions are starting to do more to combat fraud, including the introduction of new types of credit cards. An example of the latter is chip and PIN technology, which has celebrated consumers to the President for his ability to help prevent fraud. But it is the panacea that it was made to be?

Let’s take a closer look at what brings this technology. In contrast to cards, with which a magnetic stripe, contains a user account information, implement an embedded microprocessor chip card with the cardholder’s information in a way which makes it invisible, even if hackers take payment data while it is in transit between merchants and banks.The technology generates information also unique, difficult, but not impossible to falsify. Is there a cryptogram the banks to see if the data flow has changed and a counter each time the card registered sequential (kind of like the numbers on a check), is used so that a would-be cheater would have to guess, allows the accurate historical and dynamic transaction number for the charge to be approved.

Already used in all other countries of the g-20 as a secure payment method, find (short for Europay, MasterCard and visa) chip and PIN cards on the consumer side of the global payment system known as EMC. The system is its roll-out in the United States in the year 2015, and many of us in the banking and privacy industries believe that it was subject to the flow of money hackers while at the same time cutting down on credit and EC card fraud is stubborn.

Some people fall in love at first sight. For me, it was the first tweet. That my friends was not very surprising, who listened to stories about my Internet flirtation had since I was a teenager, but as my husband and I met to gawk at us still something about newcomers in our lives.

“Wait, you love on Twitter find?” ask them. “I thought that was only for the messages read.”

When I saw Thomas for the first time, he was just a small avatar on my screen. My mouse hovered over his gorgeous eyes, piercing through the pixels, causing my fingers to feel free so that I could spend another one more second. Most say that eyes are the Windows to the soul, though his Twitter stream is what really begged me. He was informative, humorous and a little raw. Although it was a computer screen and a few hundred miles between us, I felt like I him this virtual stranger.Retweeting his words to his digital in eye-popping jump, I messages directly to questions, whether he wanted to drink at the next meeting I in his town was, visiting with my family (Yes, it turns out we were growing apart on two cities).

A month later we started travelling exclusively dating, secretly mid-week Amtrak in our schedules, each other above the peaks of our laptops giggle, when it was time to work and ends our short time together with slow dance parties for two in my studio apartment. But we often again in Twitter our love story more characters enter.
