Have you heard of Virtual Credit Cards? Don't you think you need to know something about them?

What is a VCC?

The word VCC stands for Virtual Credit Cards, a card which works just exactly like how a real plastic credit card works only that for it is a virtual one (an untouchable one). Back in the days before such cards, many people fell victims of identity thefty whenever they could make a payment off their cards to an untrustable sellers or merchants but today and with the VCC's in existence, that is limited and only a few who still have no access to such cards are still facing this.

How Does A VCC Work?

A virtual credit card works like a real plastic card only that for it cant be touched. A VCC uses numbers which tells that its a credit card at time of making a purchase and what one needs is to have the card numbers, the names on the card, the expiry date, the CVV and other information.

Why Is a VCC Taken To Be More Secure?

Since a VCC uses numbers only, it is taken to be more secure than a real plastic card. Many VCC's are made with a functionality to be locked and unlocked at any time as the user wants. This kind of security means that ones information is secure even at times when the card data has been compromised. One only unlocks the card when he or she wants to use it and locks it after use. There are so many free virtual credit card providers although each of them has its own terms of use and rules which one should follow.

Conclusion

While plastic cards are worth as they offer many alternatives when using cash, VCC's too cant be overlooked since they are more secure than the real cards. Have you tried them yet?
