University ID bank card security stronger than standard cards

Andy Williams   ||   Mar 03, 2011  ||   

Seattle University’s new student ID card with debit functionality is probably more secure than standard cards. For example, the U.S. Bank-backed card has no account number on the face of the card. As one university spokesperson said: “Everyone’s pretty protected because your digits aren’t out there. It’s got your face on it, and it can be canceled immediately any time.”

The new card with the debit option was launched in January in response to student polls and surveys. The university wanted to make sure that implementing the debit card option would be seen as a positive action to the students.

The debit part of the card is optional and students can cancel the debit function without affecting any other services associated with the card.

In Additon, with U.S. Bank’s zero liability policy, the card holder is not responsible for any unauthorized transactions that occur after a card is lost or stolen. The bank will refund the individual if any fraud should occur.
