Virtual credit cards allow you to keep your identity safe online by masking your personal details.
Credit card fraud affected over 13 million Americans in 2021, and virtual credit cards are one viable solution.
Generally speaking, virtual credit cards — or virtual account numbers — are disposable credit card details issued for one-time use to help you mask your identity when making online purchases. Virtual credit card numbers can be generated directly from your credit card account with some products, and through apps and browser extensions with others. Some newer cards are even innovating on virtual card potential, so the technology will likely become more accessible and flexible over time.
