      One little chip. Big peace of mind.

      More protection with every purchase at chip-enabled terminals

      BMO Mastercard® credit and debit cards now come with something extra: advanced chip technology that helps prevent fraud at the point of purchase at chip-enabled terminals where your card never has to leave your sight. Chip cards contain an embedded microchip, which provides increased protection against fraud.
