Security and Protection

Visa payWave uses chip technology to provide you with one of the most secure contactless payment systems in the marketplace. The card does not leave your hand and you´re in control the entire time. In addition, you continue to be protected against fraudulent transactions under the Zero Liability policy, which means you are not liable for fraudulent charges provided you take reasonable precautions to protect your PIN and your card, as set out in your RBC Royal Bank Credit Card Agreement. Transactions also continue to be protected with Purchase Security and Extended Warranty Protection.
