Capital One Users: Take Advantage of Virtual Credit Cards

This year has been filled with online shoppers since the pandemic started. We have also seen the spike in phishing emails and hacks as well. That is why it is important to have good credit card security when using a card online. Capital One credit card owners will be pleased with a new feature they have on their website.

They released an add-on for a user’s browser that can work in Chrome or Firefox. It allows owners to create virtual card numbers that link back to their credit card. You can find the Capital One add-on on the Google Store. Once installed, when users head to the checkout pages for a store, it will prompt users for the virtual cards.

Virtual card numbers disguise the real card number. A virtual card can remove the worry of getting one’s credit card information stolen when shopping on a website that might not be legitimate.

While shopping online, users can lock and unlock the cards they use. Users will also be notified where the cards were used and when.

Be safe this season and use virtual numbers.
