Anonymous Is There a Difference Between a Credit Card CVV and Credit Card PIN? Or are they the same? credit card 1 Answer Recent Voted Oldest admin Enlightened 2022-04-10T09:07:01+01:00Added an answer on April 10, 2022 at 9:07 am The PIN of a Credit card is a “personal identification number” created by the user. It is usually four digits long, though some institutions require longer numbers. PINs are used by credit cards for cash advances and debit cards for cash withdrawals and purchases. On the other hand, the credit card issuer generates CVVs (“Card Verification Value“) automatically and prints them on the card. A PIN may be provided by a bank when your debit or credit card is first issued, but it is only temporary. In most circumstances, you’ll have to change it to a number that you choose. A CVV, on the other hand, is beyond your control. When asked for your CVV, you should never provide your PIN number. While it is generally safe to give your CVV number to trusted merchants, it’s not always necessary. If you’re using a card in person, the CVV code typically isn’t required. In general, providing a card security code when you’re shopping online is safe, as long as you’re making purchases from trusted websites 0 Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp You must login to add an answer.
