Target Believes Debit Card PIN #'s Safe and Secure

Share this post

Target said today customer PIN data was stolen during the holiday shopping data breach. ABC News reports personal identification numbers meant to ensure secure transactions were among the data vacuumed from the magnetic strip of 40 million credit and debit cards. Target said the PIN data is strongly encrypted so it believes debit cards have not been comprised. To be safe some banks limited how much affected customers could withdraw from an ATM or buy with their debit cards but Target said "we remain confident that PIN numbers are safe and secure."
