Yes. Tapping to pay with your Visa contactless card is a safer way to pay because it helps you avoid touching surfaces at checkout.
It’s also secure because just like the trusted security of chip cards, each transaction is accompanied by a one-time code. To make a payment, your contactless card must be placed within 1- 2 inches of the Contactless Symbol located on the checkout terminal in order for the sale to take place (so you can’t pay accidentally). And don’t worry, even if you tap twice, you won’t be charged twice.
