"You have no reason not to use Capitec Bank or FNB’s virtual card," says tech journo Nafisa Akabor. "It’s way more secure."

Clients have complete, on-demand control of things such as limits and users can cancel it in an instant.

Refilwe Moloto asked tech journalist Nafisa Akabor what a virtual card is, and how it keeps you safe.
