A credit card 4-digit PIN is non-confidential and is entered into the system when making a transaction online or at a merchant shop to authenticate the user. The credit card PIN basically enhances the card security and prevents people other than the card user for misusing the credit money. When the credit PIN is entered, the system matches the user ID and the PIN before allowing the customer to make a transaction. Entering the credit card PIN is the last step of a transaction. The transaction is approved if the user ID of the customer and the credit card PIN match.
