Target launches new credit cards with tighter security

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Target is issuing what the company says are "more secure" store credit cards to shoppers.

The retailer is converting all of its credit and debit cards to chip and PIN cards. That means customers will have to enter a PIN -- not just a signature -- to complete a transaction.

The new cards create a unique code for each transaction.

The move comes two years after Target suffered a data breach, exposing personal information of up to 70 million customers.
