Modern password management stipulates that it’s best to use a different password for every website. If one of them gets hacked, or your password is revealed, you just change it.
As credit card information is even more sensitive than passwords - what if I did the same with Revolut’s virtual cards? I would generate one for Amazon, one for Uber, etc., and if I received a suspicious charge with any of them (or if the site was hacked), I’d just delete the virtual card and generate a new one. With Revolut’s ability to label virtual cards, it seems extremely easy - in fact Revolut is similar to a password manager in this sense.
- Is it good practice or am I just paranoid?
- Would I breach some written or fair use rules by having - let’s say - 50 different virtual cards?
