Is it Chip and PIN, or Chip and Sign?  I thought Chip and PIN was available only in Europe and other areas outside the USA and that the cards we were issued stateside were Chip and Sign?  Has something changed recently?  If so, that's wonderful news!  Chip and PIN can be used at automated kiosks, presumably?

Pretty sure Citi's "Global Chip" cards are Chip and Signature, not Chip and PIN.

Yup, looks that way.  Went on line and ordered a replacement DP card.

Re: Just ordered 3 emv cards aka chip/pin

From what I've read, how EMV is set up depends on the credit card issuer in question and the prevailing standards of the country involved.  Most of the card companies in the US are doing "chip and signature".  From a user standpoint, this isn't any different than doing a "swipe and signature" with current magnetic stripe technology, and probably the main reason why companies adopted it in the US.  In other parts of the world, "chip and pin" seems to be the standard of choice.  In this case the credit card authenticates much like an ATM card

 

It's also possible for a card to do both standards.  For example, a card could be configured to do chip and signature as the default, offering chip and pin only in places where a signature authentication is not possible (like an automated kiosk).
