Absolutely. Apart from the fact that payments under £30 can be made without entering your PIN, your contactless card has the same anti-fraud protection as regular ‘chip & pin’ cards.

For added protection, you will occasionally be asked to enter your pin when making a contactless payments and your PIN will always be needed for payments of over £30.
